At the end of a long day, most people just want a place to unwind and relax. Creating an out door retreat may take a bit of hard work at first but the rewards later are so worth it. The size of your garden isn't important, but make sure to select low-maintenance plants to simplify garden care. Don't let a lack of space deter you: A balcony filled with container gardens, and a comfy chair can provide as much relaxation as a large garden. As a busy mom on the go I lean towards simple and low maintenance. I stick with perennial's for the gardens and planters on my deck and front porch for nice pops of colour. Here are 6 of my most favourite perennials/flowers to grow in my gardens. The best part is you don't need to have a green thumb to grow them. A little love and water go along way with these plants.
Adding accessories to your outdoor space is an other great way to make it cozy and inviting. You can add pops of colour with outdoor pillows, cushions, rugs and trays. Candles, lanterns and torches also bring an even more dramatic look at night time. I hope these little tips have inspired you to get out and make your outdoor space your own. "Get Inspired Today!'
