Welcome to Garden Ideas!
Welcome to Garden Ideas! In the garden-ideas.com website you'll find information about some of the most popular & common garden projects. There are three areas of ideas for gardens that are nearly universal. These are not only ideas for large gardens or backyards, but can be effective for decks, patios, and smaller backyards as well.
Plants & Garden Planters
The foundation of a great garden is the plants, also known as "the green". In many areas, the soil itself is not ideal for flourishing plants, and amending soil can be a difficult, time consuming process. The answer is garden planters and container gardens. There is an almost unlimited selection of garden planters to choose from, in style, size, and material of construction. To see how a small space can have a big garden impact, see our section on container gardening. For more in-depth information, visit container-gardens.com
Attracting Birds & Butterflies
For both practical and aesthetic reasons, birds are desirable in most garden settings. They eat insects, scare off some pests, and bring the beauty of nature to your garden. Birds require three essential elements: 1. Water 2. Food 3. Shelter. Water in the garden is easy, simply add a water feature or fountain, or a bird bath. Food can be delivered via a bird feeder specifically designed for the species you are trying to attract. And shelter for birds is available via a birdhouse. For mre information, visit our Attacting Birds and Butterflies section to learn how to share your garden than with these beautiful and graceful creatures.
Water Features & Fountains
The benefits of garden fountains or water features are numerous. As we mentioned above, water is a key element for attracting birds, and keeping them coming back. The sound of water is very soothing, and evokes the peaceful serenity of nature. The variety of water fountains and water features provides for every taste, budget, and landscape. There are wall fountains, cast stone centerpiece fountains, lightweight fiberglass fountains, even tabletop fountains for very small spaces. See our section on Ponds & Fountains for more information.
