A Hidden Garden
garden or patio area should be an extension of your home's interior.
A garden can be a quiet retreat or a place for entertaining. This
lush garden retreat invokes images of the Secret Garden with green
ivy, hostas and other shade loving plants.
Brick walls, green with ivy, set the backdrop for this Hidden Garden
decor with an aged looking, arched door allowing
one to enter this special retreat. Brick or stone paths give a feel
of age and can lead you to hidden corners of your garden where a
stone bench might rest for a comfortable, secluded reading spot.
Secreted treasures such, as cherub figures, scattered throughout
your hidden garden are a fun way to add some interest and whimsy.
Try online sites like gardners.com
for a wide variety of garden accessories for your hidden garden.
For entertaining in your Hidden Garden, try using a wrought iron
bistro set and hang simple lanterns from trees or shepherd's hooks.
Tea lights will add a soft romantique feel. Antique
china keeps the feel of times gone by and can be mixed and matched
for a less formal feel.
This secret garden will have you wanting to read all the classics
like Bronte, Alcott and Wharton.
