WELCOME to the 2014 #A-Z Blog Challenge
Inspired By My Pinterest Boards: This Year’s Category is GARDENING
You might want to skip the garden and go directly to having a garden shed. Calling these structures ‘sheds’ hardly seems elegant enough for one of these wonderful small buildings. See others at Garden Sheds & More. The reality is that most of us have a shed that looks like this.
The challenge is how to settle a plain square structure with no personality, however practical, into a garden. Creating a landscaping design around the shed is a must.
Here is an photo of a simple fix. A path, a few plantings in prepared beds around the sides that can have a variety of flowers and small shrubs. Place some containers about and a trellis on the side with a climbing vine. You will have come a long way to settling a shed in to your landscape rather than settling for the ‘plopped on the ground look’ these basic sheds are in their first incarnation.
I know this is what we would all prefer. I can see myself writing in this charming shed close to my garden, a happy girl. With a vivid imagination, we can start with images that look like this and turn our ‘reality-check sheds’ into so much more.
