Dream Garden Must-Haves

Since April showers bring May flowers, we are prepared for our gardens to burst forth with life in the next few weeks, and to celebrate that, here are some of our dream garden must-haves that go beyond flowers and vegetables.

A Multi-Pergola Walkway

The illusion that this garden goes on forever is one we can subscribe to.

A Water Feature (preferably a pond, ideally with a waterfall)

Being from Maine, we love the sound of ocean waves crashing on the shore and the
babbling of woodland brooks, so a water feature with a waterfall would be most appropriate.
Not to mention it would offer additional gardening potential for water-loving plants and flowers.

A Shed for Storage

Because gardening supplies deserve their own space, especially in a dream garden.
And, a cozy storage shed gives any garden a timeless storybook feel.

A Dining Space

For tea parties, morning coffee and afternoon garden soirees,
we would use teak furniture to create our garden dining room.

A Place to Sit and Rest

This lavender bench has so much character, and gives a pop of color
to a space with lots of greenery. But we also like the soft look of the
arch arbor-bench combo, which flawlessly blends in with surrounding
plant life (add an outdoor accent pillow for more comfort)!

Raised Beds (DIY beds are the best, but this stone one is exceptional)

Raised beds offer more opportunity for walkways and paths,
and provide beautiful architectural value in addition to functionality.
