Sometimes a garden can seem a little one-dimensional. All your plants might be close to the ground, or perhaps you even only have a lawn. Everything in the garden is often about what’s going in down below, from patios to paths. However, there’s a lot you can do to create a more dynamic garden.
Apart from tall trees, the best ways to add height to your garden is with a garden structure. Although they are often made from wood, they don’t have to be. They can also be constructed from metal and, in the case of greenhouses, even glass. Try these ideas to add a structure to your garden.

Sheds are often seen as a man’s domain. It’s where the man of the house keeps his tools and perhaps goes to hide when he wants to get away from it all. But there can be much more to a shed than being a rustic man cave. If you’re a keen gardener, it’s also the perfect place to keep your gardening supplies. However, you can also think outside the box for ways to use your shed. It could become a workshop, office or secluded space you can use to get away from the house. Many people use their shed to write or paint in. With the right amenities, it could be very comfortable.
A gazebo is a beautiful structure to enjoy during the summer when the sun is out. However, they’re also great when the weather isn’t too great, thanks to having a roof to shelter under. A gazebo can be a temporary structure that you get out for garden parties. But you can also build a more permanent gazebo in your garden. A wooden gazebo is a sweet addition to your outdoor space. You could add some seating to create a comfortable place to get some peace or to socialise. Your gazebo could be in a traditional style, or you could consider something more modern for a contemporary garden.
Keen gardeners should consider adding a greenhouse to their garden. Greenhouses help you to garden all year long and provide protection for your plants. They can also be an attractive structure to add to your garden. They come in all shapes, sizes and styles so you can find one that suits you. A greenhouse doesn’t have to be huge, and you can easily select a small one if you’re short on space. You can also attach a lean-to greenhouse to the wall of your home, which can help to save space too.
An arbour seat makes a cute addition to any garden, but especially more traditional spaces. These benches have an arch or shelter over them, offering you shelter from the sun or perhaps the wind and rain. Some of them are a bit like a sweet bus stop shelter you can have in your home. If you want to create a private corner where you can hide away, an arbour is an excellent choice.
Adding a solid structure to your garden could make it a more dynamic space. Add to the landscape by choosing a useful and beautiful structure.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
