7 Ideas that will give your garden a whimsical touch
1. Define garden pathways and borders
You can define your garden borders with an accenting transition. It’s pretty simple. Let’s look into the elements that you may use to edge:
- Decorative rocks
- Attractive fences
- Low-growing shrubs
- Arches, etc.
With these elements, you may edge your pathways, and in-ground and around your flower beds.
Do you already have a patio installed? You may edge it to be the center of attraction in your entire garden. These elements work even better if you want to create an inviting entrance.
Pro Tip: If you want to make it look more interesting and done, try putting some stepping stones between your garden beds.
(Smaller details make bigger differences.)
2. Wonderful water features
Your garden looks incomplete without a water feature. This feature serves as a soothing sound with natural flowing movement. Moreover, won’t you just love to offer a lifeline to pollinators and wildlife?
Relax, because we are not talking about a lake here. In fact, your water feature can be as simple as a birdbath. If you want to create an enhance whimsical statement, a fountain or elaborate waterfall, or pond will do the work. Adding some pieces of large stones would be great for small birds, beads, or lizards.
It’s water! So, are you concerned about mosquitoes? Remember that they can only breed in still water. So, you shouldn’t worry about running a fountain. In the case of a bird bath, changing the water after every three days will do.
3. Build relaxing spots
Adding seating areas will create interest and personality in your garden. If you love to often arrange gatherings and entertainment a pair of lounge chairs will do the job. Arrange them around your fire pit to make it extra functional.
Do you often dine outdoors? Now you can create your own with Prime Landscapers. We can build a grill section with a set of tables and chairs. Even the most basic garden design should have a small bistro set or a bench.
4. Illuminate your garden
Let the evening knock at your door and start to slowly stroll across your garden. A string of lights would make you feel downright magical. Add flickering tiki torches to have the vibe of a real flame.
Do you like trellises in your garden? We have adorned arched trellises with fairy string lights in the past. We just cannot express how wonderful they look. A pack of bistro lights is even more fun when you know to add it. We install them mostly in overhead functional areas that make spaces bright and entertaining.
5. Blend texture & materials
Use multiple ground covers, plant textures, and hardscaping materials to balance your garden. You can even play with height to add extra interest. For example, we build a combination of in-ground planting and raised bed areas in the past.
Any idea on how to incorporate materials with shapes? Try to incorporate round stones, dramatic tree stumps, wine barrel planters, curved lines, large boulders, and potted plants. Such features soften any garden space. For example, combine wood chips and gravel nearby to create a blend of modern and classic.
A herringbone layout and U-shaped pattern are popular in the recent ideas of fun additions for garden.
Do you love perennial gardens? We can blend the following features enticingly into your garden:
- Add plants of multiple heights
- Plants with different leaf sizes or shapes
- Plants bloom at different times.
- Add flowy plants like ferns or ornamental grasses.

6. Adorn art with garden statues
Statues are a great way to create an elegant whimsical impression in your garden. The best way to start with a statue is to make your plan on what you exactly want. Are you planning on a whimsical fairy garden? Or do you want to relax and inspire? We can suggest different designs as per your taste.
Placing the garden statues, we surround them with plants to give a natural feel. But we choose the plants which do not really grow and obscure the statue. If you want a modern style then we may surround you with stones and gravel.
The best locations to place statues in the garden could be
- Near your walkways.
- Next to your water feature
- Across your patio and furniture
7. Stone pathways for rustic charm
Stone pathways are a great complement for whimsical cottage garden designs or natural gardens. You may choose your favorite stones from a wide range of designs. It is all a matter of taste and as such, any flat or wide stones will do. Most people choose flagstone for walkways than considering a specific kind of rock.
We’d rather advise choosing stones that are local to Buffalo.
And that’s how you make a Whimsical garden!
