Lovely metal art!

We live on a canal in Florida, so wanted to use these sculptures on my mantle in the sun room overlooking the water where we see these majestic birds (live) every day. Very happy with the quality and substantial weight! Now to get a nature picture to replace the flowers!

Cute Bear family

Good substance to the piece. Adorable features.

sun, moon, stars by the pool...

Got tired watching, even after caring for them, plants dying by the pool and where once hung a plant I now have the very lovely copper colored sun, moon and stars....

An Excellent Gift Purchase

This order was a Christmas gift for a family member. She absolutely loved it and hung it up the next day in her backyard, even while it was snowing. The birdhouse was exactly as expected and the transaction/delivery went 100% smoothly. I would highly recommend others invest in this product if interested, and I thank Happy Gardens for a quick and easy order process!

Cute Family of Bears

Cute little family of bears! My reason for 4 stars is the big bear had several strings of glue trailing around the bear that had to be removed. But they pulled off easily and now Papa Bear is perfect. This bear family is just right!

Quick and Easy Garden Ideas: Design the Perfect Flower Bed

Posted by Happy Gardens on

Looking for easy flower bed ideas? While we can’t do the digging, install pretty stone borders, or decide which perennials to include in your landscape, we can help you design the perfect flower bed, complete with attractive accents that keep your lawn or garden looking its best even when flowers aren’t in bloom.

Whether your garden has lots of room for lush lavender and large rose bushes, or if most of your plants live in containers, you’ll find that a simple water feature such as a fountain or bird bath makes a wonderful focal point. Plan to place larger plants behind the water feature, and consider adding medium-sized ones to each side. Our 2-tier flamed bird bath has room for a pot underneath, so you can add even more interest.

A butterfly garden attracts beneficial pollinators, who help your plants thrive in return for some sweet nectar. As you make your plans, consider which plants are best for butterflies that live in your area.

Some versatile options include alyssum, bee balm, calendula, and of course butterfly bush! Place the tallest plants in the back, and the smallest in front. Be sure that you give each plant plenty of room to thrive, particularly if you’re adding perennials such as Black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia) or Coneflower (Echinacea). With the right perennials and just a little bit of maintenance, your butterfly garden will return year after year!

What if watering isn’t your favorite thing to do? Don’t worry – you can still enjoy a beautiful landscape, complete with flowers. Consider a rock garden with a few drought-tolerant plants, focusing on perennials that thrive in your area. Russian sage, Rosemary, and some Lavender varieties work well in most USDA zones. As easy garden ideas go, this one is among the best: just a few of these plants will add color and fragrance without requiring much maintenance.

Simple sculptures such as our rock cairns go a long way toward heightening visual interest. Consider grouping decorative elements in clusters of three or more, and keep in mind that odd-numbered groupings tend to look most pleasing to the eye.

Flower bed designs don’t have to be complicated! Try one for yourself and don’t be surprised if you find yourself looking for opportunities to expand your landscape.
