Your backyard garden is an extension of your home, and the design should reflect your personal style. The addition of accent pieces and accessories can easily dress up any garden and create continuity between your indoor and outdoor spaces. Unique garden signage is one way to inject personality into your flower or vegetable garden.
Garden signs with quotations about gardening or outdoor life fit perfectly in the garden setting. Choose quotes that reflect your personal feelings about gardening, whether you garden for pleasure, sustainability or landscaping purposes. You may find it appropriate to choose quotes specific to a type of vegetable or flower predominant in your garden. Find quotes in magazines, gardening books or online databases. If you have any of your own funny, inspirational or profound thoughts on gardening, feel free to quote yourself on a sign. Paint your favourite quotes on large wooden signs and place them near your garden entrance and other focal points.
Street-themed signage is a clever way to decorate a large garden, especially one with rows of vegetables. This style of signage can add ambience and serve as labels for your plants. Place signs at the ends of garden rows to describe the flowers or vegetables planted nearby. For example, label the row with cauliflowers Cauliflower Way or name the radish area Radish Road. You can be even more creative by using the specific vegetable variety name, such as Burpless Boulevard for the cucumber variety. Multiple pointing signs attached to posts throughout the garden will create a village atmosphere.
Create country garden appeal with signs written in a foreign language. Simple phrases, such as "welcome to my garden" can be translated to create charming foreign garden signage. French is a popular language choice to create a cottage garden atmosphere, but you may choose any language that appeals to your tastes. Consider using an online translator to convert English words, such as "flowers" and "vegetables," to different languages to see what languages appeal to you. If the European cottage garden is your theme of choice, be ambitious and translate full quotations to another language.
