What are Fairy Gardens?
Fairy Garden Ideas
One popular idea is to build a woodland fairy garden. These miniture gardens are normally installed at the foot of a tree in a shaded part of the garden and incorporate forest themed items like tree leaves and a door on the trunk of the tree.
Other fairy garden ideas include a flower fairy garden. In a flower fairy garden, you can expect to find a small cottage surrounded by flowers and grass with perhaps other miniature fairy garden decor added.
One other fairy garden idea is to convert the edge of a water feature in your garden to a fairy dock. A small boat or raft tacked to the edge of your water feature with other fairy garden decor “clues” to indicate that the wee folk have come to live on your shores.
Really, fairy garden ideas are only limited by your own imagination. Have fun with it.
Fairy Garden Designs
Building a fairy garden right into your existing garden allows for the feeling that your miniature fairy garden is the genuine thing, that an actual fairy has moved right into your garden. The down side of fairy gardens placed right into the garden is that the elements will eventually destroy the fairy garden decor you put in the garden. Also, it may be harder for others to enjoy the fairy garden if it is not readily accessible.
Many people choose to build their fairy gardens in large containers. This method allows the garden to be moved out of inclement weather and to also be enjoyed from wherever in the garden you choose. The down side of a container fairy garden is that it does not contain quite the same mystique as a fairy garden hidden in your own garden.
