Creating a fairy garden is easier than you think. The most important element to fairy gardening is to believe in the magic of fairies. With a little heartfelt magic you'll create an enchanted one of kind fairy garden.
A fairy garden can be any size or shape ranging from sprawling gardens to a tiny flower pot. The main ingredients you need to create a fairy garden? Imagination, creativity and a pinch of time and you'll have a mesmerizing unique fairy garden before you know it.
Fairy Garden Location - Location is everything in the real estate market even in the miniature world! In planning your fairy garden select a location to take advantage of the natural elements of your garden. Many miniature plants and delicate miniatures require protection from the elements and garden travelers. Take advantage of your natural landscape and create your fairy garden in the shade of a tree or nestle against hills, rock outcroppings, stumps etc. to protect your fairy gardens from both the elements and wandering feet.
You can also create your fairy gardens in flower pots and raised containers to provide miniature portable fairy gardens that provide great protection. Any container can be transformed into an enchanted fairy garden. Use flower pots, raised terracotta saucers, bowls, garden carts, and virtually any discarded material to create a magical one of kind fairy garden.
Fairy Garden Construction - Let your imagination run free when you are creating your miniature fairy garden. You may find it useful to segment an area for your fairy gardens with garden borders, miniature fencing or even river rock.
During construction you can add rolling hills or even miniature ponds to your fairy garden projects. Visit our fairy garden blog to see the construction of one of our miniature ponds. Use hills or natural rises to create the illusion of depth and dimensions in your fairy gardens.
