Proper drainage with a layer of pea gravel and several holes in the bottom of your container ensure your plants grow lush and happy. Small rocks and miniature furniture, pottery shards or kids toys can be used for adorning your miniature garden designs.
Fairy gardens are miniature garden designs with small details that give the appearance of tiny creatures living in the garden. Fairy houses with small fences, garden benches or small tables are whimsical items that bring the magic into miniature garden designs.
Before planting your miniature garden, place all of the garden decorations, furniture and plants on top of the soil. This is your chance to change the layout and experiment with various interesting and surprising arrangements. Once the overall miniature garden design is established, start planting your plants with the largest roots first. Small creeping plants are great for a border or edging.
You can decorate your miniature garden designs and Fairy gardens with small birdhouses, wooden pergolas, tiny gardening tools, a small vase or an old boot. Adding fairy houses, charming cottages, small tables and garden benches, pergolas and arbors enhance and beautify your Fairy gardens.
