18 DAZZLING WAYS TO GIVE YOUR GARDEN AN EXTRA DIMENSION

18 DAZZLING WAYS TO GIVE YOUR GARDEN AN EXTRA DIMENSION

As you will see from the picture this is all about using mirrors in the garden. If you fix a mirror to a wall or fence in a small garden you will immediately make it feel larger. Mirrors can also be used to shed light on a dark corner and for a slightly different approach gazing balls can be a real feature in the landscape. If you need some inspiration on how you could use a mirror in your garden then read this article I found on the Garden Lovers Club website.

Looking to expand a small garden space or patio? Trying to figure out a way to dress up a boring fence or shed wall without having to put in hours of work? Have you considered a mirror? No? We’re glad you are here!
Mirrors can be a great – and versatile – addition to a garden. They can help to create an illusion of space in a small garden or add a simple decoration. When well-placed, a mirror can create a secret window into another world or at least it can look like it does!
A mirror can brighten up a shaded corner with reflective light or enhance a visually stunning garden design. Think outside the box even and include mirrors in an unexpected way (we have some great examples!). Mirror balls are an easy way to incorporate a mirror into any garden design, but mirror fence – that’s unexpected!
We’ve gathered a collection of ideas to include mirrors in any garden space and we hope you find inspiration for your garden!

1. Antique Mirror


 
The aged look of this mirror is a great example of how to add character to your garden. A large mirror like this can help to showcase a plant or area and make the space appear larger. The rusted looking planters to either side of the mirror create a great balance of old and new against the lively green plants.

2. White Mirror

This white frame adds a touch of shabby chic to this garden space that complements the bench and floor lamp – seen reflected in the mirror. Including a large mirror and furniture in a cozy space like this can help to create a space that feels less like a garden and more like and extension of the house itself.

3. Mirrors On A Fence

Hanging large, thickly framed mirrors against a fence helps to give the illusion that the space is larger than it really is. The lattice work frames add a charming country touch to this patio area. Hanging them under a shaded area helps to balance the shadows cast on the fence.

4. Window Pane Mirror

Peeking out from behind climbing vines and bushes, this mirror looks more like a secret window into another section of the garden. This is a great idea for a whimsical fairy garden, creating a magical, mysterious corner in the garden. An old window pane can make a great outdoor mirror frame and can be found for relatively cheap prices at flea markets for a fun DIY project.
