1.    Living Sculptures

You can use trees to create very beautiful and expressive art in the form of sculptures. If you intend to sculpt the art yourself, you get to enjoy so many benefits both personally and in your environment.

It makes your mind hyperactive, strengthens your muscles, improves your manual dexterity and creativity, helps you to express yourself and encourages resilience.

You may not know this, but having art sculptures in your garden gives you and your visitors good visual feelings and psychological experience.

2.    Woodland Retreat

Planting trees in your garden creates a cool shade for you when they mature especially if the sun is high. It can also create a secluded spot for those who need a quiet, airy place to meditate or read.

Adding a tree to your garden design also helps to create natural stone pathways for people.

3.    Edible Adventure

Depending on the tree you choose to plant, you can have access to fruits, nuts and/or grapes. Imagine you have a lovely garden with beautiful composite decking products, lovely alfresco furniture and planting a tree that gives you access to fresh fruits and still gives you the adventure of climbing them.

With these fresh fruits, you can make smoothies, fruit juices and even wine (for grapes). This shows that planting trees directly or indirectly contributes to your healthy eating.

4.    Vertical Oasis

Having a garden means that you will have a variety of plant life including climbing plants and herbs. Trees help to serve as a vertical support where your climbing plants and herbs can attach themselves as they grow.

Continuously, it adds to the visual appeal of your garden by providing a backdrop view.

5.    Sustainable Sanctuary

If the innovative idea that you are going for is to provide habitat for wildlife, then it is suggested that you go for native trees such as English oak, Common lime, Elder, Hawthorn, Guelder rose, Dogwood, Silver birch, Blackthorn, etc.

To save or optimise the use of water, you can consider having a rain garden and water-wise plants.

6.    The Playful Perch

Did you have a treehouse when you were little or have you ever seen a treehouse before? Having a treehouse gives children so much joy and allows them to have an enjoyable childhood.

If you have a mature tree in your garden, you can build a treehouse for the children. Even without a treehouse, people can have fun climbing a mature tree or playing beneath it.

 

7.    Glowing Grove

You can use lights to decorate mature trees in your garden, giving it a kind of magical nighttime atmosphere. Illuminating your trees also has functionality because it lights up your pathway so that you can see at night.

With the right tree and strategically placed lights, you not only have an aesthetically pleasing glow up but you have a means to light up your path.

8.    Multi-Level Magic

You can use trees to create a tiered garden design for your garden. This is mostly suitable for homes built on hills as it can increase the value of the property.

To perfectly create a tiered garden, you can use raised beds, incorporate curves, go for tiered planters, build a retaining wall, or use trees.

9.    The Living Room in the Leaves

You can get further creative with your garden renovation. When you have a mature tree, you can create a seating area under the tree where you can sit and have your private time or entertain guests.

If you love natural air, you can even have little naps under the tree and if you properly fumigate, you can even prevent insects from climbing your body.

10. The Eco-Pond Paradise

We are all for ecosystem and sustainability now, aren’t we? So, you can create a pond or water fountain and plant trees around it to provide shade.

This design gives the garden a beautiful look and contributes majorly to the ecosystem.
