Adding character to your garden can help you to create a space that is fun and relaxing for the whole family and give you a space that you enjoy spending time in, no matter the weather.

When designing or updating your outdoor space, looking for a way to make it interesting can help you design a unique space that is based on your personality and your family life.

Read on for some fun ways to add character to your garden.


Have you ever been to someone's house and they have a statue in their garden? Statues can instantly add an extra dimension to your garden, and there are a range of designs and materials to choose from, from granite statues to marble and bronze ones; what you choose is up to you. But if you want to add some permanence to your yard and give it a talking point, then investing in statues is the way to go.

Choose an animal, religious figure, miniature buildings, or simple pillars and place them strategically around your outdoor space to compliment your landscaping. 


Plants are an excellent addition to any yard, and adding them to trelliage around the structures in your garden can be a different way to bring color and life into the landscaping without having to add planters or create flower beds. Ideal for gardens of all sizes but particularly useful for smaller spaces, a trellis can be hung on external walls, fences, sheds, and other surfaces for climbing plants.

In fact, a nice trellis doesn't actually even need plants; you can choose a design that is impactful on its own and can be simply hung up without the need for any plants.


Structures for your garden can come in the form of sheds, summerhouses, arches, obelisks, pergolas, or awnings.

They can add a focal point and definition and give you dedicated areas to sit and relax, eat, or add to the scenery. But more than this, they can actually be functional additions, too. Obelisks can add height or support to your trailing plants, pergolas can provide shade from the elements, and awnings are excellent for adding shade and providing protection from the rain.

How Can Vertical Garden Planters Help Add Character to My Backyard?

Enhance your backyard with top vertical garden planters. These stylish and space-saving planters can add a unique and charming touch to your outdoor space. Whether you want to create a vibrant floral display or grow your own herbs and vegetables, vertical garden planters can help you achieve a beautiful and functional backyard oasis.


Lighting is a great way to add character to your garden because it can be utilized and implemented in many different styles, designs, colors, and fittings. Garden lighting is practical, but how you add lighting can make all the difference.

You can choose fun string lights to add to fences, structures, or seating areas, drape Edison bulbs from pergolas, add light-up ornaments, floor lighting, or anything you choose. It can be understated to give off a sleek, modern vibe, or you can choose fun and quirky that really livens things up after dark. Plus, in many cases, your lighting will serve as great ornamental pieces during daylight, too.

There are so many ways you can add character to your garden. From simply adding a lick of colorful paint to your fencing or walls to using any of the tips mentioned in this post, let your imagination run free and see what you can do to complement your existing landscape and put your mark on your garden.
