For example, wood is a light and affordable material from which whole masterpieces can be built. The main thing is to treat the wood with an antifungal agent or paint so that the compositions remain presentable for a long time. Some make neat sides for the beds from wooden boards, in the form of formwork. From the outside, structures are painted in a bright color, although you can leave the tree in its natural form.
In addition to boards, the beds can be decorated with bumpers woven from vines, slate, blocks, artificial stone or brickwork. For example, you can collect stones of various sizes and shapes, they can be painted in different colors, you can draw vegetables, flowers, fruits on them, in general, any simple but bright pictures. Such stones can decorate the beds or frame the path.

Usually the back of the garden is neglected and unadorned. To avoid such a situation, it is worth attaching frames with pictures or photos, shelves or pots of flowers to a fence or blank wall.
Tin cans should be used as flowerpots, painting them in different colors or choosing one tone that best suits the garden style (it is better to take cans of the same size and volume).
Homemade pots should be hooked up with a chain or rope. If the wall or fence is made of wood, then you will need to hammer in an ordinary nail, and if it is a concrete structure, then dowels and a perforator will be required.
