Create a Magical, Fairytale Garden for Your Home

Finding inspiration for your garden can be tricky. You want it to be usable, while also feeling creative. If you have kids, or you just want to tap into your childish side, taking inspiration from fairytales and magic is a great idea. Many of us go looking for fairies or gnomes in the garden when we're little, so why not bring them into your home? You can create a magical land in your own backyard with some fun inspiration from fairy tales, legends and mythical beasts. It could be fun for both children and adults, and an interesting way to design your garden.

Build a Fantastical Structure

A fun place where the kids can hide and even adults might be able to squeeze in can give your garden a standout feature. One idea is to build a treehouse, which could be anything from a castle to a pirate ship. If you have a suitable tree or two, you could create an incredibly fun space where the kids can explore and play. A treehouse isn't the only option though. How about a little hobbit hole that provides a comfortable den to relax in? Or perhaps a castle or playhouse that stands on its own. Even a gazebo or a little cabin or shed could be made to look like a fairytale location.


Light It Up

The right lights can do an awful lot for your fairytale garden. They can give your garden a magical quality, so it's not just dark at night. You could start with something simple, like a string of solar-powered lights through a tree or bush. But if you want to do something more sophisticated, a company like Allen Outdoor Solutions can help with permanent outdoor lighting. As well as creating a magical garden that you can use once the sun has gone down, you can improve the security of your home and make your garden safer.

Create a Mini World

If you have ever searched for fairies at the bottom of the garden, creating a mini world in your backyard is a fun idea. You can add tiny features that make it look like miniature creatures are living around your home. For an easy, readymade way to do it, you can use doll's house furniture or other miniatures. It's also easy to find mini plant pots or small plants, as well as use bird houses. If you're particularly crafty, you can make your own items too.

Introduce Fairytale Creatures

You might just stick to having some fairytale homes, but you can also dot some magical creatures around your garden. If you feel like a lot of the fairy or gnome ornaments you usually get are a bit cheesy, have a look around to see what else you can find. While some things might look a bit cheap for the look you want, others will help to give your garden a fun but sophisticated look.


Create a fairytale garden for your home if you want a fun space that you can enjoy every day. Adults and children alike can benefit from a creative outdoor space.

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
