If you have spent countless hours maintaining and working on your garden, you should find the best way to relax and enjoy the space. While you can create stunning effects with your choice of plants, pottery, lighting, furniture, decorations, and structures like gazebos and awnings, have you considered how an outdoor rug may enhance your garden spaces?
Wisely utilizing a rug in your garden space can create an oasis in your backyard.
Recycle Old Carpet and Rugs
While outdoor rugs are amazing as design elements, did you consider the ways you could put your old rugs and carpet to use outside? A small section of rug or carpet can provide support and padding for your knees when gardening in low places. You can recycle old carpeting in several ways for your garden, such as an underlayment for gravel or to line a new pond. One of the perks of using old carpet under gravel and similar spaces is that while it will prevent weeds from protruding out of your gravel, it will still allow water to drain, so you don’t have to worry about flooding. Old carpet and rugs made of 100% natural fibers like cotton, jute, or wool are biodegradable, so while they’ll last quite a long time, you won’t have to worry about them harming the environment.
Creating Amazing Seating Areas
Many people like to use their flowerbeds as part of their outdoor sitting areas, and choosing a rug that matches the color of your favorite flowers can create dramatic effects. With the right lighting and furniture, you can create truly memorable outdoor spaces in your garden.
Take some time to think about what type of outdoor rug would match perfectly with the flowers, plants, furniture, and other elements of your backyard design. Outdoor rugs are durable, versatile, and fit just about any layout or design scheme. Once you find the right outdoor rug you can enjoy the added comfort and more complete aesthetic of your garden space.
