Landscaping your garden plot, I want to make it as comfortable and beautiful as possible. Various landscaping techniques are used: various flower beds, alpine slides, ponds, waterfalls, as well as sculptures and various decorative compositions. Such a lovely detail, like an ornamental mill, looks adorable against a background of grass and water.
The decorative mill serves as an ornament of a garden, gives to a site a rural charm, gives feeling of tranquility, decorates a landscape. But with all its underlined decorativeness, the building can carry a functional load. For example, you can use it to hide those parts of the garden and communications that spoil it with its appearance - the mill can disguise the ugly hatch, valves and other urban details that do not fit into idyllic picture of the garden.
A decorative mill made of wood or stone can be of different heights - from 30 cm to a two-meter design, in which several adults can fit. Of course, here it is necessary to take into account, first of all, the size of the plot - on six acres it is unlikely that a large, not too functional building would be appropriate. There are also so large wooden decorative specimens that inside them you can even arrange a small gazebo for relaxing. Thus, the design can be both decoration and useful construction.
Not too large copy can be used as a convenient place to store inventory. So, elegant building with blades can replace an ugly barn.
Decorative water mill will be best to look at the shore of a pond or stream. A small decorative waterfall or cascade is also suitable as a background for such a building. In this area, you can place a recreation area in order to relax in the evenings, looking at the water and spinning wings of the mill.
Decorative windmill can be wind, water or only for beauty - with non-rotating blades - these are most often small souvenir specimens. Both species can be placed both near the reservoir and in quiet corners. It is important to choose the right size of the mill, so as not to spoil the appearance of the infield.
The decorative garden mill can be an excellent children's playhouse. Many people know how important it is for children to have their own "shelter" where they can manage a little. The main thing is if you use the structure for children's games - make sure that the structure is stable enough and will not accidentally tip over.
Some useful recommendations for more harmonious inclusion of a decorative mill in landscape design of a garden and giving.
Experienced decorators advise to buy copies, stylized "antique" or independently handle a new design with a special aging structure. Such a retro look will give the mill and the surrounding piece of land a truly ancient "spirit" and will bring peace of mind.
