How to Landscape Around a Wishing Well

Desired fountain goes back to the Roman-British and Celtic mythology, although this ritual still surrounds many secrets. In modern society, countless people, whether superstitious or just little luck, offer coins in the depths of the desired fountain, in the hope of fulfilling a wish in return. You can bring this old tradition to your home garden by using a decorative desired fountain to decorate it and maybe bring a little luck to your garden. Without the deep pit of working fountains, you can use the inside of the desired fountain and the surrounding garden room to inspire your landscape design.

Create a flower bed that surrounds the desired fountain and follow the shape of the desired fountain to form the design. For example, you can surround a round desired fountain with a round flower bed; Add a square flower bed around a square desired fountain; If you want to add some geometric variety to your design, use different shapes, e.g. B. a square flower bed around a round desired fountain.

Plant short flowers and ground cover into the flower bed that surrounds the desired fountain. Although you can plant higher plants, the choice of shorter plants ensures that the desired fountain is clearly visible and the plants simply emphasize the feature. If you want to include some larger plants, plant them a few meters from the desired fountain so that the height sets accents without hiding the desired fountain.

Plant climbing plants around the desired fountain and train the vines so that they grow at the desired fountain. Choose flowering vines such as splendid winds (ipomoea spp.) And star jasmine (trachelospermum jasminoides) or non-flowering vines such as Aralia-Feu (Fatshedera Lize) and creeping coward (Ficus Pumila).

Create a butterfly garden for the desired fountain and choose larval plants to feed caterpillars, and nectar plants to feed butterflies. The nectar plants include butterfly shrub (Buddleia Globosa), California Rosskastanie (Aesculus Californica), convertible florets (Lantana spp.) And iron herb (verbena spp.). The larval plants include asters (aster spp.), California pipe tendril (Aristolochia Californica), Löwenmäulchen (AntiRrhinum Majus) and Passion vine (Passiflora Spp.). Many other plants also attract butterflies, many of which serve as larvae and nectar plants.

Limit the flower bed with river stones, bricks or polyvinyl landscape frames to define the flower bed and separate the desired fountain from the lawn. Choose an edge material that is tailored to the desired fountain.

Place a potted plant in the desired fountain bucket; You can buy a hanging basket and remove the clothes hanger. You can also use the fountain as a large raised bed for the garden.

Install a stone path that leads to the desired fountain so that you have access to the fountain without damaging lawn. You can lay flat stone slabs for a simple sidewalk from steps or dig out the area to install a formal sidewalk made of paving stones.

In addition to the desired fountain, set up a garden bench, which serves as a decoration as well as a place to relax and enjoy the desired fountain. This step works best for large desired fountains and not for the small decorative desired fountain, which are usually sold in garden centers.
