Real-Life Fairy Garden: How to Create a Truly Magical Backyard

Your backyard holds the potential to be anything you want it to be, including a real-life fairy garden. Fill your backyard with old-fashioned flowers, miniature abodes, as well as other ideas to make your backyard a mystical place for fairies to call home.

First, Arrange Rocks and Wood Stumps Into Natural Crevices

Fairies are attracted to the rocky slopes of the forest. Recreating this type of environment is sure to attract fairies. Nestling miniature cottages and homes amongst these nooks and crannies will certainly be appreciated by the fairies. You can build these tiny houses yourself, or buy them pre-made. However, lovingly building little fairy houses yourself will imbue the abodes with good vibes that fairies thrive on.

Plant Old-Fashioned Flowers With Wild Abandon

One thing that fairies love above all else is flowers. Purple coneflower, pansies, lily of the valley, and petunias are fairy favorites. Your fairy friends will also appreciate moss, mushrooms, and ferns; these are reminiscent of the fairy’s natural woodland environment. In any case, any fairy garden needs flowers and plenty of them.

Dig a Well

If you must have a well drilled in your backyard, it can be used to attract fairies. For this you will want to find well drilling services to help you out. It’s well-known that fairies frequent streams and ponds, making your well a fairy magnet. As well as supplying your home with water, your well can also feed a fish pond with a small waterfall. Be sure to line it with moss-covered rocks, which are pleasing to fairies.

In keeping with the fairy garden theme, design your well house as a miniature cottage. Be sure to plant plenty of old-fashioned flowers around it for the full effect.

Fairy Lights

Solar-powered string lights turn your fairy garden into a mystical, magical world once the sun goes down. But, string lights are not the only option. You can also find solar lights that look like mushrooms, fireflies, and flowers. Solar-powered lights will not add anything to your electric bill, but will certainly add a magical touch to your backyard fairy garden.

Create a Private Nook

You need a place to sit to enjoy your fairy garden. A rose or ivy-covered arbor by the pond is one idea. If you sit very quietly, perhaps you’ll even see a fairy.

There are dozens of ways to turn your backyard into a real-life fairy garden. What’s most important is that it not only attracts fairies but also reflects your spirit and personality.
