Helpful Tips for Designing a Shingletown Fairy Garden


 
Gardening
“Bonk!” Did you hear that? It is the sound of an acorn on the fairy house rooftop. In the fall, acorns drop from the trees and roll down the shingled roofs, making the most satisfying little noises. It is almost as if teeny-tiny fairies are tap-dancing up there. Could it be? Maybe!

Okay, okay, so there may not be acorns raining down on the miniature garden, but a shingled rooftop on a fairy house can create an entire world of sights, sounds, and style. The Shingletown Miniature Houses have an entirely unique look. Instead of thatched roofs, stones, or other popular styles, these fairy houses are constructed with cedar shake-style roofs.

What is a Cedar Shake Roof?

Even if you spend plenty of time in the miniature garden, backyard, or other DIY space, you may not have encountered cedar shake roofing. These roofs use wood shingles made from split logs. The shingles come in different lengths and thicknesses, giving the entire roof a distinctive, homemade look. Cedar roofs are exceptionally beautiful, durable, and even energy efficient. They have been popular in North America since the colonial era. Houses roofed with cedar “shakes” or shingles split along the cedar wood grain, have an historic appearance that might call to mind a mountain cabin, a lake house, a home constructed with one’s hands, or simply a miniature house built long, long ago.

This aged, handmade appearance is what makes Shingletown Miniature Houses so special. They are designed with incredible attention to detail, even down to multicolored shakes in varying sizes that look just like the “real thing.” Some, like the Shingletown Cone Top Fairy House, have walls that look like stone. Even though the cone-shaped roof is made of durable polyresin, the entire structure looks like it may have been constructed by industrious fairies from the nearby fairy woodland.

Styling a Shingletown Fairy House

After you have chosen some miniature houses from the Shingletown line, or even some in a similar style, you might want to create a woodland-themed miniature garden to set the scene. Whether you are building your fairy garden in a container or directly in the garden soil, you can decorate around the buildings with moss, which comes in a variety of attractive shades. Fairy Mulch and Fairy Garden Rock can help you create paths and riverbeds throughout the fairy garden.

Other thematic additions could include leafy greenery, a babbling creek, a stone pathway, and even an old-fashioned wishing well. Small woodland creatures can populate your miniature garden alongside fairy friends. Colorful birds, cuddly rabbits, and the occasional sly fox make a woodland escape feel like home. As you plan your timberland or mountain-style miniature garden, consider adding other natural, unfinished, or wooden-looking miniature accessories to provide a cozy and rustic look. .

If you enjoy the mystical side of life, your fairy garden might be the place for the Shingletown Wizard House, with its roof that is reminiscent of a witch’s hat, or the Shingletown Castle, with a pointed turret that sets the stage for all kinds of medieval and mystical adventures. A wooden bridge over the creek would look fit for royalty, especially if a few horses stood at the ready nearby. Whichever way you choose to style your Shingletown miniature garden, it is sure to be a hit with fairies and humans alike.

Miniature Gardening offers a variety of accessories, fairies, miniature houses, garden tools and furniture to create enchanting miniature landscapes. Miniature trees from 'Miniature Gardening' are an exclusive collection of plants for mini gardens or fairy gardens. If you are looking for mini garden accessories visit www.miniature-gardening.com.
