Life begins with an open and unlimited imagination. We invite you see with your imagination Ė and give yourself permission to believe what you see. The world is alive, Fairies are real, and they peek out at us from every Earth place that remembers the wild. Let the Fairies take your imagination by the hand and lead you to the threshold. On the other side, there is magic.

Welcome to Fairy Home and Garden ideas, where you'll find photos and descriptions of Fairy habitats designed with Fairy Woodland creations. Some were devised by the Fairy Woodland crew, others by our endlessly imaginative customers who sent pictures.
We'd love to post pictures and descriptions of your projects. Just email them to Be sure to include brief descriptions, any identifying info you'd like us to include (like "Susan from Kentucky") and your permission for us to use what you send on the website.


These can be indoor or outdoor, depending on the plantings you decide to use.

This habitat was created using a 22 in (?) oval bonsai pot, a Fairy House with aprox 6 X 6 in base and a pond with waterwheel. The trees are both from bonsai stock: a carokia and a pine of some kind (sorry, I don't remember!). Other plants are irish moss, elfin thyme, and heather. Bridget Wolfe

I created this habitat in the spring of 2003, just before we moved to Oregon, for the Carol Duvall show segment filmed for HGTV. I went to the nursery, saw this amazing plant, and fell in love. In the move, I lost the ID info on the plant and have been trying to identify it again ever since. Does anyone know what this spectacular plant is? 

This wild and enchanted habitat was created by a collector of Fairy Woodland homes in Long Beach, CA.


A Fairy House on a tree mounted base, a bird barn, with a connecting bridge. All elements created by John Crawford for a garden in Santa Monica Canyon, Santa Monica, CA.

A Fairy Village in a garden in Long Beach, CA. The creators of this habitat used rounds from a downed tree as bases and added fairy figurines and angels to habitat.

Another example from the Long Beach garden. Note that there's a comfy chair outside the front door for the resident Fairy to sit and enjoy the garden.

The log base theme is continued in a corner garden where Fairy Houses are hidden behind colorful azaleas to create a secret hideaway.

This Hobbitat habitat was created at Woodland Springs, the home of Fairy Woodland. Bridget dug a space for it in a small hill in a Douglas Fir grove and topped it with Irish moss. The steps leading up the hill are flat ocean tumbled stones, the moss on the hill is native. The mailbox at the base of the hill creates a delightful sense of reality.


. . . can be placed almost anywhere but down low in the garden, slightly hidden by foliage, where it's most easily spotted by little people is our favorite. Build steps and a walkway to the door, and you've created a cozy hideaway to enchant Fairies as well as children of all ages.

But don't forget that Fairies can just as easily live inside walls, fenceposts or anywhere you can put a door and window. After all, these are gateways you're creating, places where the Fairies can transition from their realm to ours. All they need is a door to open.

The habitat below is in Del Mar, CA where it enchants grandchildren and adults alike.
