How to create a romantic garden

Different gardens have different personalities which come alive through their varying plant layouts, flower choices and plants, and other accessories and additions.One mood you may adapt in your garden is the idea of romance, privacy and subtle allure. 

A romantic garden should impart a sense of mystery. You may achieve this by incorporating entrances and subtle dividers to your garden.

Entrances and dividers

A romantic garden should impart a sense of mystery. You may achieve this by incorporating entrances and subtle dividers to your garden. Allow plants to peek through from the garden side as a preview of your beautiful garden landscape. Choose an alluring door with an intricate door handle and lock for that ‘secret garden’ feel.

Meandering paths

Set a romantic mood with soft, curving paths. Allow your guests to experience your garden one portion at a time. This builds a sense of mystery and excitement for what lies round the next corner. Arches and trellises over a part of the path lend romance and texture overhead. Create pockets of plants and seating areas along the path to admire the lush landscape. A romantic bench for two can be a cozy addition to your garden. 

Soft palette of plants

Choose plants with soft textures to further evoke the romantic mood. Opt for soft foliage and blooms such as roses. Layer plants along the path and vary the height and texture per layer for visual appeal. A pastel color scheme consisting of pinks and lavenders is best for a romantic garden. Steer clear of overly bright hues. 

English accents

A garden style that best reflects romance and allure is the English garden. Take inspiration from the English style and employ elements such as a gazebo or a classical statue. This primarily depends on how much space you have in your garden. A gazebo will be more functional than a statue, but a statue would work well with smaller gardens. You may also choose to add a water fountain or a gently curved pond as a focal point.
