Set your garden design apart with charming implements and lovely detail. Here's how...
Consider integrating some container plants in your garden landscape. To keep it interesting and fresh use containers with distinct designs that will suit the overall themeof your garden. Colorful pots evoke a youthful and carefree vibe while repurposed items give it an old school charm. Some examples of reusable items include an old wheelbarrow, a basket or a printed watering can. All of these can make for one-of-a-kind accents in your garden.
When it comes to complementing your landscaped garden you could mix it up by grouping three container plants or playing with different heights for interest.
Don’t forget lighting in your garden design, as it shines new light (literally) and provides ambiance. Lanterns are all-time favorites for a charming garden, but you may also go for some unexpected lighting options. Repurpose mason jars or wine bottles as lighting fixtures for a quirky and unique appeal, and be sure to use warm white lighting for a cheery atmosphere.
Gardens with seating or dining areas may employ interesting upholstery. Choose vibrant colors and fun patterns to boost your garden’s style and don’t forget to choose outdoor fabrics for durability and long-lasting appeal. Upholstery and other fabrics provide a soft addition to the rough outdoor setting so go for decorative pillows or beautiful tablecloths.
Add stylish finishing details to complete your quaint garden. Implement coffee tabletops with colorful trays and fresh flowers or candleholders and lanterns for great centerpieces in dining areas. Punctuate seating areas with container plants on the ground beside sofas and armchairs. Integrate quaint sculptures and garden gnomes in your landscape for a charming look.
