If you care about fashion, chances are you also care about your interior design. With furniture being at the center stage, it is important to combine it with pieces of art, plants, and other accessories. Creating this blend is what makes a home feel like home. The same principle should be brought to the garden, which is an extension of your home. As a fashionable person, it makes sense to take this to the next level. But, how to do so?
Leverage experience from social media
Interior designers can help you with selecting plants for your home, but when it comes to the garden, social media is still king. When it comes to garden experts, they are often focused on creating the right symmetries and shapes but are less likely to create the right balance between fashionable components. When browsing social media, you can learn from other people what works and what does not. More specifically, you can test what you think is the right way to set up the garden.
Fashion comes and goes: what about the garden
As we all know, fashion is merely a temporary thing. If you are designing your garden, you should take this into account. Work with several “fixed” components that are timeless and can remain and make it possible to experiment with other means. For example, keep some nice plants at the center stage and replace flowers once in a while to suit the new trends. This approach makes it possible to maintain a trendy garden while limiting the effort required to maintain and change it.
Combination of plants and flowers
Although plants should be the foundation of the garden, do not forget to plant flower bulbs. These make a great addition to a fashionable garden: they are durable and truly express different colours that come back in your home and other elements. Flower bulbs are easy to plant and maintain, making them a favourable addition among many gardeners. You can use social media and blogs to find out which flower bulbs suit your needs.
Ranging from Zen garden to tropical styles
The right combination of plants and flowers can be anything ranging from the minimalist Zen garden to the tropical styles including palm trees. Be aware of the style that you are selecting. Combining different styles can be tricky in a single garden. If you desire to blend different styles, try to use different areas of the garden to do so. This will make the transition more natural and will benefit the overall experience of the garden.
Creating a fashionable garden is not only about the furniture you place on the patio. Try to find the right styles, combine them with caution and make sure to blend fixed and changeable components to adjust to the latest trends. This will help you create a fashionable garden that lasts!
