More of us are taking home life outside nowadays. Garden styling comes from the concept of gardens as outdoor rooms. No longer is the garden the home of veg, fruit and flowers only. This is why, in the words of this Houzz article, ‘we’re borrowing more styling tricks from inside’.
Garden styling builds on interior design. It brings indoor techniques outside. Small touches render our gardens more inviting, more welcoming, more comfortable.
Tweaking rather than complete overhauls are the name of the game in garden styling.
But what are these small touches?
A few tweaks can go a long way in garden styling; to name but a few:
- Cushions and upholstery
- Candles and candleholders
- Repetitive planting
- Knockout planters
- Updated garden furniture
- Refreshed planting
Which spaces benefit most from garden styling?
Any part of our garden might benefit from a touch of garden styling now and then. However, certain spaces definitely fall into the trap of becoming tired and dated more readily. Below are some examples:
- More mature borders
- Seating/social spaces
- Neglected containers
- Front gardens
Different garden styles
Garden styling can range from smaller changes to large-scale landscaping, although it’s usually the former.
Whichever route you go down, here at Bestall & Co we can help direct you towards the design elements you have in mind:
- Cottage garden
- Middle Eastern
We can support you in fitting your home into its local landscape, or in bringing a touch of the “exotic” to your property.
