Although it is tempting to scale down the garden features to avoid cluttering the space this will result in a muddle of insignificant elements that does the exact opposite. Including a single bold structure like a chunky pergola or a rendered blockwork wall around a seating area creates a sense of enclosure, introduces a touch of drama and holds focus inside the garden. Textured finishes like slate or pebble cladding can be used on courtyard walls to add interest and also stop the boundaries from becoming overbearing.
You can choose from different themes like, modern, classic, chic, or whatever suits your personality. There are different materials from stores that could fit your theme, for sure. As mentioned, time and interest is needed in designing your patio garden. If you did everything in a hurry, it would be noticed with the lack of alignment and organization. Before you start designing your patio garden, always think of a concept so that when you execute your design, you won’t take a long time deciding on how to fix everything and stuff. Organize everything and have your materials all set so you could start your flower garden designs already.
Using contrasting colours is another way to suggest that the garden extends beyond its actual boundaries. A pale wall with a door-sized rectangle painted in a darker colour framed by some climbers and planted pots looks like a passageway. Contrasting flower and foliage colours are also effective for creating interest, contrast, directing focus and adding the illusion of extra depth.
When there isn’t much ground area using the vertical space helps to provide more visual interest without cluttering the garden. Some ways of doing this include attaching planters to walls, hanging baskets and troughs from fence posts or mounting them along the top of fence panels.
