Beginners Guide To Theming Your Garden

With summer just around the corner, it’s finally time to look forward to some long and warm days spent in the garden. Your garden might be looking a little neglected due to the winter we have just had, or you may just feel like something is amiss. Sometimes, all a garden needs is an established theme so that you can continue improving on it for many years to come. If you’re feeling like your garden is in a little need of tlc and a definite theme, here’s a beginners guide to theming your garden.

The first thing that you will need to establish is what kind of look that you’re going for. Some people opt for rustic looks, where others prefer a clean and modern look in their garden. Take some time to sit down and plan out a theme for your garden. A good idea is to match it with the room that leads out to your garden to make it a continuous theme throughout your whole property. 

Once you have decided what kind of look you want to go for in your garden, it’s time to think about colours. While different coloured plants won’t make a difference to the theme of your garden, other features will. If you’re looking for a patio area or even some paving slabs in your garden, consider Indian Sandstone paving slabs as they come in a wide range of colours, so you’re bound to find a colour that suits the look you’re going for!

Another thing to consider when it comes to colours is your garden furniture. Matching your furniture to any colours that you’ve already implemented in your garden will ensure that it doesn’t stick out, not quite looking right.

Once you have established a general theme in your garden, you can begin to think of different zones that you want to create throughout. This could be for a vegetable patch, a water feature, a kid’s play area, or even some decking. You can easily buy sleepers to fit into your garden which will create the illusion that there’s more to your garden than there actually is.

Choosing the right plants for your garden will also make all the difference in how it looks. For example, if you’re going for a clean and modern look, buying creeper plants will change the whole look of the garden. For a modern look, it’s probably best to go for small shrubbery that’s easy to maintain, and small yet colourful flowers to finish off your look. If you’re heading towards the rustic look, a plethora of different flowers will complete your look perfectly. Consider planting bamboo to add even more mystery to your garden!

Use these ideas to help you theme your garden ready for the many BBQs that you will be hosting for your friends and family. Show off your garden with pride and don’t forget, enjoy the summer while it lasts.
