Don’t get us wrong, one of the most pleasant, peaceful and picturesque things in life is staring out of the kitchen window, your hands covered in soap suds, and seeing a mural of trees and shrubs that are fifty shades of green and brown. However, it is also okay to think life’s too short for such natural colours. It’s okay to want your garden to pop more than a fireworks finale.

The big question is “how?”
Well, to help you find the answer to this question, we have pulled together a list of amazing landscaping ideas that will beautify your garden in ways you never thought possible. Enjoy.
- Planters That Demand Attention
While the plants and perennials you pick will have a huge influence on the way your garden looks and feels and bursts to life, way too many people overlook the planters they pop them in. Don’t. This is your chance to get creative. Paint your old planters a bright red or copper or green, transform old wine crates or barrels or tires into planters, or just mix and match your old planters to create a new sense of depth and dimension. You’ll be gobsmacked at the results.
- Grow Yourself An Interest
Nothing is going to make you appreciate your garden more than the moment you see a tree start flowering, especially if they burst to life with soft-smelling and brightly-coloured blooms. That’s when you’re heart will stop for a second and you’ll be reminded just how beautiful the smaller things in life are. As for the best flowering trees, we recommend you look at species like the Purple Orchid, the Hong Kong Orchid, Jacaranda and the Lemon Bottlebrush tree. All of these will add a new sense of interest and aroma to your space, that’s for sure.
- Embrace The Unexpected
The more unexpected you can make your garden, the more you will be attracted by its allure, and the best way to do this is through the materials you chuck about. Corrugated steel, scraps of wood, driftwood, odd tidbits you picked up at a reclaim yard, preloved copper items and all that sort of stuff can be reused to create some artful moments and unique garden features. Our advice: start with your garden walls and patio area. It could be hanging the unexpected from your fence or making your patio furniture out of the unexpected.
- A Lick of Paint Works Wonders
More color is better in the garden. There are so many ways you can add a lick of paint to your garden and, get it right, you’ll wonder why you never braved it sooner. Paint your garden fence a nice and bright shade of emerald to make your climbers pop, paint the walls of your sunken garden a bubblegum pink to give it some wow-factor or paint your garden furniture in a colour that will grab the eye, and then throw a myriad of different cushions on to them – different sizes, shapes, colours, everything.
Do one of these or embrace them all, it doesn’t matter – they’ll all make you love your washing up view.
