JUST because it’s cold doesn’t mean your garden needs to look dull and gray.
It may not be spring, but you can do a lot with your outdoor space to keep it looking lush all year round.
Interior designer and horticulture expert Maryline Damour has shared her top tips for making sure your garden looks like a ship in all seasons.
Talking to Beautiful house “Like many elements of my garden, I designed the fence structure around it to be both decorative and functional,” she says.
“I grow vegetables and flowers close to the fence so I can get support during the growing season.”
She also points out that if it snowed the fence would make for something beautiful to look at when everything else is covered.
Next, Maryline suggests your garden tap into many senses.
“While you may already have smell under control in spring and summer, think about the acoustics during the colder months: Pea gravel is a great design element that appeals to many senses in the area,” she says. garden.
“It changes color when it rains; has a lovely crackle when you walk on it; and feels comfortable walking barefoot in the garden (which is totally a thing…or so it should be!). every few years we add new green pea gravel to keep it looking good.”
Finally, the expert encourages gardeners to be free to get creative and decorate their outdoor spaces.
Maryline suggests lighting it up, just like you would in the house.
“I have a combination of solar and electric lanterns in the garden. This allows me to spend quality time in the garden as the days get shorter,” she says.
She added: “If you’ve raised the bed, here’s another opportunity to decorate the garden. We used wood for the boxes and made the metal corner stands (purely decorative). ) that I leave out in the rain to rust for a rough finish. !”
