Injecting colour into your garden doesn’t have to be difficult or time-consuming and it doesn’t just have to come from plants and shrubs. Garden Furniture, colourful plant pots, garden art and plants can all help to create a colourful outdoor space.
Whether you want to create impact with an entirely new colour scheme, or simply add a bit of colour to brighten up a dull patio or flowerbed, there are lots of ways to introduce colour into your garden. How much time you spend will depend on the effect you want to achieve.
For a quick splash of colour add bright, colourful plants and foliage to your flower pots. Or if you’ve got more time, try painting a wall in a single vibrant colour or creating some lively wall art on a feature wall.
Remember though, colour doesn’t have to mean bright yellows, reds and blues. Dusty tones of purple or grey can have just as much of an impact. The colours you choose can affect your mood as well as the look of your garden. ’Hot’ colours – bold reds, oranges, yellows and pinks stimulate your senses and make flowers appear closer whilst ‘cool’ colours – blues, purples and pale pinks, are calming and restful and can be used to make a small space feel bigger.
Choose your colours carefully and start creating the brilliant garden you’ve always wanted.
