Simple Garden Landscaping Ideas
Sometimes the best solutions reside in simple things, whether we refer to interior design or outdoor landscaping ideas. When space is not enough, just confine to those ideas that ensure the best aesthetics and functionality ratio so that you are efficient in the end. All these being said, here are some simple garden landscaping ideas which prove eye-catching decors can also rely on simplicity.
If your family and guests are always trekking across the grass, take it as a cue that the route should be recognized: Install slate or concrete paving stones. You will protect the rest of the grass while visually layering the landscape.
In the same context, do not ignore the ornamental potential of an edge, especially one made of stone. It comes with a double role, first of all aesthetic and then practical, blocking the weeds’ invasion. An alley and a couple of such edges complete any natural décor in a garden.
Since garden also means color, play with contrasts. Pick plants of different colors and height so the chromatic diversity and different layers inspire abundance and vitality in the end. A big flower pot where to plant such flowers is also a good idea.
The image below speaks eloquently about the simple, yet effective decorating ideas. A climbing plant against the white background of a fence is a silhouette of a great visual effect that will draw curious and favorable looks.
Garden means vegetation, but that doesn’t stop you from adding shapes and textures to diversify the landscape. We mentioned alleys and edges, but any other accents of stone in various size and shapes can bring extra elegance to the green area.
Give a small garden extra refinement by enclosing it with a white fence and a gate opening under a small pergola. Again, a mix of aesthetics and functionality, with the climbing plants finding a good support to grow.
Create small islands of greenery and other colors that will render the whole landscape more dynamic, avoiding monotony. They are more visible against a lawn, featuring an enhanced ornamental role.
Here are some examples speaking of the beauty of simple landscaping ideas.
