Does your garden look a little drab? Tired? Or just boring? The hot sun can kill a lawn and drain a lot of the colour from any plants or flowers you might have, and if you’re renting a property you might not want to spend a lot of money on a garden that ultimately, isn’t yours. So, how can you add colour to your garden without breaking the bank?
Believe it or not, you don’t need to have a huge budget to inject a little colour in your garden or your outdoor space. You don’t even need to have a traditional garden either! Colour can come from a wide range of sources and – thankfully – they’re all budget-friendly.
Read On for 6 Simple Ways You Can Add Colour to Your Garden.
1. Look for Colour in Trees
It doesn’t have to be just flowers that we use to inject a little colour. Trees are a simple yet bold way to add colour to any outdoor space! From a colourful cherry blossom tree to fast growing evergreen trees, the impact they have is immense yet they’re relatively simple to install and maintain!
2. Your Outdoor Furniture
Brown outdoor furniture might go with your current aesthetic or appear more weather waring, however, it’s usually dull and can really make a garden space look lacklustre. So, choose some colourful pieces instead. Garden furniture also works as a focal point, so it’s a great place to start if you want to add a pop of colour. If you’re on a bit of a budget don’t worry, instead of buying new furniture, purchase some colourful seat cushions or table accessories to achieve a similar effect.
3. Add Some Colourful Pots
This one is super easy and can be used in gardens of all sizes, as well as on balconies and back yards. You can simply choose pots of various colours, shapes, and sizes and arrange them however you wish. This is a great opportunity to really play around with colours and set the colour palette perfectly. Whether you go for something striking like magentas and purples or more softer tones like blue and white, you can effortlessly add a vibrant and interesting look to your landscape.
4. Add an Outdoor Rug
This might seem a little out of the ordinary, but it works brilliantly. Adding interest and colour at ground level is easy when you add a rug underneath your garden furniture or add one to your patio area. Don’t forget to bring it in when it rains!
5. Paint a Wall
Liven up that garden wall with a can of paint and a couple of hours of your time and you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it sooner. When you choose the colour, make sure it compliments the plants around it and also your garden furniture and plant pots.
6. Add Some Wall Tiles
Turkish, Grecian or even Moroccan, there are thousands of tile designs and colour combinations you could go for. Simply choose a wall and create a design for an instant feature wall and pop of colour.
