Green isn’t the only colour that can appear in your garden. Splashes of bright reds, sunshine yellows, pastel pinks and soft whites can add interest and sparkle to any outdoor space. We’ve collated some of our favourite ways to introduce colour into your garden.
Cacti come in all shapes, sizes and hues, and they’re a great way to infuse your garden with colour. Best of all, they are hardwearing and low-maintenance, perfect for no-fuss gardens.
Different shades of green create a beautiful and soft aesthetic, and the sheer diversity of plants means it’s easy to layer your greens to cultivate a verdant garden. Instead of repeating the same plant over and over again, opt for plants that have slightly different leaf tones, creating a unique palette while maintaining continuity.
Add pops of colour to your garden beds with the addition of plants like the Cordyline banksii. This striking plant has hot pink and purple-striped leaves, it can tolerate frost and full sun, and it is low-maintenance. Planting bulbs is another way to go, ensuring you have a longer season of colour and a wide variety of hues for most of the year.
Rocks and toppings are a great way to add contrast and an earthy feel to your garden. Adding toppings to your flower beds will give the space a decorative and textured look and feel.
Set the tone for your home by painting your front door an invitingly bright colour. There are endless options to choose from, like ocean blue or a pretty peach.
Continue spreading colour throughout your garden by painting the exterior of your home a fresh, bold colour, or taking a brush to your front fence or borders for a touch-up.
Use accessories to give your space that ‘wow’ factor. Try a hanging bird box, candles or fairy lights.
Now sit back and enjoy your fresh and vibrant garden!
