Five Ways to Colour Your Garden

This month I am joining forces with the #30DaysWild campaign connecting with nature and learning about the wonderful world in which we live.



One thing I really do love is colour whether that be on the walls of the house or even in the garden. Just a pop of colour can brighten things up and make a place look less clinical.

When we first moved in the house looked like Austin Powers home purple, orange and pink walls groovy baby. We decided to change the colours to more neutral, natural tones such as blues and greens. As a result it looks more homely and less likely to give you a headache.

With the weather warming up I thought it would be an idea to consider how we can incorporate colour in the garden.

  • Consider what types of plants/flowers you’d like to use and the colours they come in.

  • Who will be using the garden? Play equipment comes in a range of colours to attract little ones.

  • Paint can be used for making markers, giving the washing line a makeover and decorating old furniture.

  • Many garden items come in a range of colours without the need to paint them.
  • Perhaps the most subtle but most significant way in which to inject colour is to invite wildlife into your garden.
How do you invite colour into your garden?

  1. Enjoy being wild in the garden! Most of our garden colour comes from the flowers, but we have a few ornaments here and there!

  2. We have quite a colourful garden here too. Plenty of toys and a border of flowers but also we have some solar powered colour changing lights too which really help when it starts to get dark :) #BestandWorst

  4. Love all the photos of the colour in your garden. Most of our colour comes from the flowers and from all the girls' garden toys but we are hoping to add a few decorations out there - windmills, butterflies and things like that which will also add some colour to the garden.

  9. Lovely ideas. I've not got a garden, but make the most of my balcony with colourful pots of herbs and flowers. I agree that even splashes of colour brighten things up and are so cheery. #HomeEtc
