How passionate are you about your garden? If this question seem slightly odd to you, let me clarify this a little bit. Famous playwright Richard Brinsley Sheridan once said to one of his guests, “Won’t you come into the garden? I would like my roses to see you.” He meant to appreciate his guest’s beauty, but it also shows how passionate he was about his garden.

Do you feel the same elation of joy whenever you open the door to your garden? It should be!Today we are going to show you seven beautiful gardens full of ideas to motivate you to work on your garden, too…

Hot magenta gives this small garden and patio a remarkable appearance. The small outdoor sofa, decked out with white cushions, is set right in front of this wall. You can see a colourful area rug spread on the floor as well.

The area close to the trellis that doubles up as a boundary wall is decorated with numerous shrubs, small palm trees, bamboo and taro. Though small in size, the ravishing colours and delightful ambience of this garden are enough to captivate anyone visiting this place.

A rustic setting is the main attraction for this country style garden. It is wonderfully decorated with a careful selection of shaded trees, small shrubs, hedges and seasonal flowers. There aren’t many who could successfully resist the temptation of sitting on the rustic bench for hours, engrossed by the serenity of nature.

Even a mid-sized garden can be decorated in such style with élan. All you need to do is seek the assistance of an experienced friend or landscape designer. With some amount of skill and effort, you too can design your garden in a charming rustic fashion.

An urban oasis

Can you believe this tranquil urban oasis is located in one of the busiest areas of West London? A patch of green turf is enclosed in a travertine pathway which is in turn surrounded by some more green plants. This certainly is one of the most enchanting ways of decorating one’s backyard.

Tranquil garden with a water feature

A water feature like a pond, fountain or swimming pool is a big asset for any garden. This beautiful garden of Beek-Ubbergen, a faraway Dutch village, once again proves this. 

It is designed with a pretty little pond and sundeck. The wealth of greenery decorating the lakeside gives it a most picturesque makeover.

Kid’s playground

This is no gingerbread cottage of Hansel and Gretel deep in the woods, but it comes very close to that. This tiny cottage is built to charm the little ones of the family and their playmates and it is perfectly suited for the purpose. 

It also has a small patio decorated with picket fence. Set in the quiet corner of the backyard, it would be a beautiful addition to any home with children.

An amazing patio

The owners of the house have left no stone unturned to design an amazing garden patio. It has a stylish pergola, elaborate seating arrangements under the shade, a whirlpool bath and a fire pit. 

Potted plants, artworks, lighting fixtures and trendy coffee table are also used to enhance its beauty. The surrounding grassy lawn is embellished with carefully selected tropical plants.

Peaceful Japanese garden

This peaceful garden, influenced by Japanese gardening techniques, boasts a fish pond and wooden pier. It has a tiny artificial island turned into a modern floating deck. Stylish reclining chairs decorate the deck area. Large hedges and trees, pruned in Japanese style, create an atmosphere of calmness and serenity.

You can use any of these gardens as inspiration to decorate your own back yard. It will give you an opportunity to enjoy a close association with nature without stirring far away from your home.
