Bohemian Garden Styles

Bohemian garden styles are the ultimate choice for homeowners wanting a laid-back, relaxed and unconventional garden. Since the popularity of boho interiors, continuing this style outside is a logical extension. Boho garden designs go with the flow avoiding clean lines instead opting for winding paths and curvy plant borders. Natural and rustic construction and furniture materials in a warm colour palette add to the overall charm. Comfort and cosiness are a must with plump sofas and hammocks. Adding layers of cushions, throws, and outdoor rugs help achieve an eclectic look. Lush planting and evening lighting are the final touches to creating your dreamy boho garden. The in-house design team at Acacia Gardens has created a list of ten bohemian features that you’ll want to include.

Frequently Asked Questions
About Bohemian Garden Styles and Design

A bohemian or boho garden is a relaxed and cosy style that extends the boho interior trend. Keep the design laid-back with winding paths and curved borders rather than straight lines. The central focus is a decked area which you can create from composite decking for longevity. Adding a comfortable sofa, an iconic peacock chair, and a hammock looks amazing. You can layer your outdoor lounge area with Berber-style cushions, throws and outdoor rugs.

Any property looks lovely with this garden style, whether contemporary or classic.

Materials with a distressed appearance work well, such as composite decking for a terrace. Natural stone is another option. Railway sleeper-raised planters are an excellent idea for growing veggies. Rattan and bamboo furniture are very boho.

An earthy colour palette such as yellows, browns and oranges is a great choice. If you prefer something more striking, try a cream with black

Lush or dramatic plants are the way to go. Keep colours to a minimum, such as greens with pops of orange or yellow. Try ferns, bamboos and pampas grass.
