Rustic Garden Styles
Rustic garden styles are cosy and romantic because they focus on repurposing materials and objects. Creating a rustic dining area with an overhead pergola made from reclaimed wood can become the focal point. If you have the room, include a shed where you can embrace your creative side through art or yoga. A natural and earthy palette is perfect for a rustic garden, but you can add colour through painted benches, fences, sheds and flowers. Encouraging nature into your garden with bee or bird homes is a lovely touch. Perhaps the best thing about rustic gardens is that they can look unkempt, so you don’t have to worry about a pristine lawn or pruned bushes. The in-house design team at Acacia Gardens has created a list of ten rustic garden features you may wish to include.
