Colour in the garden isn’t just about using plants and flowers, some great effects can be had by using coloured objects.
Painting a wall introduces colour quickly and easily, and can be changed if you get tired of the colour.
It’s good to think about what’s planted in front of the wall too, these white flowers would disappear against a white wall.
The tones of these sempervivum plants are really enhanced by the pink wall.
Colours don’t have to be bright, this charcoal grey wall makes a wonderfull backdrop for the various shades of yellow flowers of day-lilies, achillea, rudbeckia and ornamental grasses.
How about having coloured garden furniture, rather than the usual white, green or timber.
A bright pink garden room makes the mood and atmosphere very different compared to a more subtle grey version.
There are some beautifully coloured tree bark, like the white stems of these birch trees.
