Tips for Organizing a Small Garden in a Minimalist Home
The garden is one part of a minimalist home that is sometimes rarely noticed. Even if we design the garden in an attractive way, this space can be the best place for you to unwind and add to the comfort and beauty of the house. Here are some tips for arranging a small garden in your minimalist home:
1. Grow plants
The best minimalist home garden designs start with structural plants, which are filled with beautiful flowering plants. So decorate your home garden with ornamental plants. If the land is small, adjust the size of the ornamental plants. However, don’t make the entire garden filled with plants, give space to be able to store other furniture. In addition, it is better if the ornamental plants placed in the garden consist of various types, and choose those with brightly colored flowers.
2. Install beautiful paving
The color and style of the paving and the way it is laid can provide a strong design direction for an entire garden. Black or silver paving laid out in a casual design will form the perfect backdrop for a sleek, modern scheme. It’s a good idea to install porcelain paving because this type of paving doesn’t absorb water so it requires less cleaning than traditional types of paving. In addition, laying paving must also be considered. By making sure the paving is parallel to your indoor floor, you can blur the lines between interior and exterior.
3. Choose the right furniture
For smaller minimalist yards and patios, use folding furniture, or bench seats that can be placed under the dining table when not in use. While larger spaces can accommodate matching seating sets and tables. Invest in a nice minimalist home garden furniture set that will last for years. Consider the space and provide enough space for everyone to sit comfortably, and pull out the chair without bumping anything. In addition, whatever garden furniture you buy, don’t forget to complement it with outdoor cushions for extra comfort.
4. Pay attention to the garden fence
In a small garden, a wall or fence is probably the largest visible element. So it is very important that you choose a fence that looks good. Try to give an attractive impression, for example by choosing a fence color that matches the flower colors in a minimalist home garden, or choose a neutral fence color. If you cannot replace the fence, clean it or cover it with trellis. This fence can be used to frame plants or a seating area.
5. Don’t forget about lighting
Speaking of lighting, don’t underestimate how important it is to create a lighting atmosphere in a minimalist home garden. In exactly the same way as indoor lighting, do the same in the garden and choose a variety of sources, from stand and table lamps, to candle lanterns and slung strings of bulbs. With the right outdoor lights will bring character and a garden atmosphere that can be enjoyed while relaxing at night.
