6 Ways to Create an Artistic Garden

6 Ways to Create an Artistic Garden

If you’re an artistic person, why not let your garden become your new creative project? 

The opportunities are endless; from shed murals to vibrant plants and unique ornaments, you can create the garden of your dreams. At Atlas Sheds, we have compiled a list of 6 fun ways to design an artistic garden. 

If you’re looking to add a key feature to the space, why not install a garden shed? You can decorate this to create your own art studio, lounge area, or outside bar

The Importance of Art in Gardens

How well-maintained your garden is can affect your overall mood. When you look out of your window, you don’t want to see an overgrown shrubbery or a broken shed. 

Instead, you want a visually appealing space that you can relax in and appreciate being in nature. Adding a personal touch to your garden will make the latter more enjoyable. 

Artistic elements can bring a fun, fresh approach, showcasing your personality and impressing guests. Bright colours can increase your dopamine, so be sure to add a splash of colour here and there, whether that be in the flowers you choose or your garden decor. 

6 Ideas for a Creative Garden

Projects can be fun, but they can also be time-consuming. Pick 2 or 3 to start off with to prevent overwhelm and invest a few hours a day till it's completed.

1. Sculptural Elements

Having a large or eye-catching structure in your garden that your decor is built around can make a huge difference.

A summerhouse is the perfect way to achieve a bold look which can be used for multiple purposes. Whether you want to create a home gym or a cinema room, a summerhouse provides plenty of storage space. 

If you have a seating area in your garden, add a gazebo or pavilion to upgrade your lounging experience. 

2. Creative Planting

If you love gardening or you’re a plant lover, why not get creative with your arrangements?

You could colour-coordinate your plants or purchase cute or funky plant pots and hanging baskets to place them in. For extra detail, you could paint the plant pot yourself. 

For vertical gardening, add a wall trellis and place a range of plants and flowers on it, varying in colour and texture. Grow vegetables, fruits, and herbs for an interactive garden. 

3. Water Features

Installing a water feature in your garden is a great way to create a tranquil and unique space. 

You could opt for a large water fountain in the middle of your garden or hide it behind an archway as a secret hideout. Fountains can feature woodland creatures, cherubs, or Greek sculptures.

For a more captivating look, create your own waterfall or stream. For this, you can use rocks or boulders, and you’ll need to purchase liners, pumps and filters. Read here for a step-by-step guide.

4. DIY Garden Art Projects

With this, you can get as creative as you want to. 

Think homemade decorative stakes, recycled art sculptures, garden mosaics, and bird feeders. You could come up with your own design or search for some inspiration on Pinterest. 

You could place your art on trees, in potted plants, on your garden shed, or hang them from your fence.

5. Seasonal Decorations

There’s nothing like welcoming a new season by decorating for the occasion. 

Here are some ideas for each season:

  1. Spring: Pastel colours, floral wreaths, early-blooming flowers, easter decor. 
  2. Summer: Wind chimes, lounge chairs, bright flowers, sun catchers. 
  3. Autumn: Pumpkins, wreaths, rich colours, ornamental glasses. 
  4. Winter: Outdoor lights, Christmas ornaments, fire pit, winter plants. 

6. Artistic Fencing and Walls

If you have a wooden fence or a brick wall in your garden, why not design a mural?

Purchase wall paint and stencils and draw a painting or pattern on your fence for a unique look. You could depict landscapes, whimsical scenes, or abstract designs.

If you’re not a painter, you could stick mosaic tiles to the wall or hang up ornaments and motifs for a personalised touch.
