Flowers and greenery can help tie in your green space with the rest of your backyard or patio. They can act as the perfect accent that will compliment all your patio furniture pieces. Check out our tips below on how to incorporate flowers and greenery to your outdoor space:
The size of the flowers or plants that you would like to integrate into your outdoor space is extremely important. If you have a smaller space you may want to add potted flowers, herbs, and a small potted tree. However, if you have a larger space you may have a few more options. Along with the plants listed above, you could also incorporate shrubs, hedges, and larger trees.
Smell is very much based on preference. Do you love fragrant flowers or plants or do you find they can be overwhelming and distracting? Remember the space that you are creating is both for you and your guests. If you have an enclosed space fragrant flowers may not be ideal. Since it is all based on preference pick a few plants that are your favorite, just make sure not to go overboard.
Textured plants like succulents are one of the most popular plants to include in any space at the moment. Although these prickly plants look beautiful, depending on your guests they may not be right for your outdoor space. If you have younger children or you host parties where small children are in attendance it may be wise to avoid those textured plants like thorny roses or cacti.
One of the great things about adding flowers and greenery to your outdoor space is that you can match the flowers and greenery to your patio furniture and cushions. For example, if you had some accent pillows in our Melon fabric, flowers that are pink, orange, yellow, and blue could coordinate well with them. However, if your patio furniture cushions already use bright and vibrant fabric colors we suggest adding some neutral colored flowers and plants to create balance in your outdoor space.
One last thing to consider when looking at flowers and plants to integrate into your outdoor space is the amount of maintenance you will have to do. If you do not have a green thumb, we suggest a plant that requires little maintenance such as geraniums. If you are a more experienced gardener than perhaps add some flowers or plants that need a little more care.
