6 Tips for a Cozy & Quaint Cottage Garden

Who doesn’t love the cottagecore aesthetic that’s been blowing up on the internet for the last couple of years? It’s happy, it’s cozy, and it’s a nod to simplicity and not falling for consumeristic behaviour. In general, it’s all about enjoying the flow and being simple. This is kind of how one could describe the cottage garden. They’re fun, they’re wild, and they’re not rigid whatsoever. Even if you’re not a big fan of the aesthetic or lifestyle, you can still enjoy the fun and beauty that the garden creates. Here are some tips for creating the perfect cottage garden.

Let the Flowers Bloom!

Flowers are a symbol of beauty and hope. They are also a symbol of life. Flowers have many meanings and they can be used to express emotions or to celebrate important occasions. Plus, the bees need them anyways. So why not embrace colour rather than embrace minimalism in the garden? The garden was meant to be full and vibrant!

Limit the Space and Keep it Rounded

One of the most important things to keep in mind when designing your garden is the space available. You need to make sure that you are not wasting any space and that you are maximizing it as much as possible. One of the ways to do this is by using round planting beds. This will give you more space for your plants, and it will also create a more natural look. So just have space and embrace it, use it for flowers and other plants that are good for the ecosystem!

Add an Allium to Your Garden

Allium flowers are a great addition to any garden. They are easy to care for, low maintenance, and can grow in most climates. Plus the allium flower comes in a variety of colours and shapes. They can be planted as an accent or as a main feature of the garden. In general, add lots of bulbs in your garden so you’ll have colour all throughout the year!

Use Mature Trees as Screens or as Dreamy Backgrounds

Big trees are a symbol of stability and longevity. They are also a great way to create a shady space for reading, meditation, or simply relaxing. The use of mature trees as screens or as dreamy backgrounds is becoming more popular in modern architecture. It is an environmentally conscious choice that has many benefits for design and the environment.

Plant Perennials and Annuals Together

When planting perennials and annuals together, it is important to consider the height of the plants. Annuals are typically shorter, so they should be planted in front of or behind the perennials. It’s a great way to add some depth and you can always count for colour to be in the garden at all times.

Create an Outdoor Living Room Space

Whether you choose a patio, a self build conservatory kit, or anything else is entirely up to you. This can be one of the greatest ways to help continue on with the cottage garden aesthetic. Plus, it gives you the chance to have an area outside so you can just enjoy the views of the garden. 

Josh and I can't wait to put together a cottagore and wild garden when we buy a house! I already know it's going to be absolutely beautiful.

Until next time,
