Paint Your Garden With Plants

Want to turn your entire garden into a canvas? We show you how to do it.

Gardens can be many things – a place to relax, enjoy good food with friends or spend time with the family.

But did you realise you can use plants to create an overall picture in your garden?

In the same way artists use different colours and textures to create an image, you can use different plants to turn your garden into a giant canvas. Tim Gowland, from Great Park Farm, shares his tips on how to paint with plants.

Make use of variety

When creating an overall picture in a garden it is important to use a mixture of textures, shapes, sizes and colour. Decide whether you want to stick to a particular palette or create a more abstract effect with clashing colours. Just as paintings will often have a focal point, think about using larger plants to create centre pieces which will draw the eye and work out from there. If you’re limited on space, introducing a plant with a distinctive leaf or petal shape can create the same effect.

Keep a sense of perspective

Perspective is key for artists when creating an image and Tim says the same applies to gardens. Consider how your garden will be viewed and how your planting scheme will lead the eye. “The garden needs perspective, the plants need to flow into each other to give the viewer a feeling of the love that the creator has put into it,” says Tim. Think year-round Gardens change throughout the seasons so it is important to think about how different plants can be used to contribute to your overall image throughout the year. “The picture will be forever changing through the season so the plants need to reflect the year and not just a season,” says Tim. “A mix of evergreen and deciduous plants, which lose their leaves in winter, give an important structure to the garden.”

Size doesn’t matter

You might think your garden is too small to get creative but careful planting can transform even the most bijou space into a masterpiece. Whether you have a small courtyard or acres to create in, the key thing is to come up with a plan taking into account the three main areas covered above – use of variety, seasonal planting and perspective. “Whatever the size of garden the same principles apply,” says Tim.
