When I think of a garden, I think lots of greenery and flowers. The first thing to come to mind is not rustic. However, when decorating an outside garden area, rustic elements provide a perfect contrast to really set the space off. To provide some inspiration, I came up with a collection of creative rustic garden ideas.
Rustic Garden Art
Place An Old Ladder In The Garden
Ladders are a great thing to use to add height in a garden. An old rustic ladder provides a nice contrast to the plants.
A ladder plant holder like this adds rustic warmth. Besides displaying plants, you can also display vintage items like this charming old sprinkler.
Make A Display Of Rusty Wheels
A collection of rusty wheels will add a ton of rustic interest to a garden.
These wheels are displayed as a decorative border to a garden. The flowers that show through make a beautiful contrast.
Place A Chair In The Garden
Chairs don’t have to be used just for sitting. A weathered or otherwise rustic chair makes a perfect flower planter chair.
Like a ladder, this chair adds some needed height in the garden.
Use Old Drawers As Rustic Planters
You can use pretty much any rustic container as a planter. However, old drawers have a certain charming appeal.
Haul An Old Wheelbarrow To The Garden
Normally a wheelbarrow is used when creating a garden. However, when the garden is complete just haul your old wheelbarrow out to the middle of it. A wheelbarrow is yet another great rustic item to use as a planter.
A wheelbarrow planter can hold a lot of flowers making it a wonderful addition to a rustic garden.
Do you have any rustic garden ideas that you would like to share?
