Rustic garden decor radiates cosiness and can be implemented with relatively little effort. Let yourself be inspired by my ideas!
© Christine - Fotolia.com According to a survey by the internet platform statista.de, around 73 percent of all garden owners stay in their green domicile every day. Now this survey should not be taken so seriously, because in winter this number will certainly not be correct. The fact is, however, that the number of garden lovers is increasing, regardless of whether a pure utility garden is preferred, or whether it is a mixture of an ornamental garden and a self-catering area.

In the latter case, decoration plays a major role, because those who use their garden for relaxation also value "cosiness". What exactly finds its place in the garden always depends on personal taste. At gartentipps.com we have already presented you with various ideas, such as how you can design your garden in a vintage style, create autumn decorations or set southern accents with terracotta figures. This article is primarily about the rustic garden design and corresponding decorative accessories. The trend towards "rough" is returning - also in our gardens.

What makes a rustic garden decoration?

For me, the word rustic immediately associates images in my head that are reminiscent of grandma's old farmer's cupboard - so coarse decorations and robust shapes should not be missing. In contrast to the puristic decoration, where straightforward, modern shapes are important, the rustic garden decor impresses with rural elements and above all lots of wood. If you want to implement "real" eye-catchers and an original rustic style, you are looking for antique treasures. The best place to go are classified ads portals on the Internet or flea markets. If you like to browse, you will find current flea market dates on marktcom.de, sorted by state or postcode.

But also in the trade there is now a huge selection of decorative elements for lovers of the rustic style, which have been recreated according to the "old" model. For example, meingartenversand.de offers flower pots and planters made of wood that can be perfectly integrated into a rustic garden design. The advantage of these decorative pieces over their "old ancestors" is that they have been treated weather-resistant and are therefore more durable.

Anyone who has spent their childhood in the country still knows them, the good old handcarts or wheelbarrows. It used to be used to transport hay or manure, but today they decorate pimped carts Your garden. You can change the look individually and achieve different accents. In order to stay true to the rustic appearance, you should not use bright colors - natural wood tones are better. Rusty drawbars or wheels do not need to be polished, on the contrary, they make up the rustic charm. Lavender works particularly well in your cart model, but herbs such as parsley, dill or basil can also be planted.

Attention: Before filling in the soil and planting, be sure to lay out the foil and put a layer of gravel about 2 cm high on it.

In the past, empty fruit and wine boxes piled up in the delivery area of ‚Äč‚Äčsupermarkets, today it is difficult to get such specimens. The reason is the increasing popularity of building shelves from it yourself (detailed instructions for printing on landidee.info) and using it for various decorative purposes in the apartment.
