Stuck with deciding what plants to put in your garden? Do you like a more traditional style or wish to create a unique space that will amaze friends, neighbours and family? Gardeners at heart, nature lovers, lovers of greenery, we offer solutions that appeal to you all. Thus, we have collected for you in this article some amazing ideas for plants and gardens.

A beautiful garden without breaking the bank

Designing a beautiful garden without spending a lot of money is quite possible with a touch of creativity. Your credit card will not have to suffer if you have a green thumb! Pictured is a perfect example of original and eclectic garden. The plants are raised in old salvaged pots. Do not hesitate to recycle things you do not use anymore to give style to your plants and gardens.

Vertical garden

We are so accustomed to horizontal gardens, that if we may say so, seeing this vertical garden is somewhat of a rarity! However, it is perhaps the future of our traditional garden, since house plots are getting smaller. Vivsa is behind this project which combines energy efficiency and sustainability. This garden will delight the buyers since it is accessible to all, and they can benefit from any point of view. Plants and gardens have never been so beautiful together!

If you want to add more ambience to your patio or even in your garden, why not define the spaces? By creating level or partitioning various  areas off from one another, you can create points of difference between flowers, vegetables and entertaining spaces. Almost in a secret garden type way, if you have children, they will surely love hiding and getting lost behind the screens.

An english garden

For urban dwellers who do not have the opportunity to have a garden, you can arrange your deck to make it a green space . In this photo, small flower pots have been added to the shelves to bring a touch of freshness to a largely concrete and timber area. It is not always necessary to plant many plants and flowers for the result to be exceptional, you have the proof here.

Burning desire

Here is a garden which is totally opposite to the previous! This tropical garden style will transport your guests to Latin America! These exotic plants, planted in the ground or in pots, are highlighted by lighting at the same level. These type of plants look warm, welcoming and relaxing. A harmonious state that will fly you to distant lands in the evenings with friends over a glass of wine.

Succulents & cacti

Stay within the exotic theme by adding cacti and succulents to your garden. These succulent plants can survive in hostile habitats, they are the perfect choice for lovers of beautiful gardens which do not necessarily have a green theme. They require no maintenance and are an unusual spectacle. Away from the flowers and plants we are used to admiring, these cacti resonate and delight the eye.

Surrounded by nature

Basking and relaxing in lush greenery is what you feel you will do when you look at this photograph. A secluded, quiet, and nature surrounded area makes up this amazing setting. This area can greet guests and let them forget they are in the city. Being surrounded by plants is great for health and well-being too!

Lush greenery

For nature lovers, this garden will be the ultimate. It is impossible not to fall in love with this space; it truly seems like nature has taken over. This garden consists of a central basin around which an installation of wood and stone has been installed. Wild plants thrive in this fantastic setting. This garden is obviously not accessible to all budgets, but you might get inspired to dream up a green space which is similar.
