1. Define the spaces of the garden

2. Play with the lighting in the garden

At nightfall, the lighting can illuminate your garden, certainly, but also sublimate your outdoor space and make it visually larger. The goal? Give your garden a big and beautiful look. Alternate floor lamps, lanterns and lamps to the ground to diversify sources and lighting styles. And to set the mood in your garden, a garland with multiple bulbs, guinguette way, will be welcome!

 

 

3. Consider Closing as a Deco Element

A fence is made to delineate a garden, but you can also use it to blur its boundaries and create doubt.Consider the fence as a decorative element in its own right, either embellishing with a pretty wooden fence or canisses, or by planting. You can, for example, install climbing plants, roses, bushes or bushes at your feet. Create a beautiful illusion!
Tip : Cold tones (blue, gray) make elements appear farther away. Use and misuse this trick by planting blue flowers or using gray planters in the back of your garden.
