It’s no secret that Instagram is a great go-to for interior inspiration. Whether it’s a design idea for a darling home library you’re after, or a cool and chic game room, Instagram has it all. But how about when it comes to garden inspo? Well as it turns out, our Insta-friends have that covered too. Keep reading to see our favorite garden design inspirations – as spotted on Instagram.
The Sunken Garden
A study in green and white, this sunken garden belongs to celebrity gardener Claus Dalby.
I love the play on levels here, which work to break up the larger space. The aesthetic symmetry too, with the matching sculptures and umbrella-like trees, make this garden visually stunning to look at.
If you’re ever in doubt about how to up your garden game, just look to the charm and whimsy of wisteria.
In this pretty German garden, wisteria hangs languorously from wall to pergola, creating a magical floral walkway. Now admittedly, the perennial flowering vine is not the easiest to manage, but when its lavender blooms look this pretty, does that even matter?
Plot twist: gardens don’t have to be perfectly planned and meticulously organized to be considered beautiful. In fact, some of the most striking gardens on Instagram exude a wild and untamed aesthetic that boasts a charm all of its own.
Case in point – this lush, dense English country garden. It’s a riot of life and color, and fully captures the best of the English summer in one eye-catching visual. I can’t think of a better accompaniment to that sweet rustic cottage facade.
All at Zen
Just looking at this ‘gram makes me feel at ease. Muted colors and wood accents imbue this space with an easy elegance that is sure to appeal to all the minimalists out there.
One of the easiest ways to make the most of your garden is to actually approach landscape design as an extension of the interior design of your home.
Here for instance, designer Suzanne Tucker’s garden setup doubles as an alfresco dining room, complete with an on-trend rattan lampshade and rustic iron table set. In doing so, you’re much more likely to incorporate your garden into your everyday life instead of leaving it to sit in abandon.
