What is a Bohemian Garden?

It's a very artistic approach to gardening that is characterized by unusual plant types, textures and colors. A Bohemian Garden also features decorative objects like pots, metal sculptures or vintage pieces of furniture. The plants are often in an asymmetrical arrangement with no formal plan involved.

How do I make my garden Boho? For you to make your garden boho you will need a bit of imagination and some creativity. Accent your space with colorful, overgrown plants or vines to create a Bohemian mood. Utilize different items like antiques, chairs or stools as decorative pieces throughout the garden for interest.

How to design a contemporary bohemian garden?

Bohemian gardens are meant to be a bit more whimsical with unusual plants and decorative items. For your contemporary Bohemian garden, you can incorporate some of the traditional elements like stone or brick walkways, pots, sculptures, or shady trees but also add in modern elements such as benches made from recycled materials, pops of bright colors, and geometric shapes.

How to design a tranquil bohemian garden?

A tranquil Bohemian Garden is very calm with little movement or color for an "unwind" feeling. You may use rock gardens as decoration that will provide nature's serene ambiance while water features help create this mood too. Alternatively, you could put up natural-looking bamboo screens to block out views from the outside world.

What do I need?

A patch of land that you're willing to devote time and effort into creating (ideally at least an hour)

Tips for Creating Your Own Bohemian Garden on a Budget:

  • Use ground covers instead of grass so it won't require as much maintenance - Cover up any dead patches with moss or succulents
  • Add some color! Plant brightly colored flowers and shrubs around your garden beds for instant eye candy
  • Trellis poles/fence posts/etc...to stake up bamboo sticks in various lengths along them to form frames without having any horizontal lines on which plants can grow against; this way they'll have room to spread out more naturally instead of being confined by their height towards the ground like normal hedges are.
  • Use a variety of materials to create patterns in your garden. This will make it seem more natural
  • Layer different plants on top of each other for added depth and texture
