While mastering gardening technique should be your utmost priority, you can create something more interesting, such as building modern rustic decor for your garden.

In this article, I’m going to give you some practical tips on how to create a modern rustic decorin the simplest way possible.


1. Grow Plants that Suit the Purpose

In general, people may consider a rustic-themed garden as something boring since rustic colours are not “eyes-popping”. That being said, there is nothing wrong in growing flowers and plants that have a bit of dark-coloured accent. In fact, these plants are quite aesthetic!

Black tulip, purple calla lily, hellebore, black petunia, and black widow cranesbill geranium are excellent choices for this purpose. Try combining these dark-coloured flowers with bold flowers such as rose and dahlia to get even better result.

2. Give Rustic Touch through Small Decorative Items

Small decorative items can give such a big impact on creating an aesthetically pleasing modern rustic decor.Try placing a copper-colored statue between your plants or adding a bit of ornamental decorative accent on your fence. 

You can also try putting a tall garden lamp with wooden frame to make your garden looks even more classic. Do not forget to lay some decorative stones on the ground to create a vintage footpath that will amaze any visitor who is casually walking into your garden.
