Secret Garden Design Ideas: How To Create Your Own Secret Garden

I love this wrought iron gate looking into a secret garden. The courtyard is beautiful. I would love to have something like this in my backyard. #fromhousetohome #secretgarden #gardening #gardenideas #outdoorlivingspace #patiosanddecks #gardeningideas Learn how to create your own secret garden with these secret garden design ideas that will turn your backyard into a relaxing retreat you won’t want to leave. A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about being in Charleston, SC and all of the beautiful window boxes I saw, which I’m definitely planning to incorporate into my landscape design. Secret Garden Design Ideas The other thing I love about Charleston is the gardens. Many of the houses have fairly small yards but they still have the most beautiful gardens. Even from the street, they look so inviting you just want to go in and sit down. I think it’s because they all feel like romantic secret garden rooms, gas-lit lanterns and all! So when I created my backyard plan, I decided to use some of the Charleston secret garden design ideas to do my own version in my standard suburban yard. Of course, I didn’t have the beautiful architecture or the old cobblestone walkways. But I still managed to get some of that secret garden room feeling. Keep reading to find out how to create your own secret garden room even if you have a suburban yard. 1. Define An Entryway The first element of a secret garden that all Charleston gardens seem to have is defined entry ways, usually with an arbor and a gate leading into them. The arbor creates an entryway that looks and feels special. The gate makes you notice that you’re entering (you actually have to stop to open it). While not nearly as grand as the Charleston version, installing a standard garden arbor over your entry way still has the same appeal. You Might Also Like: Creative Garden Gates 2. Create A Sense Of Privacy ©Heather Wissman – stock.adobe.com The second of my secret garden design ideas is to create a sense of privacy. In Charleston, you can often see into the garden but rarely get to see the whole thing. Often the gates or peephole windows have wrought iron details that obscure the view even more. While wrought iron screens may be out of most people’s budgets (including mine!), you can accomplish a similar feel with any kind of divider that helps to obstruct the view. A lattice fence that partially encloses an area works well (like my mother has on one side of her deck). Plants can also create a great privacy screen. ©#moreideas – stock.adobe.com For a less permanent option, hang some curtains to create a secret garden room. Click HERE to find some more backyard privacy ideas. 3. Install Curved Paths ©Noel – stock.adobe.com Another way Charleston gardens create the feeling of mystery that makes a secret garden successful is to install curved garden paths. You can’t see exactly where it ends up…but it sure makes you want to find out! Click here to find some DIY garden path ideas. Pin It So You Don’t Forget It! 4. Make Sure There’s Enough Shade Seating in the shade The next one of my backyard secret garden ideas prevents the one thing that can ruin that special romantic feeling really quickly…having the hot sun beating down on your garden room all afternoon. If you are lucky enough to have trees providing shade for your seating area, you are ahead of the game. But if not, try to provide some man-made shade to keep your space cool and comfortable. You can find some DIY backyard shade ideas here. 5. Provide a Destination ©#moreideas – stock.adobe.com Although you don’t get to see the final destination of many of the Charleston garden paths, I can only imagine that it is somewhere worth going to. Which is why the next one of my secret garden design ideas is to provide a place to go to. Whether that’s a beautiful table for lunch or a place to put your feet up, providing a pretty and relaxing seating area is a must for creating a garden room in your backyard. You Might Also Like: Ideas For Creating A Relaxing Deck 6. Light It Up Charleston arbor Adding landscape lighting will make sure you get the most out of your backyard retreat. And make it even more romantic at night. Even in the evening, Charleston gardens have charm and it’s all about the lighting. I didn’t go so far as to invest in a gas lamp (although I would love to!), but landscape lighting can help any yard feel special at night. 7. Add Some Romance ©balashark – stock.adobe.com Finally, the last of my secret garden design ideas…a secret garden wouldn’t be a secret garden without some romantic touches (if you ask me). In Charleston, it’s kind of built into the whole city…the architecture, the lanterns, the wrought iron, the cobblestones…you get the idea. ©#moreideas – stock.adobe.com In our own yards, we probably have to put a little more work into creating a romantic environment. Whether it’s hanging outdoor chandeliers, using your crystal glasses outside or just lighting a few candles, the added touches are what will really make your secret garden feel special. Hopefully, you’ve found some inspiration to create your own secret garden using these design ideas inspired by the secret garden masters in Charleston. Pin It So You Don’t Forget It!

New 2019 Perennials and Shrubs This is one of my favorite times of the year. Not only because of the holiday season. But also because it’s the time of the year when all of the new plant varieties for next year are announced. So while taking a break from Christmas decorating, I decided to search for the new perennials and shrubs that are being introduced for 2019. It’s never too early to start my plant shopping list for the spring 🙂 From beautiful leaf colors to gorgeous fragrant flowers to re-blooming varieties, there are a lot of options to choose from this year! And I was happy to see a lot of blue and purple flowers on the list. Here are the plants that are on my list for the best new 2019 perennials and shrubs so far. I’ll be adding to it as I find new ones…so be sure to pin this so you can check back later! Best New 2019 Perennials Purple Leaf Coral Bells (Heuchera) Light: Part Shade to Shade Zones: 4 to 9 Height: 10″ to 14″ Flowers: white Bloom Time: Early to Mid Summer How stunning is this new 2019 variety of Heuchera called Dolce® Wildberry? The bright purple leaves will make a statement in your garden all season long! It also has white flowers with rosy pink calyxes which will be stunning against those leaves. Find out more.

This plant seems to thrive in poor soil conditions and is moderately drought tolerant once established. A great low maintenance addition to your garden. Find out more. Indigo Blue Catmint (Nepeta) Light: Sun Zones: 3 to 8 Height: 10″ to 14″ Flowers: Indigo blue Bloom Time: Late Spring to Mid Summer ‘Cat’s Pajamas’ Catmint is the next new 2019 perennial on our list. I think I need to buy it just because of the name 🙂 This plant has beautiful Indigo Blue flowers that are darker than your traditional catmint and bloom for quite a long time (especially if you shear it after it blooms the first time). It also is heat tolerant and drought tolerant, another low maintenance option for your garden. Find out more. Two Tone Pink Bee Balm (Monarda) Light: Part Sun to Sun Zones: 4 to 9 Height: 10″ to 14″ Flowers: Bright pink Bloom Time: Early to Mid Summer ‘Leading Lady Orchid’ Bee Balm is a dwarf variety that has two-toned pink flowers. It would be great for adding a pop of color to the front of your garden border. As with all Monarda, it is also a favorite with hummingbirds and butterflies. Find out more. Bright Pink Phlox Light: Sun Zones: 3 to 8 Height: 6″ to 8″ Flowers: Pink Bloom Time: Mid Spring Rose Sprite Hybrid Spring Phlox is the next addition to our 2019 new perennial list. It’s low growing and has gorgeous bright pink, fragrant flowers that will make a statement in the front of your border. This Phlox hybrid tolerates more shade than most other Phlox varieties, although it still does best in full sun. Find out more. Reblooming Salvia Light: Sun Zones: 3 to 8 Height: 14″ to 16″ Flowers: Violet Blue Bloom Time: Late Spring to Mid Summer Violet Profusion Perennial Salvia is a re-blooming plant with violet blue flowers. To me, the best perennials are the ones that bloom the longest. Which is why this re-blooming salvia is on my list of the best new perennials for 2019. Cutting it back after it has bloomed will help to promote new flowers. Find out more. Pin It So You Don’t Forget It! Best New 2019 Shrubs Re-blooming Dwarf Pink Lilac (Syringa) Light: Sun Zones: 3 to 7 Height: 30″ to 36″ Flowers: Pink Bloom Time: Late Spring to Fall Bloomerang® Dwarf Pink is only one of the cultivars of the re-blooming Boomerang series. Just imagine having those beautiful fragrant flowers in your garden all season long! I like this one because of its bright pink flowers and small bush size. However if you’re looking for a traditional purple flower or larger plants, they are also available. Find out more. Super Fragrant Double Blue Lilac (Syringa) Light: Sun Zones: 2 to 8 Height: 6′ to 8′ Flowers: Double blue Bloom Time: Spring Scentara® Double Blue Lilac is (as you might have guessed from the name) a very fragrant bush with double blue-purple flowers. It’s more of a traditional lilac than the last one, in that it blooms once during the spring and grows to 8′ tall and wide. However, it is a little more heat tolerant…so I will be definitely be trying this one in my SC garden! Find out more. Re-blooming Mountain Hydrangea (Hydrangea serrata) Light: Part Sun to Sun Zones: 5 to 9 Height: 24″ to 36″ Flowers: Blue or pink depending on soil acidity Bloom Time: Summer to Fall Did I mention that I love re-blooming plants? Tuff Stuff Ah-Ha® Reblooming Mountain Hydrangea is another of the new 2019 plants that is re-blooming. Having said that, I would buy this Hydrangea just for its beautiful double flowers that will be either blue or pink depending on the acidity of your soil (the more acidic your soil, the more blue the blooms will be). It also is quite low maintenance, not even requiring pruning. Find out more. Dwarf Butterfly Bush (Buddleia) Light: Sun Zones: 5 to 9 Height: 24″ Flowers: Purple Bloom Time: Early Summer to Fall Pugster® Amethyst Butterfly bush is a dwarf plant that produces full sized flowers in purple, blue, periwinkle, pink or white. I love this new variety because you get the small size (the standard sized Buddleia tend to get a little unruly in my garden), but don’t give up any of the bloom size. As with all butterfly bushes, it attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. Find out more. Pin It So You Don’t Forget It!
