August. The middle of the Summer, when plants and flowers are in full bloom, the sun is shining (hopefully) and everything has just so much more colour.
The garden is a space in which you’re likely to spend much of your time during the summer, so it is very important to ensure this is a space in which you feel comfortable and happy to be in. One way of doing this is to make your garden a colour creation. Filling your garden with colourful, scentful plants, trees and accessories will ensure that your garden is a sensory experience that has the power to contribute to a healthier, happier life.
Adding a Foras garden feature is a brilliant way to add colour and interest to a space. Our sandstone features have a beautiful unique pattern that is not only colourful, but will take the centre stage of your garden. By immersing these incredible features within your plants and trees, this will create a beautiful natural element of your garden that is still incredibly impressive to look at!
Adding bright blooming flowers to your garden is a quick and easy way to add colour to the space. The Gladiolus is actually the flower of the month, and is a beautiful choice for your flower bed. However if you’re really looking to make things look bright and attract attention, the Dahlias are a must have. Dramatic colours and shapes like the cactus type below make this flower a brilliant addition.
With the warm summer evenings, this also brings more time to sit outside and enjoy your home and garden. A patio finished with Foras tiles, will add an elegant area for you to relax and recharge your batteries. We think the Mandolin Beige Porcelain tiles are a brilliant choice for your garden area, as they are a beautiful neutral colour that looks amazing contrasted against green grass and bright plants.
Additionally, adding a feature that looks beautiful in the day aswell as night is a brilliant idea for making your garden the perfect space to relax in. Our Fusion water feature has an incredible internal fountain light that creates an almost magical glow both during the day and at night time. These features look amazing when immersed within bright plants, but can also look beautiful when used as a standalone feature in your garden, as seen in our customers garden below.
The garden is a place in which should feel like your home, but outside. It should be comfortable enough to relax in and recharge your batteries, but also be somewhere that you are proud to show off to friends and family. Adding features that stand out individually but also beautifully complement each other will create an amazing sensory experience.
