Try adding some natural elements to the garden, which can also make the place, look amazing.

• Practical decoration with these succulent plants

If you thought that plants in the home have to be ornamental all the time, you are mistaken. Try planting plants which have healing properties or which are used in aromatherapy. Some of the best examples in this regard include chamomile or aloe plant. If there is no space for planting these in the soil, you can use planters and pots for the same and hang them. On the whole, a rustic ambience is created with such a setup. However, the whole idea is quite modern.

• Using ferns for creating the green wall

This setup is just perfect for homes with modern settings. Using ferns is a great way of decking up the modern house. The best thing about this décor that any part of the house can be decorated with the same. Vertical gardens can be created on the wall of the structure by making holes on the façade. Different kinds of ferns can be used in this setup. The best and most important thing is that these plants do not need immense care.

• Small shrubs and palm trees

Isn’t it quite obvious that you choose the plant for your garden while thinking of the place where it will be planted? This is because you need to have an understanding as how much space the plant will need to flourish and prosper properly. If there is not enough space, the plant might dry as it will not be able to spread its roots. Again, there are trees which have very strong roots, which can cause damage to the house structure. If there are problems, it is recommended to settle for small plants with colorful flowers and few small palm trees. This setup is perfect from the sense of aesthetics and from the point of protecting the house structure.

• Pines with minimalistic design

Houses with minimalistic design should have a garden which matches the settings of the place. And for this, there is no better option that choosing pine trees. Pines are great from two aspects – they look more elegant and secondly, their shape can be delimited. Along with the pine trees, various kinds of colors, neutral shades and textures can be added to the space to make it look more sophisticated.

• Herbs which give wild and modern appearance

When you want to give your garden a wild, yet modern appearance, you can choose from the wide varieties of herbs available. Grasses from Pampa, tail of plumerillos and tail of fox are some of the most common herbs used. These herbs look excellent and grow wildly and fast. Moreover, they don’t need much care and maintenance and fill up empty spaces quickly. With these herbs in place, you will not need many other plants in the garden.

• Perfect pasture

Grass is probably the best vegetation for garden décor. Lush green grass forms the best base for any garden.
