A walled garden is a classic addition to any backyard. Not only does it increase your privacy, but it also provides you with a quiet, serene space to spend your free time. Brick is one of the best materials to create walled garden designs with. Not only is it extremely durable and resistant to fire, wind, and water, but it also looks very classic and stylish. When creating a walled garden, you have many different design options to choose from. You can be as creative as you want to make your own unique landscape. Here are some design ideas to get you started.
If you have a small space to work with, one of the best ways to add foliage is to create a vertical garden. There are many ways you can do this – you can build in square or rectangular frames for your plants to grow on, hang them in pots, or just let them run wild. The classic look of ivy growing on a brick wall always looks lovely.
Use Breeze Blocks
When creating a garden with a high brick wall, one of the biggest concerns is blocking out too much light and airflow. There is an easy fix for this: Breeze Blocks. This will allow more light and breeze to flow into your garden, and you can turn it into a vertical garden using vines or air plants.
Create an interesting path
To add some contrast to a large back garden, build some small brick walls and paths within the larger walled garden. It will break up the look of the plants, and gives guests an indication of where to walk when spending time in the garden. These small walls are very easy to build yourself with just some bricks and mortar.
Create some dimension
If your backyard is flat, you can add dimension to it with a sunken garden or patio. Start by digging a hole, and then add bricks and plants, as well as some places to sit. This will also help to create cool entertaining spaces during blazingly hot summers.
Create usable spaces
If your backyard is on a hill, you can create a walled garden with several terraces. This is an extensive project, but significantly increases the value of your property as it will create usable spaces in your backyard where you can socialise and relax.
Walled garden designs don’t have to be restrictive. Get creative and get started on a project that will leave you with a unique and comfortable space to spend your time.
