Let's be totally honest and admit that when it comes to giving our gardens a bit more life and vibrancy, we all just tend to plump for the most colorful flowers that we can find. It can't just be us that does that, surely? We all want a beautiful garden, but so often our own efforts fall a little flat and that can be demoralizing! Unless you're a professional gardener, however, you might be choosing the wrong flowers or even varieties that will be a nightmare to look after and you'll never know until you get them home and have to put your social life on hold to commit to a regular watering schedule! We want to give you some really cool ways to add color, style and fun into your garden, without the hassle of high-maintenance plants, so stick to your fabulous, easy to care for varieties and accessorize them with a few of these…

1. Colorful plant pots are a great place to start and you can either buy some or paint your existing ones.

2. A piquant strip of accent color on a garden wall will add new life to your garden.

3. How about printing some fabric planters of your own? It's so easy!

4. Don't be afraid to experiment with fabric in your garden! Rugs can make great wall tapestries!
