Using Paint in the Garden
Add a punch of color to your outdoor space without using plants! Staining a fence or painting some pots or window boxes in bright, bold hues brings a whole new look and whimsy to the garden. (Hey, no one said that picket fence had to be white!) Of course, not all colors create the same effect. The key is to consider how your chosen hue will look in your growing area year-round. Here are some ideas to get you thinking about what color might work best for you and your landscape.
Few cultures put color to better use than those living south of the border, where bright-colored paint brings outdoor spaces into a whole new light. Even if you’re on a tight budget, you can transform your everyday garden into a bright and happy fiesta for an affordable price. (Remember that when it comes to intense color, a little goes a long way!) Get inspired by the vivid colors of Mexico and learn how to take your outdoor living space from “humdrum” to “south-of-the-border wow!”
