Why be boring and plant flowers in your average oblong or circular flower garden? With the variety of flower seeds and bulbs you can get from Eden Brothers, you can create a truly unique flower garden that will cause your neighbors to turn green with envy. Give one of these quirky flower garden ideas a try and watch your garden become the talk of the town.
If you have an old car that’s just sitting around rusting in your driveway or garage, why not turn it into a fantastic retro flower garden? Remove the engine and other inner parts under the hood and replace them with a container that will allow you to plant colorful flowers that spill out from the engine compartment. Do the same thing with the trunk of the car and strategically place pots on the seats and floorboards so the flowers are pouring out the windows and sneaking under the doors.
Even if you don’t have an old vehicle that you want to convert to a flower garden, you can easily find a gutted car in a junkyard for a reasonable price. A Volkswagen Bug from the 1960s or 1970s would make an ideal retro flower power mobile.
Cinder Block Spruce Up
Cinder blocks weren’t meant to be aesthetically pleasing. These rectangular gray rock-like structures were designed to be functional and not much else. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t spruce them up with some flowers. The gray color of the cinder blocks contrasts nicely with brightly colored flowers and because the blocks are already sectioned in two, you have the makings of ideal planters. When you line up cinder blocks and even stack them in a stair step manner, you’ll have created a modern looking flower garden out of very common material.
Rubber Tire Recycling
You don’t have to toss those old car tires into the landfill. You can repurpose them as flower pots that will give off a trendy vibe once they are covered with a coat or two of brightly-colored paint. Strategically place your painted tires around your yard and fill them with topsoil and a variety of wildflowers. The tire itself will act as a barrier to hold the soil in so that your flowers get as many nutrients as possible.
Overturned Buckets and Barrels
A whimsical flower garden design is to plant your flowers as if they are flowing from an overturned bucket, barrel, or other type of container. This idea looks great with multicolored flowers or a monochromatic theme. Just be sure to plant some in the bucket or barrel as well as in a haphazard manner on the ground in front of the overturned container. This will make it look like they spilled out of the bucket or barrel and turned your yard into a vibrant flower garden.
These are just a few ideas on how you can create a quirky and fun flower garden that is far from your run-of-the-mill design. There are plenty of other creative ideas to showcase your gorgeous blooms. Just think outside of the box and have fun with it!
