Other Eclectic Garden Episodes

Vertical Bucket Garden

Eclectic Garden: Vertical Bucket Garden (VIDEO)

The first episode is all about making your own vertical garden using empty and clean Boysen buckets. Recycle these durable buckets after you finish painting your garden wall. This is a very good tip for any gardener, especially those with a limited garden space.

The fresh herbs available in grocery stores are trucked in from far-away places so chances are you’re going to get tired-looking herbs. They’re expensive too.

Planting herbs in hanging pots save space, ensures that you will always have fresh herbs on hand when you want to give extra oomph to the slow food you want to feed your family, help save money on your grocery bill, and lastly, adds an interesting feature to your garden.

Garden Wall Mural

Paint a mural on your garden wall, and give this exterior space your own unique stamp.

For Pete’s garden, check out the color swatches above.

Another way to choose your palette is to pick out 2 or more colors from the palettes you will find in the Boysen Color Trend website. On the upper right of the page you will find a dropdown menu for the color trends from the previous years starting from 2015.

In 2015, we came up with the Naturist palette with mostly green and brown colors, and a deep, rich red for contrast. Don’t use the red if you have flowers in your garden which you want to showcase.

Don’t stop at 2015 though, because all the years have beautiful color palettes you can choose from. If you’re not so color savvy, then you can select your colors from one palette. All palettes have been curated to ensure that the colors mix well with the other hues.
