Com­pose an artis­tic vista

Garden News (UK) - - Garden Of The Week -

Think of your gar­den as a pic­ture. Monet’s sub­jects in­cluded softly bil­low­ing bor­ders, pretty ar­bours clothed in climbers; his pink house with green shut­ters at the end of a long, fab­u­lously flo­ral path and a lit­tle boat moored in the lily pond. Add your own fo­cal points – a brightly coloured bridge, build­ing or even a bench in the dis­tance draws the eye, while soft pinks and blues are char­ac­ter­is­tic of Nor­mandy. Bor­row­ing sur­round­ing land­marks or trees can ex­tend your gar­den into the dis­tance.

How would your per­fect gar­den paint­ing look? Think like an artist!
