How To Create A Feature Wall In Your Garden

garden feature wall

Do you have a feature wall in your home? A garden feature wall can change the appearance of your garden and improve the outlook your entire landscape. As much as the colour of your feature wall matters, you still need to consider other factors. From this guide, you are going to learn what makes the ideal feature wall for your garden.

Feature walls that are found indoors should have a bright colour of your choice while outdoor feature walls should compliment and contrast other walls outdoors. 

A feature wall can be wallpaper that is photorealistic and can make room to appear larger than the way it should be.

You should make outdoor feature walls using weather resistant materials. With a garden feature wall, try to be more creative and make it more three dimensional than an indoor feature wall.

You can use recycled materials to create an outdoor feature wall. You can decorate it especially if it is going to serve a practical purpose.


What are some free feature wall materials you can use?

When choosing outdoor feature wall materials, you should want what is resistant to weather. Below are some of those materials.

  • Plants
  • Paint
  • Timber
  • Metal
  • Stone

If you want a perfect modern backyard, choose a shiny metallic surface. You can also ensure that you have a vertical garden and combine it with another material to improve the aesthetic appearance of your landscape.

Mirrors can also create nice feature walls so long as you don’t put them in a location that faces the sun.


How to use splashes of colour in an outdoor feature wall

If you want to change the outlook of your outdoor feature wall, consider using splashes of colour to create an attractive feature wall. You can use white colour if you don’t like a primary colour. Use a different colour like grey on its backdrop.

A bright colour makes your exterior wall on your patio to feel cheerier. Bright colours still fit areas that are going to be exposed to direct sunlight.

You can select a colour that compliments your plants, but you should find pots that compliment the colour scheme you choose. If you want a touch of brightness, select large pots in a contrasting or similar colour.


How can you light the garden feature walls?


You need a well placed outdoor garden lighting to make your wall look great at night. Outdoor lighting can be used for decorative purposes. You can place it such that the shadows and light highlight a sculpture house in a feature wall.

You can also place your outdoor lighting near the ground and highlight your walls and plants. A garden feature wall can change the appearance of your outdoor spaces making your home glow with beauty.
