Utilizing Bare Walls
If you have any walls adjacent to your garden, then that is a great space for climbing vines to flourish and add abundantly to your green décor. Vines like – Sweet pea, star jasmine, Rangoon creeper, Morning Glory, Mandevilla, Honeysuckle, Bougainvillea, and Fire Cracker Vine can greatly transform your garden. Roping mechanisms and trellis arrangements across the length of the wall are needed for such plants.

So, take extra steps in making them take up the desired route. Smaller space and intensive trellis would give out lush vibes.
Incorporating Hanging Plants
From the wall, you can hang a huge variety of plants that will appear pretty and dangle once in a while when it is windy. Flowering ones, especially, twinkle like the wind chimes! Plants like Arrowhead plant, English Ivy, String of Pearls, Mistletoe Cactus, Soleirolia, and Creeping Fig will become a great addition f more texture and color.

Donning more contrast will transform your garden for sure!
