“There’s no palette as rich as a garden.” - Robert Irwin

Gardening is an inherently natural way to breathe life into the spaces you call home. Whether you’re planting peonies for spring in the backyard or considering your first indoor garden, this Saturday, April 14 - National Gardening Day - is the perfect opportunity to find inspiration. 

Discover three ways to indulge in the celebration, while treating your home to a few fresh elements.

Create an eye-catching pathway for family and guests with an outdoor paved area guided by harmonious flowers, plants, or trees. Plant peonies or candytufts for a pop of color, or trees for an added layer of privacy in a backyard. If you enjoy cooking, consider an herb garden for the freshest tastes. HGTV dives into 15 more ideas for landscaping outdoors.

If you prefer more low-maintenance elements or simply want to bring green design indoors, consider a rejuvenating houseplant along your windowsill, entryway, or even master bath. From Chinese evergreen to succulents to cacti, there are an array of options to match your home’s aesthetic. To enhance a natural design, introduce organic elements like apples for additional pops of green.
