Do you know what a farm garden means from today's perspective? A place full of peace and relaxation, a green oasis where you can feel the nature firsthand.

- Informally deal with the garden design ,
Farmers' gardens may look messy or not professionally designed for many people. In fact, they are usually full of lush vegetation, beautiful garden plants and greenery. To get that all-natural look, avoid planting in straight lines or following well-defined patterns. Let your garden flowers and green plants fall freely over wavy paths and grow cluttered. This picture adds to the charm of the cottage garden.

Cottage gardens are nothing new in garden design, on the contrary, they are a well-tried old garden form. They are usually filled with the same traditional favorite plants and wonderfully fragrant flowers that your grandmother cared for as well. Some popular examples include peony, foxglove, snapdragon, pansy, columbines, heart flower and rose mallow.

- Choose comfortable retro-style furniture
Turn your cottage garden into an outdoor space by adding comfortable retro-style furniture or making your own from reclaimed wood. Avoid anything contemporary. Instead, look for wicker or metal furniture, perhaps colorful painted chairs would also be in the right place. The individual pieces of furniture do not necessarily have to fit together: this is just one part of the charming farm garden design. An eclectic mix fits right in it.
