Get The Cottage Garden Look

Jennifer Howard | Cottage on Bunker Hill

Today I am going to share a few of my tips for creating a cottage style garden this year. This look combines using vintage pieces and lots of flowers.

Cottage Garden Planters

To create a cottage look in the corner of my garden I nestled 3 large planters and filled them with seasonal flowers.  Added a cute bunny statue and tied a ripped fabric ribbon for a rustic look.

Easy Topiary Look

I took apart an old grapevine wreath and crisscrossed pieces in a planter.  It is perfect for lavender!

DIY Garden Project:


Cottage Garden Tower

 The base of this tower is the cheapest tomato support you can find!  Black-eyed Susan vine is a pretty climbing flower for a cottage garden.


 Add Vintage Pieces

Check out a vintage market or antique mall for metal garden topiaries or other pieces that will add character to your cottage garden.

Tuck in a wooden bench somewhere to admire your garden.


 Add A Garden Wreath

Hang a garden related wreath by your garden.
