Welcome to the garden era of your life!

You’re obsessed with plants and spending time outside tending to your greens. You may even be looking for ways to keep your outdoor and indoor styles cohesive. Shea Homes® is here to let you know that whatever your home design aesthetic is—modern, minimalist, eclectic, bohemian—you can extend it beyond your doors. In today’s blog, we’ll show you how to let your style bloom!

Find Your Gar-Zen

With the right backyard, you don’t have to go far to escape, rejuvenate, and reset. Your own outdoor space can be a place of peace for you and your family. Like most things in life, all your backyard needs is some tender love and care. Low-maintenance succulents are a great starter plant for your garden, and allow you to enjoy their beauty without a lot of hard work. Don’t be afraid to get creative with hardscaping details, like a water feature or inspiring sculptures. You can also designate a space that is just for your meditation, yoga, or breathing exercises. Add a plain grass patch, concrete slab, or bamboo slats and surround it with rocks and lush greenery. Design your yard in such a way that your staycation is only steps away.

Cottage to the Core

If your home decor vibe is more in line with your favorite childhood fairytale, then let your garden reflect your love for birds, roses, and all things charming. You can achieve this look with an arched trellis, stone raised garden beds, and a bird bath. Grow climbing roses, wisteria, geraniums, delphiniums, hollyhocks, and peonies for that perfect storybook look. Consider adding a bench so you can have a space to sit, read, contemplate, and feel like royalty.

Modern Farmhouse for Modern Times

A steel raised garden bed, a black iron trellis, and a rustic wood bench will help you extend your modern farmhouse look throughout your yard. Want to live this aesthetic more authentically sans shrieking rooster and dirty work? Plant some vegetable and fruit seeds in your modern garden bed. You’ll be the host with the most, impressing your dinner guests with a farm-to-table meal made with ingredients straight from your backyard.

Boho Vibes All Around

Give your backyard the laid back, free-spirited makeover it’s been needing, so that it matches your comfortable interior decor. Make your outdoor space as dreamy as you want with patterned rugs, twinkling lights, and robust foliage. If you want to take it to the next step, try making your garden a certified wildlife habitat to attract butterflies, birds, and other friendly critters. You’ll love the mood you’ve curated in this earthy part of your home.
