70s garden style and trends explained by award winning designer Paul Hervey-Brookes.
The 70s garden is an oasis of rich planting. Think glossy evergreen shrubs like Fatsia and glossy perennials like Bergenia. Mix in a few richly coloured classic hybrid teas for a bold look.
The 70s garden combined rich planting with detailed landscaping on a scale never seen before. Rope coil paving stones, rich patterns and coloured man-made paving stones will bring the feel to life. Paint pergolas and furniture white to create the bold look of the 70s or mix in curved plastic moulded forms to get the groove on.
Outdoor lighting is something which really came to life in the 70s garden. Uplighting trees and feature shrubs brings a sense of the cosmopolitan to the garden and often this would be combined with open weaver fencing to create mystery and a desire to see in.
