Add a gentle contrastThe lush planting of this wild garden is very gently punctuated by a blue painted bench in the distance. It creates a soft focal point amid all the green without jumping out at you, and perfectly suits the rambling, relaxed feel of this outdoor space.

Create a clearing under some treesIt seems obvious, but look around you and make the most of what you’ve got. If a clump of trees in your garden forms a natural canopy, clear an area underneath for picnics. It’s quick, and it won’t cost you a penny!

Keep it simple A mown path through a wooded patch and a sprinkling of cow parsley can be all you need, as this inviting garden shows. I love the idea of sitting here surrounded by wildlife and fruit trees in the dappled shade. Just perfect.TELL US…How do you cultivate your garden? Tell us in the Comments below.

Create a wild areaLeaving an area of grass to grow a little longer provides a sheltered habitat, so give your lawnmower a break and allow a patch of grass to grow. You’ll also support a wide range of other wildlife by doing this. See 12 more ways to create a wildlife-friendly garden

Wild flower could look good around trees at bottom of garden. Low maintenance and a cost effective planting solution.

Ha! A beautiful mowed path. So simple, and easy to maintain since there are no edges that have to be weed-whacked.

Bench. The treatment of the grass in this orchard is a great example of how changing mowing patterns can create a meadow lawn. The paths are still closely cut while the squares under the trees have converted to meadow, with an abundance of flowering grasses and the lacy flowers of cow parsley (Anthriscus sylvestris).
