Gardens with nostalgic charm radiate one thing above all else: personality. An old bicycle climbed up with climbing plants, leaning against the tree in the front yard. A wooden ladder with a few missing sprouts on the terrace serves as a flower etagere and a richly decorated, somewhat rusty iron garden chair adorns the flowerbed - all things that at first glance do not have much value, but their owners mean more than some designer piece,
With much love, decorative pieces, furniture or utensils from bygone days are selected and integrated in suitable places in the garden. On closer inspection, they tell exciting stories from their "lives". You can often find something in your own attic or in grandmother's old closet. You can also buy a lot at the flea market or at the junk dealer. Some vendors have even specialized in making new items with a lot of reconstruction work "old".
Water jug and milk jug made of enamel can sometimes be found in grandmother's kitchen cupboard. Now they come as a vase for phlox, zinnias and jewelry baskets to new honors. The fact that vessels and table have traces of use, makes their charm from
Nostalgic gardens are more individual
The nostalgia trend has lately become increasingly mixed with rural garden design - two styles that can be wonderfully combined. Many farmer garden plants adorned the flower beds to great-grandmother's times and complement with their lovely colors and flower shapes the nostalgic eye-catching. A flowery bouquet of roses, carnations and cornflowers in an enamel milk can or the large-flowered flaming flowers and dahlias that lean against the rusty garden fence, provide a very special flair. A mix of materials from wood, metal, enamel, porcelain or zinc is quite desirable - only plastic has to look for the rural-nostalgic garden rather nothing.

Just in the barn, now as a floral decoration on the terrace: An old-style wooden ladder can also be easily assembled by yourself. It is always an eye-catcher with hanging baskets differently planted according to the season
Tension through material mix
A mix of styles through the past decades - as in the vintage look of the fashion world - is allowed and provides variety. As always, less is often more, because you're tempted to overload the garden. Whether the planted old chest of drawers on the terrace, the old sewing machine under the apple tree or the ornate candelabra above the patio table - what seems to be a coincidence, was searched, found and placed with love. And that is exactly what makes the journey into the past in the garden so unique.
