Primitive country flowerbeds are an American classic. You can decorate your flowerbed in this style by selecting rustic decorations that will weather over time. Furniture and wooden objects such as cedar are ideal for primitive country flowerbeds because the wood can be left natural and it turns a gray silver when weathered. Metals such as copper will patina over time and decorations such as lanterns, birdbaths and weather vanes can add country charm to a flowerbed.
Things You'll Need
- Cedar garden bench
- Cedar wheelbarrow decoration
- Rustic wooden and metal wind chimes
- Copper birdbath
- Wooden carvings
Position a cedar garden bench next to the flowerbed. In addition to adding to the flowerbed decor, this will give you a place to sit and enjoy the flowers.
Place a rustic cedar wheelbarrow decoration in one corner of the flowerbed. You can plant flowers in it to use it as a planter or leave it plain.
Hang a primitive set of wood and metal wind chimes on an arbor or on a tree branch that borders the flowerbed.
Put a copper birdbath in your flowerbed. Copper develops a green patina over time that will complement the other primitive elements of the flowerbed.
Arrange wooden folk carvings such as garden gnomes or animals throughout the flowerbed. A whimsical frog or rabbit poking its head out of the flowers can add country charm to a flowerbed.
Tips & Warnings
- Look for antique agricultural items to place inside the flowerbed to add more interest to it.
