Most people strive to visit this marvelous Indonesian gem, but not any have the opportunity to do so. If you own a lush backyard, you can easily transform it into holistic, nature-inspired, tropical heaven just like the oasis you would find on Bali. With a significant budget, you can place numerous crafty Balinese elements, tropical native, private plunge pools, and other décor ideas in your backyard to channel this majestical vibe. Here are some rather nifty ways to have a verdant and luxurious garden that mimics the “island of the Gods”.
- Plant lush flowers
The easiest way for a Balinese garden transformation is to plant luscious flowering plants all over your garden. Instead of flower beds, I tried using a range of single-based plants, various flowers, and planters and it completely transformed my garden. You can also plant them in hand-made pottered pots that come in different shapes and sizes. If you are in doubt which flowers to choose, consider some of the authentic Balinese ones like jasmine, lotus lilies, frangipani, desert roe, orchids, or bougainvillea. As long as you have a lot of greeneries and beautifully colored accents, you will have a perfect Balinese outdoor area.
- Add holistic ornaments
Bali exudes some sacred and tranquil vibe that makes it a unique Pacific gem-like any other island on the globe. Place some Hindu or Buddhist statues that evoke calmness and serenity. Adding timid details like decoration made of natural elements will make your garden area seem closer to their culture and tradition. For instance, I loved this carved animal skull that looks chic and modern on one hand but the other rather vintage and natural.
- Invite a shady tropical feel
Something that separates Bali from all other islands is its fabulous green foliage which you must incorporate in your garden. In my garden for that matter, I’ve added bamboo trees that now also serve as a fantastic fence cover plus it is perfect for screening. Other tropical plants are banana trees, ferns, or palms. The best thing about those planters is that they love the sun but they don’t mind cold weather, and they make a great shade. You only need to water them once a week, but only when it comes to palms, makes sure you choose ones that thrive in your local climate.
- Opt for natural furniture pieces
A real Balinese garden design ought to offer intimacy and peace, so forget about loudspeakers, metal grill, or any other contemporary utilities. For a matching Balinese garden try using only natural materials. If you wish to get authentic Balinese manufactured furniture, look closely if it’s made of materials like bamboo, mahogany, timber, stone, thatch. I got a nice hanging chair and decorated it with a linen pillow. Your Balinese garden should be a place where you can resort to after a long and tiring day, meditate and be free. Place scented candles weaved lanterns or torches.
- Incorporate the water element
Just as greenery plays a vital role, the same is with water. If you truly want to create a gorgeous Balinese ambient, you simply must incorporate some water features to it. The best, most lucrative, and most dazzling way to do so is to place a Balinese Buddha fountain or some other stone motif one. As the water element is the focal source of Balinese culture, having a small fountain in your garden will exude relaxation and calmness. If you don’t perfect to hear splashing water sounds, you can then make a little pond, place big stones around it and even add various fish.
Spruce up your gardening space with the above-mentioned Balinese decorative ideas, and the final result will blow your mind. Analyze your garden area meticulously and budget everything accordingly.
