Gardens are one of life’s simple pleasures that provide you with both beauty and fulfilment. From getting your hands dirty creating something with nature to relaxing out by your flowers and plants, gardens can bring you joy and help make your home look gorgeous.

Themed gardens have become increasingly common as a unique way to style your outside space, and the nautical theme has always been a popular garden style that never seems to go out of fashion.

Nautical Themed Gardens

The nautical theme is suitable not just for people living near the coast, but for all people who have a love of the ocean and sea even if they live somewhere landlocked.

Nautical themed gardens can bring your love of the coast right to your doorstep and there are several easy ways to get started:

  • Consider the types of plants that you see by the ocean and find similar ones that will thrive in your garden.
  • Search the internet for some inspiration – Pinterest is always a good start.
  • Visit your local garden centre and ask for advice on which plants match the nautical garden aesthetic.

Using Nautical Accessories in your Garden

Using themed accessories can be a great way to dress the garden and tie into the nautical theme. It is also a low-maintenance way to really create a seaside feel in your outdoor space. Incorporate garden accessories artfully arranged in your flower beds. Or add some ocean-inspired colours to sheds, fences or decking. Check out our blog post on coastal design trends.

Of course the ultimate nautical accessory is made from rope! This is because nautical accessories, such as the rope door stops that we sell, are made using designs that date back to Nelson’s time. Sailors on Nelson’s ships would have made similar accessories for their loved ones whilst away at sea for long periods – the hearth rope brush is a good example of a nautical historic rope knot.
