There is just one choice if you want your garden to be chic this year, and its 70s boho. Yes, that’s right, it’s all about combining retro style with lush tropical planting to create an oasis of calm in your own backyard, something a good ISA Certified Arborist will definitely be able to help you with. A task you can find out all about how to complete in the post below.
Lush tropical greenery
Just like with any garden, the first step in achieving a 70’s boho style jungle is the planting. In fact, you need to look for tropical style plants in lush and deep greens to achieve the right effect.
Happily, palms like Monstera are readily available now. They can even be grown in pots if you choose. This being something that means you have the option of moving them from the outside to the inside. Either because of the weather or for design purposes.
Of course, if you are going to rely primarily on potted plants in your boho style garden, you will need to start with the right foundation. This is, of course, a patio, something that makes the perfect base in the case because it is much better suited to pots and garden furniture than a lawn.
Obviously, for many people, that will mean digging up any lawn they have. While others will need to get rid of plants that aren’t thriving or do not fit in with their overall jungle theme. Happily, doing so isn’t as difficult as you might think. In fact, if you consider hiring a bin for all your green waste, you can get rid of everything in one go. Something that will make the whole job more manageable, and quicker too. Therefore allowing you to get your patio down and on with the rest of the project fast.

Once you have your planting sorted, it’s time to give some more thought to how you will use your garden space, and what furniture will be best suited to your needs. Of course, here you will have a choice between chairs, outdoor sofas, tables, and the like. Just be sure to opt for wicker or bamboo finish for that authentic 70’s vibe.
Hippy chic decor
Finally, it’s time to dress your garden area. A task that many people aren’t even aware that they can do. However, it is totally possible to include decor pieces out of doors. In fact, they can really enhance the ambiance you create!
One essential piece for your boho-chic style garden is a rug that you can place in the center of the space underneath the furniture. Additionally, pieces such as throws and cushions with pom poms and tassels can work very well to create a 70’s vibe too.
Just be sure to choose either a more neutral pallet for a more relaxing space or a brighter one for a funkier invigorating look. The latter being an option that can contrast particularly well with the deep greens in your boho jungle style garden.
