Romantic Garden Ideas For Couples Who Want To Spend Time Together

As time goes by, it can be hard to make time for romance; particularly if you have children, sometimes it’s just not on the card. However there are ways that you can bring the spark back into your relationship, and you need look no further than your own garden for ideas! Here are some romantic garden ideas for couples who want to spend more time together.

Some Really Romantic Garden Ideas

Screening or Fencing

No one wants to share their romantic nights in the garden with their next door neighbours, so make sure that you have privacy by getting adequate fencing installed, or temporary screening if this is too expensive an option to consider at the moment (or if it’s not your fence!). A list of plants which are perfect for screening can be found here.

Plant Roses

OK, it could be a little bit cliché but… Roses are the most romantic of all the flowers, which is why they’re really expensive on Valentine’s Day. You can grow your own roses; climbing roses over an arbour, a bush, rambling roses or tea roses, they all look wonderful and are really hardy too. The Christmas rose (Helleborus) is a perennial flower that blooms in winter which will mean your garden looks romantic even in the frost!

Get The Right Furniture

Perhaps the most obvious of romantic garden ideas; if you can, opt for garden furniture where you can sit together rather than spread apart. A rattan garden sofa with comfy cushions or loveseat bench are perfect for spending time together, talking or even reading a book in each other’s company.

Install a Pond or Water Feature

A water feature or a garden pond is just a lovely addition to any garden. I don’t know if it’s the noise the trickling water makes but, particularly if it’s lit up, the water makes a very romantic centrepiece. Sit around it on your loveseat or bench with a cup of coffee in the morning, or a glass of wine in the evening.

Mood Lighting

In the evening as it gets dark, you want to be able to see what you’re doing, but not feel like you’re being startled by a security light. Having solar lights in your garden which charge up by day time and emit light when it gets dark, or even twinkly fairy lights can light your path without being overwhelming or annoying.

A Fire Pit

A fire pit is a lovely central hub to sit around as the weather gets cooler. Bring blankets, and have hot chocolate or hot toddies while roasting marshmallows.

Somewhere to Eat and Drink Together

You might already have family outdoor furniture, but a little bistro set is perfect just for two. Take your morning coffee, breakfast, lunch, dinner or glass of wine out into the garden and enjoy the fresh air while you chat and re-connect without worrying about the dishes needing to be washing inside the house.

A Garden Room

And finally! A garden room can really bring back the romance into your life. Particularly if you have kids, a garden room is somewhere to get away from the noise or mess and turn your brains off from it all. You can sit together and snuggle, or if you’re more adventurous maybe even a sex room with some fun toys for when the mood strikes; you can take inspiration from the latest hit Netflix series!
