The wildly colourful, free and naturalistic approach and of all the hundreds of landscape design styles, this is Ursula Phillips, (Owner of Green Creations Landscaping’s) personal favourite!


Wild & Carefree?

A wild garden design style is a type of landscape design that incorporates natural elements and indigenous plants to create an untamed, organic and unstructured look. It is a style that seeks to emulate the beauty of nature and recreate it in a managed environment. Wild garden design is an excellent way to create an eco-friendly and sustainable garden, perfect for those who value the environment and appreciate nature.

Doesn’t it just take you back to reading ‘ The Secret Garden’? & discovering the adventures that hid within the untamed landscapes?



The goal of wild garden design is to create a harmonious relationship between the garden and the surrounding environment. The aim is to mimic the look of a natural habitat while still maintaining a manageable garden. In a wild garden design, the plants are left to grow freely, creating a sense of randomness and wildness.

One of the key elements of wild garden design is the use of native plants. This is because indigenous plants are best adapted to the local environment and are often low maintenance, making them ideal for a wild garden design. When selecting plants for a wild garden design, consider plants with multiple seasons of interest such as spring flowers, summer berries, and fall foliage.
Another important aspect of wild garden design is the use of natural materials such as stone, wood, and water. These elements add texture, depth and interest to the garden, and help to create a connection to the surrounding environment. The use of water features such as streams, ponds, and waterfalls are also popular in wild garden design, as they provide habitat for wildlife and can be a focal point for the garden.

In a wild garden design, there is no need for a strict layout, paths or borders. The idea is to let the garden grow and evolve organically, while still maintaining a sense of balance and harmony. A wild garden design may also include elements such as rock formations, woodland areas and meadows, which add to the overall natural feel of the garden.

The beauty of this style is that it provides the perfect opportunity to showcase the diversity and beauty of different plants, creating a garden that is truly one-of-a-kind. Whether it’s an informal mix of wildflowers, grasses, and shrubs, or a more structured design featuring a variety of different plants and textures, the wild garden is a celebration of the natural world.



When it comes to creating a wild garden, the key is to let nature take its course. This means that the garden is often less manicured and more organic, allowing plants to grow and spread as they wish. The result is a lush, vibrant, and thriving garden that is full of life and energy.

Finally, it is important to remember that a wild garden design is not a no-maintenance garden. Regular pruning, mulching, and weeding is still required to keep the garden looking its best. However, the aim is to create a garden that is low maintenance, and that requires minimal intervention to maintain its beauty.

In conclusion, a wild garden design style is a unique and beautiful way to create an eco-friendly and sustainable garden. By incorporating native plants, natural materials, and a random yet balanced design, a wild garden design will provide you with a space that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
