Interior designer and gardening expert Maryline Damour shared her top tips to ensure your garden looks like a ship in all seasons.

Speaking to House Beautiful, she said: “Like many elements in my garden, I made the fence structure around it both decorative and functional.

“I plant climbing vegetables and flowers near the fence so that it can support them during the growing season.”

She also pointed out that when it snows, the fence creates something beautiful to look at when everything else is covered.

Next, Maryline suggested that your garden appeal to multiple senses.

She said, “While you probably ticked off the smell in the spring and summer, think about the sound in the colder months: pea gravel is a great design element that appeals to many senses in the garden.

“It changes color when it rains, crunches when you run, and feels great when gardening barefoot (totally a thing … or should be!). Every few years we add fresh bluestone gravel to add to it keep looking good. “

Finally, the expert encouraged the gardeners to get creative and decorate their outdoor space.

Maryline suggested lighting it just like you would indoors.

She said: “I have a combination of solar-powered lanterns and electricity in the garden. This means that I can have a good time in the garden even when the days are getting shorter.”

She added, “If you have raised beds this is another opportunity to decorate the garden. We used wood for our boxes and made metal corner brackets (purely decorative) that I left out in the rain to rust for a rough finish. The texturing of nature! “
