Celebrate color. Color is of utmost importance to the whimsical gardener. In this gardener’s mind, color is fun, festive and playful. Whereas some gardeners prefer to blend subtle tones in their spaces, the whimsical gardener generally follows the mantra, “The more and the brighter, the better.”This garden proudly displays its colors and stripes. The array of bright hues and the informal bench seating give this space a childlike, playful vibe. What makes this space work? The bright colors were applied on similar vertical surfaces, creating a rhythm that brings continuity to this part of the garden. In addition, the foliage is entirely shades of green. This tones down the space. Can you imagine this scene with chartreuse or red foliage?

As long as we’re thinking of walls as art, why not stop by the paint store and have some fun? This eclectic, giddy wood fence illustrates how recycled boards take on new life when you unleash your imagination and untether your paintbrush. See if there are existing materials in your garden you can put back into service with a sprinkling of imagination.

Sometimes it's good to step back from reality and use color just for the fun of it. The use of the Matisse style of color on this hardscape — fencing, seating, wall and even the birdhouse — is balanced by the simple, almost random planting of the garden.Event: Matisse comes to the Met. From early December 2012 through March 2013, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York is holding an exhibition, "Matisse: In Search of True Painting," which will explore the artist's techniques.More: Lessons From Monet's Garden

Standard garden features, such as this bench, take on new life with a bright color. The coordinating spikes beyond in the planting bed ensure that this garden corner will not be overlooked.

Salvaged boards. A variety of used boards bring bright color to this garden fence and bench. The jagged edge gives trees and shrubs a sculptural backdrop.

Backyards tend to be more casual spaces, so they’re a spot to really let loose. Express your color creativity by painting your fence and benches different colors, and add bright accessories to liven the space.

Love! Red bench with painted vertical slats. Cute lantern. Small birdhouse. All plantings are green - all color comes from the hard scapes.
