Do you love to spend time in the garden? Are you a plant whisperer, or maybe just a beginner trying to earn your green thumb? No matter who you are or your experience level with gardening, I bet that you love and appreciate when you see a beautifully cared for and thoughtfully put together garden or yard. I know I definitely do.
And even if you have a deep passion and love for the world of plants, it can be a daunting task when it comes to designing your own garden. Your amount of space can dictate your plans significantly, and should you plant just flowers, or fruits and veggies too? Do you want a more functional or aesthetically pleasing garden? There are too many questions and choices!
Whenever I feel overwhelmed by design choices like this, I love to scroll through Instagram and look for some great garden inspiration! And in the spirit of this search for inspiring gardeners, I've put together this list of my 10 favorite garden Instagram accounts that you can follow to get instant ideas and inspiration for creating your own green oasis!
Magdalene at @leneslandlust has really pinned down the cozy cottage style in her garden and backyard. We can just picture ourselves out there in the early morning, peacefully roaming the flowers and cozy decor pieces with a nice cup of tea! If you are looking to make your garden feel old world and down to earth, this is definitely an account to check out!
Kathryn Herman is truly a garden and landscaping GENIUS! Every photo on her page will instantly transport you to a cozy and welcoming outdoor space. To me, her designs feel very traditional but simple, not too busy with a ton of different plants or colors, well defined paths, and beautiful architecture and lighting.
If you've ever wanted to be taken to a fairytale world of flowers and European country sides, look no further than Sharon's Instagram page! Being the founder of My French Country Home, we can safely say that Sharon knows what she is talking about when it comes to gardens and especially European gardens! Her page combines very structured and refined traditional gardens and more whimsical and natural ones!

If you are looking for a nice POP of color in your garden, then you need to head over to visit Luke at @man_about_gardening!

A lot of times bright and bold colors can feel overwhelming, especially if you have a smaller garden space. But Luke manages to make it look so well put together and welcoming!
Another amazing garden inspo page you need to check out is Timothy Pilgrim's! He introduces a quite different garden style and mood on his page than others on this list, and that is what makes gardening such an amazing passion! You can really craft your garden to fit your personal tastes and style, there's not one right style or answer. We love Timothy's gardens as they feel very natural and wild, not overly controlled or pruned.

While not a traditional gardener or garden account, @the_worm_monger is a celebration of living an intentionally waste-free life and talks about the importance of composting and vermiculture! This is definitely a page to check out if you want to make your garden or yard more sustainable!
Becky over at @theseasonalhomestead is a true inspiration for anyone who wants to get into farming or homesteading! Not only does she provide advice and information about growing, but she also talks about canning and other aspects of homesteading!
