Rustic twig fences are perfect rustic garden projects to define perimeters of different garden rooms or around a vegetable or herb garden. Find out how to build one here.

Keeping to one or maybe two styles of garden fence designs is best; avoid a hodgepodge of different techniques and take a sleek streamlined approach to your rustic garden projects.

I use a palisade fence around the outermost boundary, and then define smaller areas within that with twig picket fences, which are similar but much lower.

Every fence needs a gate or two - choose from a rustic twig gate or a bedframe gate.

The boundary can be planted with scrambling vines for an established and aged feel. A twig lattice can be added to the top of your fence for height.

In this way you have the best of both worlds; privacy, and yet it allows you to see into the different areas.

Twig archways help define areas within the garden – a place to pause in transition from one style to another more private place and provide support for climbing vines.

Hypertufa Sphere - this one looks like an egg..

A rustic garden chair that can be used either as seating, or to plant a tumbling Clematis under is a charming and delightful project. Use an old metal chair to plant succulent plants into as a unique accent.

Other rustic projects can be utilitarian yet useful, like a twig firewood tote. Twig trellises and obelisks use waste twigs and branches to make a beautiful accent.

Build a potting bench to place in a convenient shady spot so you have a place to transplant some seedlings, or even propagate some perennials, or simply to display some vintage watering cans and add country charm to your garden.

Use a motif to tie everything together, like hearts.

Do you like fairy gardens?  Why not make one out of a terracotta clay pot?
