Black in the Garden is Sexy as Hell

Posted by

With a title like that ^^^ you'd never guess I really don't like the color black.
Especially when you hear I drive a black car and always wear black to the gym (I mean, wouldn't you? It's slimming).
I don't even have one of those little (little) black dresses.

The problem is, gray is my favorite color. I feel like I'm cheating on gray, every time I wiggle into my black, ass-hugging, spandex gym pants. 

Black is too...definite.
Black is too...dark.
Black is too...cold.
Black is just too bold - which is kind of ironic as I consider myself kind of bold.

But damn, if black doesn't look sexy as hell in the garden. 
Case in point...

Black planter box with espalier fencing.

Black garden shed.

Black wood fencing for a sexy backdrop.

Burned lumber for the sexiest garden accent.

I mean, how fricking sexy is burned lumber?!?
SEXY.
I can think of soooo many ways to use this technique in the garden.

And you know what looks good with black?
Red.

Why? Because red is bold. 
Red is sexy.
Red is the perfect complimentary color to black in the garden.
