So you want to get some ideas for a garden design, well, you’ve come to the right place. In this article, I’m going to go through some common garden design aspects and show you how to use them to your advantage. So sit back and enjoy!
Landscaping is the easiest way to add interest to your garden. You can do as much or as little as you like. It’s best to take a look at the entire garden – not just the walls and the surrounding ground. You should also consider the size of the property and any nearby buildings and whether they could be damaged if they were to fall in.
Landscaping is not just about what you plant and where. There is also the issue of paths, water features, and accessories. For example, a path should go straight through the center of the garden rather than turning around corners. In addition, paths should be adequately wide to provide sufficient clearance for pedestrians.
If you have plenty of space, then it may be worth planting lots of attractive plants. But don’t be tempted to go overboard with these plants. They don’t necessarily need to be mature. Often if you do a thorough job in planting, then you’ll see little difference after a few years.
However, many times people have problems with this. So it may be a good idea to avoid plants that are very hardy and hard to reproduce. Only plant the ones that are suitable for your garden, but the potting material should be suited to the particular soil conditions in your garden.
Landscaping with stone structures can help to make a garden look finished. For example, by creating a driveway or pond or retaining wall, it can add character and create a sense of connection between different parts of the garden. Plus, it’s often cheaper than having a flat landscaped roof over your head.
Low maintenance shrubs will look great in small patches and are often easier to maintain than other plants. They also protect against drought by shading the other plants in the garden. Plants such as ferns and mosses are wonderful additions to any garden.
If you’re looking for a plant that is low maintenance, be sure to choose an annual. Annuals like hedgehogs and berries are great for gardens with low maintenance. Also, be sure to choose plants that are easy to clean up after any damage.
If you have a small garden and want to add a small window box, then there are some varieties that look particularly charming in this type of space. Think about adding a small table and some chairs to your garden. A sitting area makes it even more special and adds that personal touch. And remember that a sitter is not required if you’re having dinner for example.
There are a wide variety of herbs that look great in small pots or containers. If you have space, you should try growing herbs like the aster, basil, chervil, dill, fennel, ginseng, mint, parsley, rosemary, sage, and thyme. And remember, that if you’re growing indoors, it’s better to buy a small packet of seeds than buying a large quantity.
You may want to think about your garden design style before you start buying things. Just remember to do a good job, the result will be a beautiful garden that you’ll be proud to show off.
