Those who are fortunate enough to live in an independent housing unit (single, semi-detached, terraced villa) usually have a beautiful garden. The latter is suitable for any occasion, from an open-air meal in summer to birthday parties with many guests.
A garden needs periodic maintenance in order to last as long as possible. In fact, it takes a constant commitment to keep it in order. In particular, it is necessary to achieve it with criterion, so as to balance the spaces and decorations in a suitable way.
Thanks to this practical guide, we are going to see how to design your garden, organizing the spaces outside the house. Happy reading!
Make sure you have at your hand:
- Plants and flowers
- Grass for Meadow
- Gardening Equipment
There are two ways to create a garden with an art rule. The first one is to rely on a gardening company. In this case, it is necessary to indicate to the operators the types of plants that they prefer. Explain which ones you like the most. Also, indicate on which style you intend to set your garden.
A second method is the classic DIY, more tiring but certainly cheaper. By adopting this system, you are seeing the evolution of the “Day by day” garden. The end result, besides impressing your guests, will also be gratifying for you. A beautiful garden will repay you all the work done with so much zeal.
A garden is not born accidentally, but it is the whole of many elements, such as hedges, trees, shrubs, fences, walls and gates. These must have an equal style, which you can choose according to your personal taste (from the classic English garden to something more “minimal” or elegant).
The garden must be pleasant in terms of aesthetic, functional and easy to handle. This is because it is a space that you with a certain frequency. It makes no sense to occupy all the space with statues and decorations. In doing so, you will minimize the living space of the place where you can stop. Remember to place outdoor tables and benches for your picnics, and maybe even a shady shed under which to shelter during the hottest hours. Do you have or are you planning to have children? Create a garden space suitable for their games with slides and swings or a sandbox with palettes and ants.
To choose the most suitable plants, trees and shrubs for your garden, first check the climate of the place where you live. Specifically, to design a garden properly, you will need to know three fundamental aspects. How long is the winter season, how frequent the strong wind and what are the most shady areas during the summer.
With the above information, you will have the opportunity to exclude already some type of plant that would not withstand the climatic conditions of the surrounding environment. Now enter the most flowered plants or shrubs in the area where the garden is more visible (maybe near the entrance). Reserve the largest and tallest plants or shrubs for the areas where you want to create the shade.
