What is a garden project?
A garden design is a specification that contains the comprehensive information needed to arrange the garden area. Design includes garden ideas and inspiration. A garden architect gives advice relating to creating pleasant, arranged, functional garden spaces.
Some tips, notes when designing a garden.
Customize your lawn.
Look out your window at your garden and the biggest shape you’re likely to see is a lawn. If it has a good strong figure, it will set the whole garden on the right path. And it doesn’t have to be a rectangle! Try an oval, circle, square or oblong.
Landscaping sets the tone.
The way the paving is laid and the color of the paving provide a strong design direction for the entire garden. For example, a gray or white stone arranged in a random pattern will set the stage for a French country look. Black or silver pavers arranged in a regular pattern will create the perfect backdrop for a sleek and modern garden scheme. Whereas fawn or gold stone laid in a random pattern creates an English country feel.
Remember the four seasons.
When choosing flowering plants, try to get some out of season, so you have year-round color. Or place bulbs in spring and early summer for a great garden start.
Don’t limit your seating area.
When planning your garden, include a lot in that plan. If you are considering a garden table, think about the space it needs, and allow each person to sit comfortably and pull out a chair without hitting anything. And remember, you’ll need room to walk around the table with everyone seated. All of this takes up much more space than you might think!
Integrate your ornaments into your garden.
The most important rule with garden ornaments is to integrate them along with the planting. It seems that a decorative element in the middle of an empty space will not look good. If it’s too small, it will look lost, and something too big will overwhelm the space.
Plan your planting.
The best designs start with structural plants filled with pretty, flowering plants. So use evergreen shrubs at the end of each border and as punctuation along the way. Include small shrubs such as boxwoods or large evergreens such as mahonia for larger areas. Once you have that frame, fill in the gaps with pretty plants. Try to stick to only five or six different types and arrange them in repeating patterns for a coordinated and harmonious effect.
