When you bring a new plant from a nursery to plant in your garden, you become a designer designing the garden landscape you have. If you want to become a good designer, you need to be aware of certain aspects so that you can get the best scenery.
You may have noticed that some gardens have an organized look while others, with the finest collection of plants, look haphazard. The basic reason for this is that the owner or landscape designer has not properly planned the future of the garden. The following tips will help you have among the best garden landscapes obtainable.
The following great tips will help you have a garden that will stand out from other gardens and will also keep you from the headache of knowing what to do.
Plan the garden properly
The landscape of the garden must be planned in such a way that it looks beautiful now while keeping the future in mind. You will find that it is best to plant your precious collection of plants in such a way that there is enough room when in the future you need a lawnmower, or stubble cutter, to come in for construction projects for your porch or patio.
If this planning is not done now, in the future you may have to dispose of your precious plants to have space to allow the movement of such equipment.
Have a point of contact
The focal point of your garden must be such that it attracts people and captures their attention as you wander around your garden. It should be different from others but not out of place. You can have an antique garden bench as a focal point but don’t use an item that is not related to the garden. A body of water or an oak can be a good focal point that will give the garden landscape a new dimension.
Curves must be checked
It is good to have curved paths or flower beds in a garden, but you must not overdo them. It must be kept simple so that the geometric design that you have incorporated into the landscaping stands out. If you use these shapes too often it will become common and no one will notice them.
Have movement in the garden
A garden landscape that has no movement is like a painting. Paintings are good on the walls but in a garden you need movement so you can bring life and interest to your garden.
You may be wondering how to have movement. It is quite easy to have such movement in your garden by adding swaying ornamental grasses or flowers that attract birds and butterflies and it will help you get the desired movement in your garden.
