How to make a beautiful garden and a garden with your own hands, which would appeal to us delight and bring pleasure? Nowadays, the garden and the city are not just a land where food is grown to the table, it is a refuge from vanity and stress, a place where our soul returns to the beautiful.
You can be in the garden for a couple of minutes or for hours - it doesn't matter, because every second you enjoy every cell of your body.
Visually separate the garden.
Zoning garden space will help you create a more holistic and harmonious design. Flowerbed in with high ornamental herbs and flowers serves as a kind of partition between the garden and the garden.
Consider the view from different parts of the garden.
It is beautiful to admire your garden from afar, but it is much more important to enjoy it from the inside. Therefore, important are the views that open both from your gazebo, and from the path or a secluded bench in the garden.
To create an interesting structure, use curved paths and arches with climbing plants in the garden, carefully fitting them into the general arrangement of shrubs and fruit trees.
It is important to take into account not only the beauty of the flowers, but also their scent, then, walking along the garden, you can feel the scent of roses flowing into the wonderful scent of jasmine or lilies.
Use any corner of your garden like a flower garden.
Your garden is not just a place to fight for the harvest. With a little effort, you can always give it a more interesting look - by planting spicy herbs or flowers that repel insects as a curb.
Even small corners of the garden such as a place near the back wall of the house can be used to break a pretty flower garden with unpretentious perennials.
The fence is a great place for a flower bed with garden vines, it is enough to reinforce the garden net on it. For the sunny side of the fence you can plant a climbing rose that will bloom all season.
For a shady place, plant honeysuckle, which blooms, albeit briefly, but has a very pleasant aroma.
And, of course, use clematis! This is the most popular garden vine, which can absolutely amazingly transform your garden. And clematis will feel best on the garden arch, because He needs a shadow in the root zone and light for the shoots.
A garden is not only a decoration, but mainly a harvest. Using grapes in order to wrap around a garden gazebo, we will solve two problems at once.
Firstly, the grapes will create a pleasant coolness on a sunny day, and secondly, in the fall, we will be pleased with a generous harvest.
Shade-loving and light-loving plants can be planted nearby.
In any corner of your garden, you can combine your favorite plants, creating the desired mode of illumination.
Create a luxurious look.
Do not be greedy and do not plant in the garden all the beautiful varieties of flowers that caught your eye. It is better to choose 1-2 beautiful varieties, but create a truly luxurious flower bed by planting several bushes next to it.
Where there is no interesting structure - use color. Mint thickets in the far corner of the garden do not have a particularly interesting aesthetic appearance, adding to these plantings a container with contrast foliage, obtained an excellent result.
And the contrast can be not only color, but also light. So white flowers in a shady corner of the garden will visually make it less gloomy, giving it an almost mystical charm.
Mix it up.
A beautiful garden with your own hands implies the creation of an informal relaxing atmosphere. This can be achieved using a combination of plants in a garden in unexpected ways.
By adding some simple flowers next to planting vegetables, you will turn a simple vegetable garden into a triumph of beauty and the bounty of nature in your garden.
Agree that a good harvest brings no less aesthetic pleasure than a flower garden?
Use unpretentious varieties of plants.
The garden and the kitchen garden imply organic products, preferably with minimal use of chemicals.
And the best way to avoid chemicals is to choose disease-resistant varieties.
Before you bring a new plant to the site, ask about its resistance to diseases and pests, so that it does not create problems neither for you nor for the surrounding plantings in the garden. This applies to both vegetables and fruits and flowers.
You can always find those varieties of plants that will grow well in your conditions, without requiring you to pay special attention and use chemicals.
Each has its own place.
Every corner in the garden has its purpose, has the right to exist and your love.
Therefore, the compost box and the shed should not be muddy foundlings in your garden, but be as loved and well-groomed as flower beds and a vegetable garden.
In response, every corner in your garden will only please you.
Creating a garden and a garden with your own hands, it is important to plan plantings not only on the plane, but to use the height difference - then your landscape design will be more saturated and interesting. In this regard, lucky for those who have a garden on the slope - if there are certain problems, such a garden will always look like a win than flat plantations with a garden and a pair of fruit trees in the corners.
For those who have a flat garden area will come to the aid of arches and pergolas that will turn your garden into a fabulous place. In addition, it is a great way to showcase your beautiful roses and clematis.
Often the question arises as to how to cover the waving roses for the winter. In fact, you make a minimum of movements - cover the roses with a film right on the arch.
Garden as a place for creativity.
Although it may be too late to change something in the garden this year, it is never too early to make a qualitative leap for the better garden in the future. Analyze what your garden looks like now, so you want to add, remove or change. Draw a plan.
Think about where the gaps are, where are the errors? Your garden is not as luxurious as we would like?
Surprise yourself. Always try one or two new ideas per season.
Do your best. Do not give up due to the fact that your space or time is limited. Start small, plant something that arouses your admiration.
Truth be told, the most delicious vegetables and fruits are the ones grown in our garden. A garden with your own hands will give you the most satisfaction from life than anything else.
