After a hard day at work, you want your garden to be beautiful, practical and affordable. Follow these simple rules of garden design to create the right changes to your garden. It should be remembered that in the garden, during the summer season, we spend most of our free time, so due attention should be paid to the planning and placement of plants and furniture so that the time spent is the desired relaxation after hard hours at work. You must also pay attention to ensure that the garden is safe for children and that each plant has the right conditions to flourish.
Garden Next to Place to Sit
It’s easy to get carried away by the beauty of your garden and to want to design it as if it were a work of art. But you should begin with the areas that are most important to you, whether they’re places where you relax in the sun, or where you like to entertain guests. When you are planning a patio, don’t make the mistake of assuming that the sun will shine on it just because it looks better in a certain location. It’s more important to consider how much sun your backyard receives than to impose a design that looks good. For this reason, garden designers often place the favourite part of a garden next to the house. A route needs to be created which allows you to walk down from the house, and get to your favourite spot. It is essential to find a comfortable place to sit that is usable for as much of the year as possible.
One of the most common garden design mistakes made by gardeners is when creating a border. Many borders are long, thin rectangles or wavy edged curves. The problem with this is that the shape of the border is decided on first, and it is this shape that ends up being problematic. In a typical suburban garden, two shapes dominate—the overall shape of the garden and the shape of the lawn. When borders are created first, they warp the lawn so that it fits into their shapes. The shape of the lawn then dominates your view.
Don`t Make Line
Humans notice the movement of objects and lines, both of which are evolutionary throwbacks that helped early humans avoid predators. Garden boundaries, such as fences, walls, or hedges, delineate the space of a garden. A mirroring of these boundaries within the design of the garden is distracting. It elevates the fence’s visual prominence while making the boundary the most significant element. As a result, the garden appears smaller because of how the design keeps you aware of its edges as you use it.
Never be unable to see a fence from top to bottom
This builds on the preceding principle. Walls, fences, and limits are seldom the most beautiful aspects of a garden, but they are visually dominant. This is due to two factors: first, the lines that they draw, and second, the sheer number of them that can be seen, all of which are at eye level. It’s impossible to ignore them. Reduce the size of the border you see overall by breaking it up into smaller pieces. This is the plan of action. The linear dominance is also broken up if some objects or plants are taller than the barrier.
