1. Planning your landscape gardening is like painting a picture on the canvas.
Just as an art teacher in high school, you say you – have a significant point of interest and add points to create some beautiful sub scenery you more attractive. You imagine in your mind, draw a sketch and fill out all the details you’ve dreamed of. Keep revising your design until it looks like the picture you have in mind.
2. Not feeling very artistic?
If you are more ‘concrete’ one, try putting a garden hose or heavy strings on your page to get a feel for how and where you want to share your space. Remember to think of balance, not symmetry. Some people believe that they should plant trees and flowers in a straight, boring line.
Tip: choosing an odd number when planting trees or flowers. With flowers, plant some of the same plants in groups to create a splash of color. Better to have, a few well-chosen, bold splash of color than to have small spots of color scattered across a large area. A group of crapemyrtles will look beautiful in your garden.
3. If you have a hard time thinking of what your head can be a point of interest, close your eyes and think about what you like most about your page.
Is there tall pine trees solo, a grouping of birch trees, a rocky ledge, an old weathered fence, or something else that catches your eye? If you can not find something of interest already in place, think about adding something that you admire from the picture in a magazine or something that caught your eye when you drive past the beautiful environment.
Tip: DO NOT copy anything next-door neighbor you do. They will not appreciate and will not look nearly as unique if you’re both going to the same effect.
4. Still can not think of the point of the flower heads? How to create a place to fall in the water?
No swimming – it’s old news! With receding water re-cycling, you do not have to worry about standing water or algae ponds. Just pick a few interesting rocks or stones of various sizes, set them to cascade down the slope, add plants and water. Viola! Or, how the roads winding through the pages of your stone? The original stone or stone walls to create a flower?
5. If you choose a tree or group of trees that became a significant point of interest, do not center them on your page.
It’s much more interesting to put them slightly off-center. Do not choose a tree, a big strong tree should have a good shape, with something interesting about the bark, leaves, pods, flowers, or fruit.
Tip: While the poplar is a fast grower and striking a tree, it shed leaves early and allowed to stand with bare branches in early autumn. Poplar makes a better choice for backyard trees or when creating a space separator between your yard and your neighbors. An excellent choice for mountain ash trees with berries bright, brilliant leaves or bark of sugar maple and white birch trees, all of which add interest to your entire landscape.
6. It is always best to select trees and shrubs that grow in your local climate.
It’s tempting to choose something exotic catalog, but you’ll be happy if the tree you want is not right for your climate. Trees are an excellent investment, choose wisely. Sometimes, we would need to use the local tree experts, just because of the wrong choice while doing your landscape gardening!
7. Flowering vines can also be used to make flowers.
Whether you choose the ivy to climb the bricks on your home or wine trumpet to wind around the old weathered fence along the side of your home, both can be used as a sub-point to accent the main points that interest you.
Tip: immortal wine can be used to establish a permanent addition to your landscape gardening scheme. The Virginia creeper, wisteria, honeysuckle, a climbing rose, or Clematis all make an excellent choice to create interest and can be used to minimize small imperfections in the wall.
8. And for the final talent, add a colorful flag for designing your landscape.
Whether you choose a flag, or flag of a strange garden, magnificent patriotic Americans, they will create interest and add color to your view.
Tip: select the largest polyester for durability flag that was flown every day. Choose a nylon flag to fly in light wind. There are some new, hanger-style flags are available if you do not have a flagpole in your yard. Mount rotates on a flagpole, deck your home or post box, and designed to keep your flag from wrapping. The telescoping flagpole and easily extends to 20 feet in a matter of seconds or up to 7 feet for portability.
