Having a home with a garden is a privilege that only a few people can afford. The beauty and naturalness of this home’s outdoor area provide peace and well-being for both residents and admirers. It is important to note that a well-designed outdoor space depends on the commitment of its owner and his or her creative spirit. The following tips are to be considered for an optimal enhancement of your garden.
Describe your plant project in detail!
The conceptual stage of an outdoor design consists in defining the type of garden you are looking for. The elaboration of any project is the first step towards its realization. It is a question here of describing your dream in a very precise way. To do this, it is necessary to note the essential elements such as the type of flowers, trees, shrubs, vegetable garden or the creation of a green wall, etc… As far as possible, even the smallest details, such as the quality of the lawn to be purchased, should also be indicated.
Let yourself be surprised by the adaptability and creativity of a landscaping professional! Furthermore, don’t hesitate to write down all your ideas, even those that don’t seem feasible. This design will give you a first impression of the scope of the work to be done as well as the means (human, material and financial) to be implemented.
Depending on personal or family habits, the utilitarian functions of the garden are multiple. As an ecological part of the home, the garden can also serve as a playground for children or as a place of relaxation and rest for adults. The installation of a pergola for napping, a space for the weekend barbecue, or possibly the construction of a mini-golf course are utilitarian criteria to consider in advance.
For practical reasons, your garden should be adapted to the uses you plan for it as early as the conceptual stage of your outdoor design project. To do this, it is necessary to determine the location of your utility space. Depending on the case, it is wise to create one of the paths leading to this area to avoid any trampling of the lawn. For an optimal result, all these elements must be considered when drawing up your landscaping project’s layout.
Opt for long-lasting outdoor beauty!
A peaceful, trendy, blooming outdoor space throughout the year has preparatory requirements. For the pleasure to be long-lasting, the choice of the type of plants must be made, taking into account the objective of the perennial beauty of the garden. Therefore, it is important to choose plants that bloom all year round.
In addition, it is also crucial to consider the passing of the seasons to plant the maximum of seasonal flowers. This way, the look of your garden will change each season, four times a year. This seasonal makeover will prevent it from becoming monotonous.
On the other hand, planting fruit trees (bonsai or natural) is also an option. The idea is to take advantage of the ripe fruit harvest for each season. Moreover, this option would reinforce the natural aspect of your outdoor space. Considering these sustainability criteria, you will give your garden a new lease on life.
Above all, do not mix colors!
The basis of the well-being provided by a well-designed garden lies in the admiration of the different natural colors that emerge from it. This is a psychological concept called chromotherapy. It is a natural remedy that consists in treating any physical or psychological disorder through the sight of a multitude of colors.
Relevant research confirms the positive effect of colors on the human brain. For an optimal result, a plurality of colors is required. Therefore, do not hesitate to multiply the colors of your plants so that your garden is also a therapeutic place.
