Before you have a garden design in place, you must first decide what you are looking for in a garden. If you want your garden to stand out, you must think of a design that looks different.
If you are the kind who likes neat edges, straight lines, and trimmed borders, a formal garden may appeal to you. A rectangular lawn with straight flower borders and circular flower beds may be the right choice for you. A straight driveway and a rigid design may just complete this formal look. Everything in this garden is symmetrical with not a hint of anything that's natural.
When the plot size is small, it often limits the choice for a natural looking landscape and so the formal look may just be the right choice in that case. A small formal garden with flower beds and roses is still popular among gardeners as it allows them to grow a variety of plants. The design element does not play a major role here.
If space is a major constraint, there is another way out too. Your backyard could be turned into a patch of green. A courtyard garden with floor tiles, green foliage and a shrub or two can have a strong impact even if there are just a few plants.
Nothing can beat the rose garden. In terms of colour and beauty, the rose garden offers unlimited choice. There are numerous varieties, colour options and combinations. Care must be taken to see that the beds are edged with seasonal flowers and bulbs. The garden will look bare when the roses are pruned and it's important that there are different kinds of seasonal flower in bloom always.
Parterres and knot garden
Parterres consist of a series of shaped beds or compartments that together form a pattern. These are gardens that are designed to be viewed from the upper windows of grand houses. They are expensive, slow to establish and labour intensive. But the final effect can be quite stunning.
Stone and gravel garden
Stones and gravel can be used effectively to create a garden that's
unique and easy to maintain too. Drought-tolerant plants must be chosen to see that they don't wilt in summer. The choice of plants is, therefore, limited in a rock garden. A large rock or boulder can be used as a focal point and a variety of plants can be grown in groups.
Choose a design that appeals to you, get the right plants, and you can start your garden. As long as you know what you want, it does not matter how exotic the design theme is. With plants that are chosen to suit the climate and landscape, it's easy to achieve the garden you have planned. Not only this, greenery around us leads to the advantages of anti- pollution, environment friendly measures which gives us oxygen-rich air to breathe in, where health.
Benefits for the body and cosmetic benefit for healthy and glowing skin also integrated. Lots of ways are there to green small spaces and if you live in a small space and have a small home and no sprawling garden, what you need is little imagination and effort to have the pleasure of greenery.
If a tiny ground is fronting your home, create a small patch of green by filling it with fertile soil and planting a few plants which won't grow into large trees requiring big space. There are plenty of potted plants ju t ideal for tiny spaces, where you can create a small garden in your balcony or terrace. A small sculpture in an affordable material placed in between the plants looks attractive. A floor lamp will also enhance the space. You can also hang lantern above the plants from the ceiling. If you have a tiny backyard, you can add a series of grooves with plants there.
If you feel you don't have the space or time to tend a set of plants, then just add one simple creeper or plant in a small comer with a small sculpture in the niche above it and a small and elegant overhead lamp or with a painting hanging on the wall above and this will also make for a pleasant green comer. If your lifestyle necessitates long stay away from home and absolutely no access to green plants, there are some plants which can do without watering for long periods of time and also use dried flowers and ferns in a small corner for similar effects.
When there is absolutely no space on the floor or balcony, then the window sill is a good option as a space for placing a few slow- growths, small-size plants. Another option is hanging plants, these can be placed just outside the entrance or in the balcony either overhead or suspended from the railings.
Another location for greenery in such space-cramped homes would be a study table or a corner of the kitchen counter. Small desktop plants can be requested for these locations. Terrarium is a kind of garden which is a zero-maintenance one once it is installed, and décor object by itself. It is ideal for homes short of space as it is like a small indoor garden by itself.
Terrariums are bottle gardens. However, they are not to be confused with plants growing out of a bottle as for e.g., the money plants you see in many homes. Terrariums contain a plant or several small plants, complete with supporting soil all contained within a glass case and growing within this moist enclosed space. Since a clear glass case with lid is an ideal option, you can even use old or discarded aquariums or any wide-mouthed glass pitcher for this, slow growth plants are ideal for terrariums and generally speaking flowering plants are not suitable.
