Planning Your Planting

A good design should start with structural plants that are infilled with beautiful, flowering plants. Evergreen shrubs should be used at the end of every border and along the way. Also, remember to include the small shrubs like box ball. Large evergreens such as mahonia should be used for the big areas. After making the frame, all the gaps should be filled with beautiful and pretty flowering plants. You can choose about five types of flowers and then arrange them in patterns to produce a harmonious and a coordinated effect.

Coordinating the Plants and Paving

Silver and black paving are ideal for strong colours like yellow, red and orange. White or grey stone is perfect for white and purple blooms. Buff or golden is perfect for flowers having soft tones such as chalky yellow and lavender.

Setting Tone

Landscaping is helpful in setting the tones. Paving that is well laid is helpful in providing a strong design for the flower garden. For instance, white and grey stones can be laid randomly to give your garden a French country feel or look. A modern and sleek scheme is produced by regularly organizing the paving. On the other hand, a golden or buff stone can be arranged randomly to create an English country look or feel.

Avoid Skimping on the Flowerbeds

A perfect border should have a depth of one meter or more. This will give you enough space for putting the tall plants behind the small ones. Climbers can be placed at the boarder’s back for those people who don’t have deep flower beds.

Shaping Your Lawn

The lawn of your garden is very important. This is the first thing that you see when you look out of the window. You can set your flower garden on track by improving the overall shape of the lawn. A lawn should have a strong shape. It can have any shape including oblong, square, oval or rectangle.

Prepare, Purchase and Edge the Plants

You should do this once you have determined the size of the garden and deciding on the other key elements. The bed should be prepared by removing all the old plant materials such as grass. Plants and flowers should be purchased according to the design of the flower garden.
