Landscape design is a set of special activities and solutions for landscaping, aimed at changing the appearance of the territory through the active use of natural components. Using various backyard ideas can make your garden beautiful, as well as original and unique.
Trying to organize the space around your house, you first create a garden. It can be fruit-bearing, with fruit trees and berry bushes, or simply decorative, for enjoying the beauty of plants, in order to feel a peace and joy in it, and even almost wild, imitating natural landscape. The perfect option is when landscape not only does not contradict the style of the house but also is a continuation of its interior design.
Basics of landscaping art
Already at the stage of landscape planning, the needs of all family members need to be taken into account, and the necessary structures and areas should be envisaged. The main task of landscape design is to make the environment comfortable for work and rest, at the same time achieving the greatest aesthetic expression.
The appearance and functionality of the existed garden can also be improved by:
- building new paths;
- adding hedges or decorative walls;
- building a playground;
- organizing a place to rest;
- making new flower beds.
Even if the yard is very small, a bench or a small gazebo in your favorite place, where you like to watch the long-awaited flowering or fussy life of insects and birds in the garden, will be a good solution.
Trees and flowering plants for landscape design solutions
Woody plants are a structural basis in landscaping, but they do not grow quickly. Therefore, in the initial stages, it is especially important to include fast-growing lianas and various perennials, which in a short time will make the landscape attractive. When selecting plants it is important to take into account the conditions of your garden – luminance level, the availability of moisture, the fertility of soils.
For those who love flowering plants, flower beds and gardens can become the source of permanent artistic creativity. Flower beds from annual plants can be the picturesque elements changing the color range and the nature of the garden from year to year.
The final touch in the landscape design of your backyard can be done with the help of various garden decorations – original accessories, mosaic elements, beautiful containers for plants, decorative fences, antique utensils, colored sprinkles, whimsical snags and art products made of wood, stone, and metal, and even textiles. They will help to unite the style of the garden with the house decoration and make it special.
