Backyard flower beds
If the flowerbed is designed beautifully and professionally, it can successfully fit into the landscape, and therefore creating a layout of the future flowerbed and selecting plants for it takes an important place in the development of the site design project. You can build flowerbeds of completely different shapes. They can be simple-square or round, or complex-asymmetrical or bizarre shapes. In addition, plants can be planted in a flowerbed in the form of patterns that will be notified when they bloom. When creating a flowerbed, the landscape designer has to use all his imagination and imagination.
The main types of flowerbeds and the rules of their construction are determined by a whole science. To create a flowerbed with your own hands, you need to follow several basic rules. In the beginning, you need to choose the right place for future flowerbeds. For this purpose, an open area is ideal, which will be able to freely approach from different sides. For example, you can create the backyard flower beds.
This location is convenient for taking care of the flowerbed and admiring it. It is desirable that the place was flat, without hollows and bumps, unless the surface irregularities were not the idea of the landscape designer.
The main criterion for choosing plants is the beauty of their flowering. Suitable for both perennial and annual flowers.
When making a flowerbed, you must follow the following rules:
- There should be a free approach to the flowerbed from all sides
- The area occupied by it must be at least 3 square meters.
- Design, it is desirable to choose as simple as possible, for example, flower beds with rocks/
- Choose plants for the flowerbed with a height of at least 15 cm
Flowerbeds created on the site must correspond to one of the existing types:
- Vertical flower beds
- flower beds around trees
Next, let’s look at some of these types and their main differences. For regular flowerbeds, choose a geometric pattern that is strictly visible, and flowers-blooming at the same time.
A traditional flowerbed can delight with flowering plants all season. It is planted with flowers with different flowering times: late-flowering and early-flowering. These are bulbous plants, annuals and perennials. Irregular type of flowerbeds is characterized by the fact that plants are planted in small groups. They bloom one after another.
A complicated composition is a raised flowerbed. Occupying a very large area, it can turn into the center of a well-thought-out landscape design of the entire site.
You can plant plants so that during flowering they form a certain image. For example, you can make a clock out of flowers. If you have a preference for one particular type of color, and you do not like colorful colors, then mono flowerbed is ideal for you.
You can plant plants of one or more colors on the flowerbed.
Flowerbeds are as unique and individual as landscape design projects: it is impossible to find two identical ones. This design element requires a creative approach, just like any other.
The most commonly used annuals in flower beds include plants such as marigolds, petunias, tobacco, and asters. The most popular of the two-year-olds are carnations, daisies, forget-me-nots, and bells. Bulbous plants such as gladioli, dahlias, and tulips are also used for flower beds. Lilies, daisies, peonies, Phlox, roses, irises, chrysanthemums and others are well-deserved fame among landscape designers.
A flowerbed is a necessary element when creating a landscape design. It is able to give the site beauty, originality and uniqueness.
