5 Steps to Creating a Dream Home Garden


 
Gardening

The lush gardens on the grounds of some homes make even small properties feel like luxurious escapes. But these properties only seem common in magazines and home design blogs, so achieving this yourself almost seems like an impossibility. But you can have one of these fabled gardens full of healthy plants and inviting walkways. Colorful garden plants and stone pavers in Alpharetta are affordable, too. It just takes some smart design sense and some expert assistance to make the dream come true. Here are the 5 steps to turn a plain, flat property into a garden that deserves its own spot in a popular design blog.

1. Simple Planning

Start by building an outline of your future garden. Draw your property, being sure to include all landmarks you will need to work around, including the house, garage, shed, fence, drainage areas, A/C units, and mature trees. Then, fill in the blanks! Draw pathways, lines of bushes, flower beds, and anything else your heart desires. Try to recall photographs or memories of beautiful properties that have inspired you.

2. Make It Special

Take a look at what you have drawn. Does it appeal to you? Is it too simplistic or cluttered? Does it have a certain focal feature like a large tree or a central meeting point? Does it make practical sense? Building a special garden takes a few special details. Step away from your outline for a bit, then return to it, or consider showing it to hardscaping experts with the experience to know what makes a property look truly special. They can finalize your design and open you up to exciting possibilities, no matter how small your property may be.

3. Add Pavers

Just as your design process began with an outline, constructing the perfect garden begins with constructing the outline. Pavers, or charming and durable paths made from stone or brick, are the perfect alternative to boring concrete sidewalks. The same professionals who assisted you with your design sketch can pave paths that allow you stroll throughout the property. Be sure that these pathways connect to all exterior doors, gates in your fence, your driveway, the patio, etc. The point is to make the path useful and accessible from all areas of your home. This results in the most practical garden.

4. Shop for Plants

Now you need to fill in the blanks between your paver pathways. A good way to do this is to work from the center of each blank area and move outward, with the tallest plants standing in the center. Consider what plants appeal to you most. Do you like colorful lavender or charming ferns? Do you want to have a simple, green color palette or a wide variety of hues?

Buy and plant a series of plants of different heights, including short floral plants, full bushes, and tall trees. For best results, shop for plants that are local to the area. Not only will native plants be easier to maintain--they are used to the climate conditions--they will give your home a local character.

5. Finish It Up

Your garden is almost complete. You have planned a series of charming pathways through beautiful plants. What is missing? Think back to step 2 and make it special. Exemplify the uniqueness of your garden with benches, a fire pit, a sundial, a small fountain, or another focal point. 

Believe it or not, this is all it takes to transform a simple, grassy yard into a gorgeous escape, one that your neighbors will envy and you can enjoy every single day, no matter the season. Does this transformation process still seem daunting to you? No worries. Professionals who work with stone pavers in Alpharetta can help you create and implement a design, assisting you from start to finish.
