Elements of garden design and tips for caring perennial gardening

Home Improvement
In every landscape designs, line is the most important design element. Everything in a garden is about line – from a uniform sidewalk to curved fence, from straight orderly shrubs to curved informal garden beds, an essential garden landscape element is to understand the line. As you are planning your landscape design, always consider the line that is formed by adding plants, water features and other stuff in the garden.

Lighting effect in the garden

Another important element of garden landscape is light. Gardens seem beautiful, especially in the early morning or evening because plants virtually glow from warm backlighting. Light and shades have important effect on the colours and how they work together. Although you don’t have anything to do with natural light, you can manipulate the effects of it. For example, a water feature such as pond could be a great way to reflect additional natural light from the water. To give more shades to it, you can plant some submerged and floating aquatic plants. You can find a large variety of water plants in Melbourne, picking the right kind of plants that give appropriate shade to the pond.

Light can be artificial as well. For example, to create captivating silhouette lighting, you can install backlight on a sculpture, tree or shrub.

Contrasting forms to divide the space

Form is as important as other elements. Without a strong contrasting form, a landscape is incomplete. The form and shape of plants helps to divide space and give a design interest. You can add contrast by adding barberry shrubs with tall plants. Also, use garden pots, planter boxes in Melbourne to add definition and stability to a mixed border.

Patternsto draw visitors

Pattern creates rhythm and beauty in the garden. It complements the texture and contrast. The most important aspect of pattern is light and shadow. You can use solid herringbone pattern to amalgamate your hardscape. Also, you can put patterns to draw people through the garden. Pattern is primary being used to draw attention, so overtly bold patterns can distract the visitors from the actual garden.

Variety is the spice of garden

In the end if you don’t have variety in your garden, no matter how beautifully it is designed, it doesn’t reflect the actual beauty of garden. To make the landscaping more interesting, you need to create an accent and focal point. A small pond or a water feature can be a good focal point. Also, use variety of plants such as succulent in Melbourne, tall flowering plants, bushes, shrubs and others.

Tipsto take care of perennial garden

• Use a special water source for your garden. You can invest on water tanks in Melbourne and install it exclusively for your gardening maintenance.

• For perennial gardens, always use high phosphorous and low nitrogen fertilizers.

• Take care of your soil. It should not over wet and completely dry. For perennial gardens, watering is the key.

• If you have a few big trees in your garden, mulching around those trees helps to keep weeds to minimum.

• Use loose and loamy soil for your flower garden.
