A house without a garden and a flower bed looks not only boring, monotonous, but also tasteless. In order for the courtyard to shine with bright colors and natural picturesqueness, it is necessary to correctly think over the landscape design of the infield, and then turn it into reality.

To create a beautiful and cozy garden, it is not necessary to be a professional landscape designer

Before starting landscaping, you need to study the features of the site - the quality of the soil, the terrain and draw its plan. It is best to follow the example of professionals - first create a combination on paper, and then, according to this plan, start planting ornamental plants. To make the composition look spectacular, it is necessary to combine several details of landscape design: shrubs, lawn, artificial structures.

Shrubs and lawn

From the bushes to make a spectacular and useful hedge. If you want to hide the yard or hedge from prying eyes, it will provide additional protection against dust and noise of the adjacent road, you should use small-leaved linden, common hornbeam, field maple or mulberry. For low hedges, such shrubs are suitable: evergreen boxwood, holly magonia, Japanese meadowsweet or quince.

The lawn can be ordinary or flowering (Moorish). Sowing it is simple: just loosen the top layer of soil (2-3 cm), carefully water it, wait until the water is absorbed into the soil and sow the seeds. An ordinary lawn needs to be cut every week, if necessary - to be sown. Moorish lawn does not require special care.
