Flowerbed at the cottage

The landscape design of the flower bed combines not only a variegated flower garden of flowers planted in a row, but also curbs formed around the garden paths, front gardens, mix boarders with appropriate plantation boundaries and the ability to organize vertical landscaping.

Having free space and the desire to create a masterpiece with their own hands, many summer residents seek not only to break a central flowerbed on their site, but to build a rose garden or an alpine hill and create a garden of continuous flowering. Depending on the exterior of the house and the chosen style, the corresponding design of flower beds is created.

We get inspiration for creating a flower garden with our own hands

It has long been noticed that what inspires you best is pleasure. To build a flowerbed at the cottage with your own hands, and then admire the result, you need to draw up a site plan for laying the future flower garden. Armed with a pencil and a sheet of paper, sketch out a plan taking into account the real dimensions of the future flowerbed. Planning a place for a flower garden is necessary with the most favorable hit of sunlight. Many plants need a shadow or partial shade, this should be taken into account when planting plants and flowers. If the site is located on level ground, then you should protect the stands from strong winds by constructing a fence or planting resistant plants from the leeward side.

A fascinating lesson is the design of a flower garden on a site with a strong slope. There is a place for imagination, the realization of the most daring ideas, from creating a patio, a platform at different levels, to decorating the terrace.

Varied colors or monochrome flower garden

There should not be a riot of color on the site, planted plants in the same color scheme will become a beautiful oasis. Combining colors and styles, experienced gardeners create a constant flowering mixborder. It is recommended to use more than two dozen varieties of plants, grouping them according to the height of the plants and the timing of future flowering.

Having compiled a list and determining the location of perennials, they select flowers with similar needs for moisture, light and frequency of watering.

All-season plants, such as conifers or shrubs with beautiful foliage, look attractive.

Decorative cereals (reedweed, sheep, miscanthus, millet, foxtail pennisetum) perfectly complement floral arrangements.

To create interesting thematic installations, several containers with planted flowers, ceramic figures of animals, birds, fairy-tale characters are used, a solar lantern, a scattering of large and small stones of different colors and other stylish decor elements complementing the composition are added. A small artificial pond from a tank filled with water looks stylish and pairs of green “frogs” surrounded by creeping flowers and sedge.
