Decorating a flowerbed is no less important than creating the interior of your home. And if your lot is spacious enough, then its decoration is a “must-have” for you. You can create a flowerbed with your own hands. You can take as a basis ready examples, adding your solutions and ideas. Thus you can save on the services of famous landscape designers and gardeners, thereby investing more money in the realization of your blooming dream. Below you can read useful tips and take some cool advice:
Choose the right location
Ideally, it would be better to determine the location of the flowerbed during the construction phase of the plot, leaving the right amount of space for them. But if you have to start from an existing plan, then you need to be as serious as possible. It is better to create a flowerbed in the place where you are most often. If you like to read a book by the window, for example, then creating a flowerbed outside under the window is ideal for you. And if you like to sit on a bench in the yard, plan it across the street. Take into account the microclimate of the site, namely the presence of sunlight and its amount, the soil, its acidity, moisture, and fertility. This will help you choose the right plants. For example, most types of flowers prefer sunlight and do not like wind and stagnant moisture.
The type and shape of flowerbeds
There are 2 types of flowerbeds: regular (preferably low plants that bloom at the same time) and non-regular (most often found, no clear boundaries, plants with different periods of flowering, which allows you to admire the bed almost all year round).
Decorations for the bed
To make your flowerbed complete and look attractive, you need to take care of its decoration. The good news is that you can do it with improvised and often unnecessary materials, and there are a lot of ways to decorate it. If your hobby is weaving with vines, you can create a brilliant design for pennies. You can also use worn-out tires, teapots, crates, cans, or just about anything for decorating. Let your imagination run wild!
To make the flowerbed look as harmonious as possible, you need to consider the basic rules of color combination. Colors not only satisfy aesthetic needs but also have a psycho-emotional impact on people.
Contrast adds energy and strength, and multi-tone on the contrary soothes. But it should be understood that the excessive fade or notable contrast clearly will not add to the attractiveness of your plot. Cold shades are great for creating a background, and warm – to attract attention, that is, for the main plants.
A properly and beautifully designed flower bed can not only make you happy and add uniqueness to your plot but also emphasize its primary advantages or hide flaws.
