3 Tips & Some Different Styles in Landscaping your Garden

Landscaping can be a fairly big task, taking up alot of  energy and time. Before you hire a professional, here are some tips that could save you both money and time.

1. Take some time and think about exactly how you want the final design to be. Take account of the funcionality and style that your landscape will have. Do you want to include an entertaining area? A barbeque or cookout area? Do you want there to be an area for children to play, a fire pit, fishpond or a swimming pool? You will also need to think about what type of plants you want to be there. The main focus should, in most cases be on the areas where you spend most of your time. These questions are all a good starting point for your Landscaping project

2. If you are unable to do the Landscaping project yourself then you may want to hire a pro to take on the Landscaping project. A pro might give you expert advise on doing your project to save costly mistakes.

3. The style of your home is very important when choosing a Landscaping design. If you have a rural cottage with formal gardens surrounding it, it may look out of place. Also you want to think about how much time that you will be able to spend on your Landscaping once it's finished. Can you or do you want to spend many hours caring for a lot of beds of annuals or pruning beds of roses? If so, you may want to implement them into the planting proceedures, but if you would rather spend your free time on other things, then go for an easy care landscape and garden project.

Here are some of the different and various landscaping styles in which you can choose for your own garden:

  • a. The Formal style- uses a lot of straight lines and geometrical shapes. Orderly arrangement of plants instead of random positioning is implemented. Pruning and close arrangement is seen on very many landscaped gardens with this style.
  • b. The Informal style- landscaping works really well with cosy cottages. This style uses beds with curved edges instead of straight lines and random placement of plants, which can suit this landscaping style well.
  • c. The English Garden style- puts emphasis on the harmony between the house’s architecture and the garden. 
  • d. The Formal/Informal Garden style- often comes with a brick walkway that displays formality. This walkway leads to the rear with plants arranged in a circle. The arrangement of plants is reminding of the English garden style, but it has no formal borders or boundaries.
  • e. The Oriental style- can be found in large and small backyards. It uses water, evergreens and rocks. With this style a wide variety of plants create several interesting angles, giving it a whole different look.
  • f. The Woodland style- landscaping fits a house that has sloped ground and a wooded backyard.
