How to organize your garden or balcony

07 Jan, 2020

    Whether during construction, renovation of your house or simply by wanting to change, landscaping your garden is a long job. Knowing how to place plants, trees, a vegetable patch and furniture in a garden is no small task. Calling on a professional can quickly increase the bill depending on the area to be exploited. This is why, I give you some avenues to use to create your own garden plan.

1.       Define your desires and needs

    First, you will need to list the amenities you want to put in your garden: terrace, barbecue area, outdoor kitchen, swimming pool, pond, vegetable patch, orchard, flower beds, promenade, patio, hammock, etc. Then, define the plants you would like to plant.

2.       Respect the terrain

    Identify already existing elements in your garden such as trees, slopes, hedges. if necessary, you can delete certain elements. Otherwise, you will have to compose your garden with the present nature.

    In order to choose what type of plants will make up your garden, you must determine what the nature of the soil is: clay, loamy, humus, sandy or limestone. Likewise, you should note the areas of shade and sunshine as well as the daily amount of sunshine.

    A vegetable garden will rather be located in an unshaded and well sunny area.

3.       Find your style

    Get inspired on specialized sites and magazines to give you ideas and guide the style of your garden. Remember to stay consistent with your home, colors, architectural style, etc.

4.       Prefer round and sinuous shapes

    Nature is rarely square and rectilinear, for a wild and natural garden, prefer sinuous shapes for paths and rounded flower beds, avoiding symmetry. If you opt for a more modern garden, you can put beds in geometric shapes, but do not prune the plants in a straight line, it would break the naturalness of the plants.

5.       Compose with volumes and colors

    To choose the plants in your garden, you have to think of them as adults. To give relief to your garden, you have to play with the seasonality of the plants, their shape, height and color.
