A garden serves not only to beautify our home, but also to provide fresh and clean air. With the presence of a garden, whether it is backyard garden or front yard garden, our house will look way more attractive, green, cool, and fresh. Then, how to design a good garden? Here are several important steps in designing a good garden:
Whatever be the current trend, if it does not give comfort to you, you should not need to follow it. For example, now the frangipani tree (Adenium) is widely sought. However if you think that the presence of frangipani (Adenium) makes you feel like being at a funeral, you do not have to force yourself to follow the trend.
2. Design balance
We need to pay attention to the function of the plant in addition to its aesthetic value. Some are commonly used as medicinal plants and herbs. Well, the position of the garden with these plants should be easily accessed. For instance, if you want to take the pepper, make sure the pepper tree is easily accessed from the kitchen.
3. Health needs
Trees are believed to soften a room. This does not mean that the trees become the last alternative in designing a room. But we need to know that the plants in the pot can provide a good psychological effect. If you fill the corners of the empty spaces with pot plants, the surrounding area will become way healthier.
4. Plant characters
A garden should be able to enjoy anytime. This is a major concern because, after all, you as a homeowner will be in the building of your house for an uncertain future. This relates to the selection of appropriate plant characters. For example, on the back wall of the house there is a plant that should be in an equal high level to the eye. Trees which are laid out like that one do not interfere with the comfort of home.
One purposes of a garden is to beautify your home. Create a garden with plants that can embellish your home design then. The garden beauty should go hand in hand with the building beauty.
Those are five considerations to create a good garden design for your home. Make the most of your living space by creating a garden which is not only beautiful but also provides comfort for you and your family members.
