How to position greenery in your landscape
When designing your landscape, you may be wondering what kind of plants and flowers complement each other. How do you decide where to place your plants? How do you strive for an aesthetic look but with a function that is practical? How do you ensure that the landscape continues to flourish and look good? How are you going to maintain it? Here are a few tips to maintain a creativeand practical focus in your landscape.
Group according to planttypes
It is better to assemble a group of plants together rather than placing each individually at different points. An isolated plant gives a hollow impression to the viewer, while a group of plants gives a blossoming adornment to the environment.
Place them according to the same type. Place the bushes together, ferns at another area, and flowering plants separately.
Group according to colour
Next, group plants together in the same way that you colour-match different apparels and clothing. Group them according to bright and dull colours. For example, red and pink blossoms go well together, as well as orange and yellow flowers.
Vary the texture
The colours are important, but there are more considerations like the textures of the plant. Placing the same textures together can provide a soothing look, but there is room for variation. Bringing out different textures together can highlight an enthralling contrast that interests the viewer. As plants and their leaves come in different shapes and sizes, there are many possibilities to mix and match your designs.
Group according to growing needs
However, beyond aesthetics, there is a need to group plants according to how they grow so that this reduces the effort needed to maintain them. Each plant type has different sunlight, water and soil requirements. Thus, you must consider the plant’s needs.
There are countless considerations and planning to ensure that the landscape is both beautiful and functional.
In conclusion, it can be helpful to engage an established landscape contractor to do ensure that your landscape is well maintained.
