Who doesn’t love a series of trees, evenly cut shrubs, ornamental plants, colorful flowers? A nice landscape not only enhances the way your home looks but also the surroundings. The landscape gardeners at at Geelong & Torquay do a great job in developing your landscape. Careful study and knowledge are required in developing a landscape. There are many things required to be built, planted, grown for a landscape to take shape. The compositions of a landscape are as follows.
Landscape design without a boundary would be incomplete. Defining borders makes the property attractive as compared to the open-ended ones. You can give a finished look to the landscaped yard or the front lawn simply by placing stone walls along the boundary or by applying a fence all over. You can opt for a wooden fence build-up or can go with fence designs made up of different materials such as PVC vinyl. There are numerous options available nowadays in wood as well as other materials. Choose the one that suits best to your needs.
- Hedges and shrubs
Plantation of hedges that are trimmed uniform can serve as a living wall to the landscape. If you want your garden to have a completely natural look then, hedges can be the best frame for the property. On the other hand, loosely connected shrubs such as boxwood and forsythia can even form a natural wall in their natural shape.
- The entryway of the home
The entrance of the home is the first look and so should always be catchy to the eyes. You can have uniform grass on both sides of the pathway. Another option can be to place potted floral plants of different species along the sides to make a colorful entrance.
- Container plants
Plantation in vases forms container gardens that are easy to maintain as they are mobile components. Changing landscape designing is frequently possible with potted plants. The pots can accommodate small space landscapes. Besides, one can have the facility to grow tropical flowers even in a cold climate as you can keep the pots indoor in extreme climate conditions. At places, where digging is a question, such as porches, decks, and pathways container garden design is the only solution.
- Colorful plants
To achieve a beautiful landscape, choose plants that display a range of color schemes to add beauty to the front lawn or backyard. Flowery shrubs and bushes such as that of hibiscus can be a good choice. Trees with flowers at a few distances can also enhance the beauty of the garden.
- Water bodies
Water fountains have always been visually appealing. Install it somewhere in the center of the landscape and enjoy the soothing sound of water. You can also have a small water body or a pond either in between or along the driveway’s side that will not only enhance the overall look but can be home to fishes and other water animals. Also, water bodies attract birds that chirp and produce melodious sounds. This can be an absolute treat to your ears.
