How to Make a Residential Garden

No matter if you are going to build a simple and small home garden or a large and ample garden, some details and care are the same and should be carefully evaluated to ensure the success of your endeavor as a gardener. Let's start by talking about the place:

Set the location and size of the garden

The first step is to define the location and size of the garden. You can opt for a small garden in front of the house, picking up only a part of the available area, or else create a garden that covers the entire entrance. Another option is to make the garden by the wall, especially if your house is all closed without internal vision.

It is still possible to build a garden in the back of the house. See which place is most interesting for you and your family. The important thing is to take into consideration that one of the main functions of the garden is to beautify the house.

When choosing the location for the garden, find out in advance what the incidence of sun, shade, rain and winds are in the area. These conditions alter the development of the plants and are fundamental for the garden to go forward.

How much time do you have?

Another important aspect that should be taken into account when planning the garden is to determine how much time you have available to take care of that space. The longer, the greater the variety of plants that can be grown, the more recommended it is for those who have little or no time the most recommended is for easy maintenance plants and the same family, as these usually require similar care.

Choose the plants

The choice of plants must take into consideration two crucial factors that we have already mentioned here: time of dedication and the conditions of the place where the garden will be made.

Some plant species need abundant sunlight to develop, others, however, only live in the shade and there are still those who enjoy sun and shade. You must choose the species from these variables. One tip is: species with flowers and fruits, mostly require more than six hours a day of direct sunlight, since foliage and shrubs tend to live very well in the shade.

If time is no problem for you can invest in species with flowers, which naturally require more care. A good bet is lavenders, daisies, azaleas, pansies, petunias, begonias and vincas

For those who have a full schedule, the foliage is a great choice as it does not require much care and maintenance is simple. You can bet on the numerous varieties of palm trees and going to the most delicate species like the lilies of peace, it is still possible to grow swords of Saint George, anthuriums, cacti and succulents.

Regardless of the species chosen, always remember to search for the preferences of irrigation, fertilization, pruning and light of each one of them.

Before beginning the planting it is also interesting to seek landscaping references to guide you in the style and the best layout of the plants. A tropical style garden combines with banana trees, palm trees, starlets and ferns, for a romantic and Provencal look for roses, lavenders and camellias. Oriental-inspired gardens combine with pine trees and small, well-trimmed shrubs, and, of course, bamboos.

Cacti and succulents are the face of a rustic garden, while the foliage guarantees a visual uniformity and can form modern, elegant and sophisticated façades.

Decoration of the garden

When talking about garden decoration one of the first things that comes to mind are the traditional and fun garden dwarfs, but the decoration of this space goes far beyond that.

In this case, consider making room for pleasant lighting, capable of enhancing landscaping even more. Nowadays it is possible to rely on LED bulbs that are safer, stronger and durable for outdoor environments. The lighting can be directed to some specific plant or you can still choose to create an illuminated path.

The water fountains or mini lakes create movement and fill the garden with peace and tranquility. How about taking the benches to the garden too? In this way you increase the comfort of the place and still creates a more inviting environment for moments of rest. And finally, think of the use of stones to create paths and crossings between the garden and the garden.
