If you want to try your hand at planning a garden, even a small one – let’s remember about 3 important rules that will make everything in its place.
The garden should be arranged so as to ensure rest for all family members. For some, the most important thing is to create a meeting place with friends, for others – it is important to grow vegetables and herbs, so you should create a vegetable garden with flower beds.
To make a conceptual sketch, you can use a geodetic foundation with marked world directions, slopes, installations. In addition, trees and shrubs (remaining in the garden) and larger objects adjacent to the plot are applied to it, which may affect, for example, its shade or nature.
The garden and body of the house should harmonize with the surroundings (the wicker fence perfectly blends the rural garden into the landscape, but in a large city is controversial). In a small garden, simplicity of composition and attention to details matter.
A small garden will seem larger if plants with grayish foliage are in the background (in large, plants are planted in loose groups and thanks to the naturalness of the composition, you do not need to take care of the details). Before we determine the exact location of the gazebo, rebate or pavement, let’s divide the space into zones with different functions (representative – in front of the house, leisure – behind the house, usable – with a vegetable garden, economic – e.g. with a woodshed). When choosing vegetation, consider the soil type and groundwater level.

A beautiful, well-kept and colorful garden requires not only a good plan, but also regular care. It takes at least a few, if not a dozen years for plantings to achieve the desired size. Beginners who like garden art can easily make mistakes in arranging a garden space. Below are the most common ones.
Mistake number 1: lack of a good space development plan
Everything starts with the project. When building a house as well as arranging the space around it, it’s worth using the services of a professional designer to get a functional, relaxing and aesthetic space. Garden design is the same art as interior design. Being at this stage, it is worth answering the question: how much time can I devote to garden care? The number and type of plants that will be in the home space depends on their response.
Mistake number 2: no specification as to what the garden should be used for
The number and nature of household members determine the needs for space around the house and the amount of ideas about how it should look. It is worth specifying your vision of the garden to talk to the designer in showing him the direction in which we want to go. An older couple, who value planting in the form of fruit trees, strawberries or raspberries, may have different needs, while a busy couple with two young children, who is not able to spend more time on home gardening, may have other needs.
Mistake number 3: failure to take into account the surrounding conditions
Designs 4 Gardens must take into account the specificity of the area and the world. Ideally, when the garden is established on the south side – then after returning from work you can enjoy the warm sunshine longer.
Mistake number 4: ignoring the fact that the plants are growing
One of the key points in the design of a new garden is to consider how much space an adult plant will need. Among novice gardeners, a common mistake is to plant too many plants on one square meter, which means that they constantly have to compete with each other for sunlight and nutrients.
Mistake number 5: position mismatch for the plant
This is an equally common mistake that makes more demanding plants, planted in places that are inappropriate for them, begin to wither in the eyes and eventually die completely.
