Landscape gardening represents the special decoration of the outdoor area around the house so as to meet certain style characteristics. It was during the 19th century that the concept became popular. People know landscaping under the name of English Gardens, because the English were the first to impose the trend. Most home owners will try do-it-yourself options, while others will hire professional designers to create some fanciful decoration.
The hedge and lawn cut make the basics of landscape gardening. Then, the flower arrangements, the presence of fountains with water statues or rocks, small bridges and special lighting systems contribute to the artistic effect specific to landscape gardening. With a bit of effort and some investments you can even preserve the same colors all year round by planting new flowers every season.
The flowers, bushes and trees are incredibly important for landscape gardening. The most daring of effects can be achieved by working on these elements. The flower arrangements in the beds often follow complementing color lines, while occasionally, mono-color designs are preferred. Landscape gardening is not possible with plenty of work, time and effort. River rocks, gravel, sand and carved wood make great matches in landscape gardening too, but every artistic detail has to be exploited at the maximum.
Normally, landscape gardening is different depending on the alternation night-day. And the outdoor lighting system contributes to the modifications and the look of the garden immensely. At night, the trees, bushes and plants only offer you shadows that you can play with and make more or less appealing with the careful location of light fixtures in the most unexpected of places. For instance, use small lights to show the way along the alleys, and create a touch of mystery by hiding the lights in the background.
Last but not least, the presence of a porch or a gazebo is very important for landscape gardening, together with the choice of the specific wooden garden furniture. It is important to adapt all these elements to the features of the house, the size of the garden and the overall decor. The main objective of landscape gardening should not be that of showing off but rather of creating an atmosphere that you love. Personal satisfaction and comfort definitely come first here!
