At first, it seems like designing your flower garden is a scary prospect. Once you've planted your flowers, it might be a bit hard for you to tear them up if you don't like the layout, so it's very important to get it right from the beginning.
You might find it easy to come up with a great garden design if you're an artist. But if not, then you may struggle with certain things like where to put everything, which varieties to use, and what colors to use. However, you can still design a beautiful flower garden even if you're not an artist or a landscaping professional.
Texture is one of the most important parts of designing a flower garden. Flowers of different shapes and heights should be used. You should include plants with various sizes of flowers, different leave shapes and sizes, etc. Variety is very important to the aesthetics to of your flower garden. If you have too many flowers that are similar, then it could be very boring.
As you design your garden, you need to keep the seasons in mind. Perhaps you'd want your garden blooming throughout the year as much as possible or you'd rather focus on a particular season.
If you want your garden to bloom mostly in the spring, you might want to choose pinks and purples, or you might want to go with classic tulip colors such as red and yellow. A lot of spring-blooming flowers are yellow, so that's a very classic color for the season.
You can use white and blue for the summer and by adding red, you can have a 4th of July garden! Spring and fall colors can also be used for your summer garden.
Fall flower gardens should probably contain reds, yellows, and orange. These colors would look great with the orange and browns of the fall leaves. For fall gardens, African Marigolds would be wonderful.
You don't have to stick with these colors, but you'll definitely need to choose colors that go well together. For example, you probably don't want to mix orange, purple, and blue together. For a wildflower garden, it's better to use a wide variety of colors.
You can use a wide range of colors if your intention is the wild and natural look. But if you want a more refined or elegant garden, you need to be careful to choose colors that complement each other well.
Remember that the height of the flowers you plant should vary. If you're planting flowers near a border of some sort, like a fence or wall, then you should plant taller varieties in the back, gradually planting shorter and shorter flowers as you move forward. Then a low-lying ornamental grass should be planted in the front as a border between the flowers and the walkway.
Planting annuals may not be the best choice since they need to be replanted each year. You should mix annuals in with perennials. Being relaxing is one of the best things about flower gardens. It's not relaxing if it's too much work.
