Landscape Design Ideas to Improve Your Garden
It is essential to upgrade the landscape around your home to create a relaxing outdoor area and keep it free from unwanted insects and reptiles. You only have to consider the budget when considering landscaping services. This is especially true if you want to improve the garden in your front yard or create a seating area and dining area in your backyard. You can turn any open space around your home into a relaxing retreat by adding the correct details. This will depend on the budget you can allocate. To maintain a well-groomed appearance, landscaped areas require regular maintenance, including weeding and watering. You can hire a gardener to help you with this. Consider these beautiful landscaped spaces designed by our Landscape Architects before you start your own.
Garden with layers
This house’s white facade is complemented by a beautifully manicured lawn and carefully placed shrubs. This garden has been built with a plan, using different sections for each plant variety to create a structured appearance.
Pergola in the garden
The owners created a garden with a mixture of flowering plants and shrubs along the border to ensure privacy. The area adjacent to the porch has been neatly laid out in geometric grassy shapes pleasing to the eye. The pergola is ideal for picnics in the summer and winter barbecue parties.
In tropical countries such as India, the rainy seasons can turn all the burned-out shrubbery into lush greenery. The local species have been used to keep the tropical paradise green throughout the year.
Forests border the property.
This Asian-style Front Garden has a large area and is designed with a typical layout. It includes stone paths, trimmed bushes along the way, decorative flower beds, and thick foliage from trees along the border. The focus is on simplicity rather than an abundance of greenery.
Here, the focus was to create a comfortable zone in the garden using minimal fuss. The black marble table and chairs set amongst green bushes develop a feeling of a secret garden surrounded by white footpaths and borders.
Typical European garden
The Italian, French, and English styles strongly influence European gardens. Ornamental plant varieties are prevalent in these styles. In addition to elegant flowering plants, geometrically shaped fences, and various garden ornaments such as stone statues and arbors, you can also find fountains, stone statues, and pergolas. The garden shown here is informal, like an English garden. It has naturalized plants and no geometric hedges.
Earthy Indian backyard
Here, the focus was on creating an evening comfort zone rather than a garden. The rough limestone flooring is typical for country homes with large backyards where elders can chat around a fire while the children play. Landscapers used innovative techniques to cover the wall in greenery while the tree spread like an umbrella. The raised yellow sandstone bed expands the tree’s roots, while the stone-paved flooring will keep insects and reptiles away from the relaxation area.
The garden has been designed in English, with flower beds and arbors bordering the stone-paved pathways. Small colorful shrubs restrict the area between the lawn and the garden. A few pots of ornamental plants have been placed strategically to give the garden a Mediterranean feel.
If you have limited space, choose a neat and small space with all the landscaped yard features and minimal maintenance. Artfully designed and maintained shrubs and plants soften the appearance of a dull stone border wall.
