Brighten up your garden

Posted on March 31, 2014 at 4:02 pm

Transform your dull and boring garden into a vibrant garden bursting with colours by turning green-fingered and planting some flowers. Pick three colours such as the British red, white and blue to brighten up any part of an unloved or untouched garden. This will give your garden a colour scheme without it being too fussy and creates interest to your garden.

You could even turn your garden into a flower spectrum by using ‘ The Flower Colour Theory’¬† A colour theory is basically all of the colours of the spectrum (red, orange, yellow, green, blue , indigo and violet) bent into a circle . Or contrast the colours of flowers to produce the most striking of combinations, for example mix some yellow flowers with purple flowers.

However, using colours does require planning as too many colours may get too much for the eye and it may look hideous rather than your initial plan of making your garden look better.

Designing Your Ideal Garden

Posted on March 18, 2014 at 11:30 am

Designing the garden of your dreams should be the goal of every avid gardener. It involves a great deal of fore-thought, creating an amalgamation of themes and features, taking into account the area you have to work with, and making everything suit the design of your home. Making sure that the design of your garden is in keeping with the design of your home is an important thing to remember when planning your gardens design. You need to take into account what exactly you want to be able to do with and in your garden. You may want to maintain a solid  space for children to play in your garden, or you could plan to use your space to grow food, or flowers. If you want a space for children, investing in a top quality grass turf is something you should consider, while making sure that the quality of your soil is high is an important factor of growing food or flowers in your garden. Once this is done, you can then decide upon the feature attractions of your garden. These could be a unique type of plant, or a wonderfully flowering tree, perhaps even a fountain or garden deck/patio. Creating spaces in which you can enjoy yourself, or get something from, should be the aim of your garden.
