Professional gardeners conversing with other such know that one is already tired of observing the natural settings. One wants to draw inspiration for new garden designs from nature. That’s wonderful!
In 2014, too, do I want to achieve exactly that and you?
In your opinion, what are the advantages of breaking the garden rules? It gives me more joy, gives free rein to my creativity, a stronger connection to the land and a better sense of wildlife and nature around us.
Here are 13 strategies by which you can transform the garden. You’re just going to get the ideas right, just before the new plant catalogs pop up.
Innovative garden design
- Tidy up the lawn
This action takes me so much time that I use only a third of this effort for the real garden design. In addition, the turf consumes too much water and fertilizers, and birds and insects can not find anything on it. In my opinion, you can use the lawn as a running or negative surface.
Change the height
- Change the height
You can attach the plants anywhere if they have enough surface and light they need. I like most the garden design, which are lower in the foreground and higher in the background. However, one can partially deviate from this method and thus provide a visually appealing appearance. If you really want to be rebellious, put high plants to the front.
Make for a varied structure

In this example here we have used the so-called method of odd numbers. But do not we have to do with the nice final opposition of leaf texture and plant structure? Is not that wonderful? You have so many neat corners and you ensure an excellent use of the room.
More flurry and mass in garden design

Are you doing the plants that are removed from their family, not suffering? Think of the beauty they will achieve when you put them into groups. I think that such a garden design can look great on both large and small surfaces. But my advice would be to adjust the variation of species to the size of the area. So the apparition will look calm and not crowded.
Plant the hills

Who tells you that you can not do that? For this you must, however, choose plants with fibrous roots or those that spread very aggressively. If it’s a plant from this region, you do not have to worry too much about it. Its evolution will happen by itself!
Distribute the plants unevenly in the sense of a beautiful garden design

If you like the landscape with plants like soldiers, please do so – this is your garden! But you could also create a bold and exciting and more natural appearance by staggering the plants. Put two plants very close together and then one – relatively far away. This opens the eye and you have the feeling of freedom when you look at the result.
Gartengestaltung mit mehr Ziergräsern
- Garden design with more ornamental grasses
I think in the direction of winter and a winter garden can be more interesting, especially if he has more ornamental grasses. Furthermore, these help in the summer to reach the previously enumerated points. Actually, I would say that giving up on them involves a lot of restrictions. Because the grasses contribute to the maintenance of soil humidification, create your habitat and complement the habitat of many plants.
Block the view and create a living space

If you have a larger area, you could divide it into wonderful little areas. I also find the crossed view, which one can achieve by this super exciting! I want to be surprised, curious, what awaits me on the other side.

- Create beds with curves, make them even ragged
Do not be afraid to make the edges surprisingly bulging or unexpectedly sharp. Make the basic padding deeper. Trust me – they will give the plants the opportunity to breathe and make the room breathe.
Avoid too tight a design of this. I would design them so that you can bend these and also provide them with seating.

Above all, they should know in which ambience they were cared for. If these pesticides have their leaves, it is very bad for insects and wildlife in general.
