Find out how best to project your personality in the garden
The successful garden design reflects the needs and the soul of the owners. Some of us are artists who use plants, boulders and even linen to paint a picture of themselves and the way we see the world.
Many of us are collectors who like to show the treasures we collect. Others among us are philosophers who look at everything in depth and one garden to enjoy the loneliness and reflection. Are you the last type of people?
If so, the following tips will help you a lot.
Magnificent garden design
Whether the style of the garden is contemporary, Asian or rural, the principles and goals are incredibly similar. Can it be that philosophers and aesthetes have the same needs, regardless of personal background?
Sometimes these gardens are paradoxical, very complex in design, but very similar in appearance!
Let’s look together at their design rules and create a garden that meets the needs of a philosopher!
The philosophers consciously perceive the forms and their effect on the human mind. The spheres, for example, symbolize perfection, perfection, and equality.
Notice how they are provided with an interesting texture in this contemporary garden. See also how their positioning creates an atmosphere of peace and introspection. If these were all together in a group under a shrubbery, you would have a completely different effect!
The philosophers love the independent appearance of form and its own meaning.
This Asian garden has a very different look than the previous one. But you will surely notice that their message and the emotions that caused them are very similar to the previous ones.
Obviously, the focus has been on items that are very similar. Both gardens speak for boldness, simplicity and tranquility.
Garden designers have often had experience with people who first want to have an Asian garden. After a discussion it turns out that they actually want a design that is simple, relaxed and provocative. A professionally designed garden can fulfill these conditions, regardless of the style.
The philosophers place a high value on the balance in the Landscaping , So you remove the feeling of cognitive dissonance and achieve a peaceful mood.
Here one reaches a typical asymmetrical equilibrium. This appeals to the philosophers more than the formal symmetrical harmony. The asymmetric balance simply means that the visual weight of the components must always be the same and not that both sides must be equal. The asymmetric balance seems to more inspire your thoughts while the formal balance does it all for you.
Every garden has a floor. The philosophers prefer a substrate that is simple, uniform and monochromatic, that is, one that will show the plants in their best appearance. Pebbles, cracked stones and sand are popular choices.
If you had decided instead for peat instead, the appearance would be completely different. The perceived value of the objects and the plants would be undermined and diminished.
The gardens of philosophers contain few plants, if any. Actually, the philosophers regard a large amount of flowers as a feast for the eyes, which hides the real beauty of the garden. Instead, you would prefer the pure forms and leaves.
As if from a fairytale come this flower species
But a well-positioned flowering shrubbery can also be thought-provoking. See how the rose bushes with blossoms in different stages (with the unfolding petals and raindrops) in this image promote self-reflection in a way that would be unattainable even for a sea of petunias.
Sometimes plants with unique textures attract much more attention than flowers. A wonderful example we see here – Arctostaphylos manzanita. The peeling tree bark and the subtle forms of brown soothe and stress the mind. Conifers, Ahoren and monumental grass could also find their way into the garden of the philosophers, because they show a unique shape and texture.
The philosophers are attracted by garden art, which inspires thinking through the repetition of shapes, colors and textures in different places.
One-of-a-kind sculptures, such as this piece, are shown in front of the multilevel formal fountains, trees made of wine bottles and boldly colored contemporary art.
Art made of glass
This is another, very successful decision for a philosophical garden. Watch the remarkable quality of these pieces, which make it possible for them to both reflect and record the light.
When deciding on gardening, you should be aware that falling branches and hailstorms can cause significant damage.
The philosophers usually strive to emphasize the natural elements that illustrate the contrasts and illustrate universal truths! You can see a part of a Mediterranean garden here. I dug up some tree roots that had grown over a very large boulder. This was part of my futile attempt to transplant this plant into fertile soil. I felt addressed by the sculptural vignette. I have there decoded a story about strength and conflict with eventual dissolution and peaceful coexistence. This is a lesson I want to think about more during the day to get a better understanding of it.
The philosophers love the simple, soulful sounds in the garden. This additional aspect is often overlooked. Bells, sound games, water equipment, ornamental glasses make for unique sounds in the garden.
Every garden needs a seat. The philosophers carefully position the benches so that they can catch the light at a certain time of the day. I have already installed a flat boulder on one side of the waterfall.
