how to design your garden well

The garden has always been considered an outdoor area and, if we want, extraneous to the house, today it is gaining more and more importance, gaining a prominent place within the architectural design.

No longer an external area but an extension of the house itself, therefore not only plants and flowers but also architectural elements such as walls and floors that reflect the external and internal architecture of the house for a perfectly harmonious environment. Garden design is a particular operation that must take into account a series of elements: spaces, personal tastes, functionality, lighting, the irrigation system, the choice of plants or flowers, all this trying to minimize maintenance.

How to design a garden The garden thus becomes a small oasis of peace, in which you can isolate yourself from the daily grind and experience moments of pure and regenerating relaxation, alone or with your family. A place where nature and technology come together to offer maximum peace and comfort.

In the design of the garden, of course, a predominant role is played by green in all its facets, the perfect combination of plants and flowers, but also the combination of colors is very important to make a garden harmonious and spectacular.

Whatever your idea of ​​a garden, small, large, English, or the Mediterranean, you cannot ignore the design.

Do-it-yourself design is certainly cheaper than that entrusted to expert designers, today on the web it is possible to take advantage of programs, some even free or in 3D, through which you can fix the initial idea and the first one on the PC phase of the design. Each type of garden has a different philosophy and conception of taste, among other things, and this also requires a different design:

The English garden was born in the eighteenth century and a garden that is essentially characterized by its irregular shapes and somewhat wild nature, a green space that invites exploration. An English garden can also be reproduced in limited areas but it is obvious that to perform at its best it will need large spaces.
The Italian garden was born in Italy around the fifteenth century in noble villas, it is an elegant garden, the hedges with geometric and well-defined shapes and perfectly distributed colors create an orderly, harmonious and refined environment.
The Mediterranean garden perfectly reproduces the scents and colors of the Mediterranean scrub, it is a well-kept garden but at the same time, it must be left a little in the wild. What characterizes the Mediterranean garden is also the presence of trees with large foliage, in order to create shade, and of succulent plants, resistant to the climate and which do not require frequent irrigation.
Whatever kind of garden you prefer, it certainly pays more if you have a certain space available but can easily be reproduced even in more limited spaces, such as a terrace. In this way, even nature lovers who live in the city center and hardly have access to an outdoor green area will still be able to take advantage of their terraces by creating a tailor-made garden.
