addition to the basic principle of placing flowers in the garden but the presence of suitable conditions for them, it is useful to remember a few varieties planted themselves, as well as rules relating to the composition of flower beds.
special "use" is highlighted in the individual plant description for it.
Variety of flower beds:
beds (in generalizing the meaning of the word) is any plot allocated for cultivation and dekorativnotsvetuschie Dekorativnolistvennye plants.
flowerbed - flower regular shape (circle, oval, square, rhombus).Plants are planted in a flowerbed from its center (most tall species) to the sides (undersized fillets plants);it is desirable to reinforce the edge of a small fence or sod.
ridges - a strip of decorative plants, located along the track;Flowers are planted on it in regular rows.It looks nice if rabatkag plants composition includes a large color spots and stripes.
Mikeborder - in contrast to the ridges, separates the higher planting, fences, walls, etc. It can be incl
Border - planting low-growing plants (usually monocultural) one row along the lawn, paths, etc.
Alpine hill -.. Up the hill from the ground with stones, most often made in the form of terraces.Plants are selected on the botanical and geographical basis;Stones are the backdrop for the plants.To her close and rock garden, characterized in that the plants (in vivo are also natives of mountainous terrain) not planted between the stones, and in their cracks filled with a nutrient mixture.
rocky land - flat area with plants of different sizes or mountain steppe origin.
Green lawn - land seeded cereals;usually ringworm.
Moorish lawn - a lawn, where, in addition to cereals, included flowering annuals.
Hedge - used for protection against dust and wind from ordinary planting shrubs and small trees.Maybe ringworm (usually small-leaved species, forming a large number of shoots) and nestriguscheysya (usually dekorativnotsvetuschie shrubs).
Pergola - arched mounting for climbing plants from the arch located metal rods.In common parlance it is often referred to simply as the arch.As a rule, a pergola is placed over the track, at least - on the narrow courtyard.
Green gazebo - construction of wood or metal, lined along the periphery of curly perennials, stems and leaves that create its "wall" and "roof".Sometimes gazebos do not build special, and help in using post lianopodobnye tying the stems between trees or tall shrubs.
The lattice - serves to support climbing plants decorative lattice, which can be used in unimproved areas of the garden.
rules of "good taste" in the distribution of plants:
• For group planting is best to use plants with different flowering periods - so faded or not yet blooming fit into the song in the background and "take the baton" at the right time.Let crocuses and violets are replaced by a late-tulips and hyacinths, and so on.With proper arrangement of flower plants will be pleasing to the eye from early spring to late autumn.
• Plants in the group planting should be selected so that they are in harmony with each other in size and color of the bush itself, as well as the shape of the leaves.Too small a number too large will look almost comical.
• Try to avoid colors proximity to the so-called "core" coloring - red, yellow and blue.should be placed dekorativnolistvennye species between them.
• placed at the same distance from the observer plants with flowers in warm colors (red, orange, brown) will seem closer than plants cold colors (blue, blue).By placing "cold" colors in the background, you can call the illusion that the flower is much more than it actually is.
• Between the red and bright yellow flowers look good white, but next to a lemon-yellow color effect not only increases, and even decreases - these colors "diluted" with each other.
• Shrubs should be selected based on the color of their leaves and fruits at the end of the growing season.Light-loving culture to fall, as a rule, become yellow or orange color, shade-tolerant - darker.
• Do not overload the garden too large variety of plants.
If you're going to grow flowers for cutting (ie bouquets), their location is not so important for this common bed can be removed.But still pleasant, even if her plants will be located grammotno and tasteful.
