Some thoughts about garden design

Garden design has a lot in common with art. The same as art it helps us to express ourselves, our styles and even our cultures. As a nice dress can add charm to an ugly person, in the same way a simple house looks absolutely new and great if it has a garden.

If you are lucky enough to own a huge cottage with a vast land area, then you possibly won’t do without professional advice to achieve harmony between your house and the surrounding landscape. But with a small garden you can definitely cope yourself.

First of all, remember that you plan your garden for you and your family, so make your design practical and functional. A front garden undoubtedly should be easy to keep looking tidy. Choose appropriate plants and materials for it.

To create an eye-catching pattern, combine lawn and hillside landscaping.

And it wouldn’t be enough a couple of wheelbarrows of land to do that. You will definitely need heavy machinery. There are firms that rent articulated trucks out. You can call them.

Combine these patterns in your garden design, compliment it with effective lighting and enjoy yourself with you family in your dream yard.

I wish I could be read better in Spanish, but I found a great site that will be of help with my veggies. Most tutoring net companies just sell netting and have no real expertise in agriculture. Hortomallas has a great library available to farmers as tutora means tutor as referred to a plant. I ran into this site by mere chance as I was trying to find the ideal product to tutor my backyard vegetables, and did not know that using netting reduces viruses and fungi. I will try now to go 100% organic!
