Natural-Looking Gardens

Natural-Looking Gardens

Natural-looking gardens are terribly popular now. They are fashionable, wildlife-friendly and practical, ideal for the not-so-tidy person or for anyone who is too busy for a fussy kind of garden. Wild roses and single-flowered shrub roses should be planted with perennials and grasses chosen to create a more natural, old-fashioned look. Examples include globe thistles (Echinops bannaticus), monkshood (Aconitum), and salvia (Salvia nemorosa). They also make good companions for many of the ornamental grasses such as blue oat grass (Helictotrichon), Festuca scoparia and F. ovina, which are also suitable as underplanting for floribunda and hybrid tea roses.

A Sunken Garden Design – You can make your garden more interesting by providing occasional  changes in level. By raising a garden or lowering a paved area, you can create small enclosures that are ideal as sheltered, outdoor living spaces especially when a retaining wall can double as bench seating. On the other hand, you may want to create a sunken haven for shade-loving plants or an elevated patch of lawn to act as a sun trap.

Benefits Of Vertical Garden – Also known as a bio wall, wall garden, or green wall, a vertical garden is a self-sufficient garden, which grows vertically and can exist both on the exterior or interior of a building. They usually consist of a growing medium that is encased by a strong membrane, which holds the plants in while allowing for plant growth and irrigation.

In addition to the break-taking scenery, vertical gardens have many outdoor and indoor benefits that make them an obvious choice.
