Landscaping is usually a fairly big task, consuming much time and
energy. But before you hire that professional, here are some tips that
could save both time and money.
Here are the various landscape styles you can choose for your own garden:
a. Formal. This style uses lots of straight lines and perfect
geometrical shapes. Orderly arrangement of plants instead of random
positioning is employed. Close arrangement and pruning is seen on many
landscaped gardens with this style.
b. Informal. This kind of
landscaping workds well with cosy cottages. Beds with curved edges
instead of straight lines and random placement of plants suit this
c. English Garden. This style emphasizes the harmony between the house’s architecture and the garden.
d. Formal/Informal Garden. This style often comes with a brick walkway
that exudes formality. This walkway leads to the rear with a circle of
plants. The arrangement of plants resembles the English garden style but
it has no formal borders.
e. Oriental. It is often the kind of
garden found in small backyards. It uses rocks, evergreens and water. A
wide variety of plants create several interesting angles with this
f. Woodland. This landscaping suits a house that has a wooded backyard and sloping ground.
