When deciding to rearrange our gardens, many seem to think that planting a couple of green pots and flowers will definitely do the job. However, this is far from being true, the entire process needing a deeper analysis, a project that incorporates all the elements of a successful garden design. Below we have some of the steps frequently used by professionals in their landscaping projects.
You must set goals
No matter that we speak about a Totalprosjektering or a small adjustment, there must be some planning involved in the entire process. You must decide how you want your garden to look and feel, how you want it to be perceived by yourself and your visitors. If you want to adjust the way it looks, you could look into different types of flowers. For instance, if you want to give it a more forest-like look, opt for some plants without obvious flowers, for pines, ferns and so on. These are highly appropriate plants for northern areas, such as Norway. Also, you must set clear goals on how you want to use the space that you have. Do you want to use it for growing your own legumes? Then opt for plants that are appropriate for this purpose. Do you want it to serve as a great recreational space? Then go for it, and adapt it to your needs. If you think that you may lack such skills, then discuss what your options are with a team of skilled Prosjektering specialists. They will certainly have the ability to guide you through your decisions, especially if you take into account that not all gardens are suitable for the same plants. Take into account the ecosystem when planning your garden design, as you want to preserve and boost it, if possible.
Create a concept plan
Decide where you want all your elements to go. The paths, the stairs, the pond, if you plan to include one in your design, they all must be arranged in such a manner to complement each other and to fit the concept that you have in your head. Keep in mind that not all concepts fit the same purposes. An Utomhusplan will certainly work badly for your space. This is why many specialists still advise not trained individuals to reserve a part of their finances to hire a landscaping team, when deciding to rearrange their gardens.
Think about your plants
You have to be mindful of the plants that you plan to plant. Not all are equally resilient in various weather conditions. A great tip would be to discuss your options with a team of dedicated landscapers, since they all have the necessary knowledge to recommend various plants that will work wonderfully on your soil, and weather conditions, make pertinent care recommendations, and even advise you what plants you can consider if you want a design that will boost the ecosystem in your garden.
Keep in mind that not all ideas that you see in design magazines might work for your case. Maybe the soil in your garden is different, maybe the conditions on site don’t allow a certain design. This is why finding a team of landscapers with plenty of experience is the first step to consider.
