GARDEN DECORATION - RULES AND NORMS, PRINCIPLES AND PREFERENCES
Absolutely tired of everything, that’s how a person works. And their favorite food, and a comfortable apartment, and relatives also sometimes "get it" so that I want to leave. Well, if you are tired of your own, dear, distressed and fostered garden, where a sea of ore and energy has been invested, then the matter is very bad. Here, and until depression is at hand. What to do? You can, of course, start over. And again to invest labor, strength and love ...
So it turns out a fairy tale about a white bull. I advise you to go the other way. Just change some element of the garden - or enter a new one.
MINI-WATER (for example)
Well, for example, to arrange a small pond, or a tiny waterfall, or a fountain. For this, almost nothing is needed. You can buy a special container or use an old baby bath. And then let your imagination run wild. Make a dump of marble chips or lay the edge of the reservoir with large stones. It is appropriate and garden figure - a frog, duck or a crane. It's always a good idea to pick up a pair of your sculpture or create a group of similar figures (PHOTOS on the screen saver).
Once there was a pond, it would be nice to build a small bridge.
Let the small, decorative, but it will be quite logical continuation of your idea (PHOTO 2). It's always fine when the design of the garden is subject to some idea or one element pulls the other. And of course, do not forget to decorate your pond with plants. If it is placed in the shade, ferns, astilba, hosts are appropriate.
In the background, structural plants are effective.
On PHOTO 1 it is hydrangea paniculate.
Shadow composition always brings a romantic mood. Therefore, here is quite appropriate path from the trees, as in PHOTO 3.
Here - we quickly and inexpensively built a pretty romantic garden, and do not have to change absolutely everything: you've already created a toy for several seasons. By the way, if you do not want to mess with clearing a pond or you have problems with water, create an imitation of water from colored pebbles - also funny.
Each of us loves garden sculptures. I myself sometimes freeze in the garden center or store in front of a pretty figure of a squirrel, or bunny, or dwarf. But I always stop, asking myself very simple questions: "Where will this squirrel run?" Or "To whom is the dwarf carrying gifts?". In other words - in what composition this or that image will be appropriate. But what to do with gifts? Gifted figurines, I always try to put it somewhere.
In May, there was an amusing incident. I walked around the garden with a figure of an owl and did not know which way to plant it. I was carefully observed by the eight-year-old boy Gosha, wondering why an adult aunt walked around the site with a toy. Then I turned to Gaucher: "Do you want to work as a magician? Here is an owl, she has magical power. Only she needs to find the right place. " The boy gladly agreed, and already he ran around the garden with an owl, which looked more natural.
And, now look at the PHOTO 4.
That's what an unusual design, or rather magical, decision was made by Ghosh. He planted an owl not under a tree, as an adult usually does, but on a cute dwarf spruce ordinary 'Nidiformis'. And then the movement began around the owl - the birds began to fly lower, the spruce woke up faster, firing young shoots. A neighbor dog came running to hunt game. In general, the banal figure became a focal point, by which no one passed indifferently.
Sometimes children offer unusual, or rather fabulous, solutions. Attract them to create new, interesting elements of the garden. They can offer something nontrivial.
In principle, I am against "building" garden sculptors at least "somewhere." If you really want to decorate your garden with figurines, try to come up with some interesting or non-standard design solution.
Look at PHOTO 5. How the touching sculpture of a she-wolf with a cub is beaten! Firstly, the place for sculptures is allocated by dumping - it cannot be overlooked. Secondly, there are two figures - this is a composition. LED lights add mystery to what is happening and at the same time bear a utilitarian character - illuminate the garden. And of course, plants - how would they be without them? This is part of the garden ...
Containers are planted quite ordinary begonia ever-flowering, which is very revitalized by stone dumping. Well, for the dynamics of the composition on a rock hill there is a lizard, ready to slip away at any moment. A stone hill is adorned with very few plants - a young mountain pine planted from the rear, and the bell of Portenschlag, its cold blue color giving a feeling of coolness in the heat.
