GARDEN DECORATION - STYLES, RULES AND NORMS, PRINCIPLES AND PREFERENCES
What can you dream of if the site is already landscaped? Now we need not only a competent layout, but also a reasonable decor - garden sculptures, original compositions, flower containers, arches, because the overall picture is created from little things.
The style of the garden is determined by the layout and plants, architectural forms emphasize it. The decor of the artifacts is important - it gives the site an individuality, reveals its image, brings in bright touches. Accessories complement herbal compositions or accentuate important nodes of the site, emphasize their function and significance. They fill the garden with cosiness and give a good mood.
MIXING STYLES IN A GARDEN
Often summer cottages are designed using Eclectic's favorite attributes of home life - a mixture of artistic styles, trends and compositional techniques. A popular and dynamic style of garden design often uses what is at hand. It’s usually transported to summer cottages that it’s a pity to throw away: worn or outdated items that store memories - old furniture, shoes, bicycles, tires, plumbing, tin barrels, cages, leaky troughs, broken watering cans, cans, bottles, dishes, are driftwood and trunks from the forest. Rare books are given a second life by locating on the site.
With a carefully thought-out design decision, garden decor becomes a highlight of the site. Sadly, if the site is designed without taking into account the peculiarities of the natural features of the landscape, its design does not support the architecture, it lacks internal logic. Bright plastic furniture in a home-made wattle fence and a stone Japanese lantern with metal forging with motifs of grape leaves look equally bad.
Eclecticism mixes 2-3 styles, no more. If space allows, the site is divided into regular and landscape parts - this combination allows you to realize interesting ideas. A simple way is to divide the site into functional zones logically connected with each other, each of which is designed according to its own principles. The zones have clearly defined borders - arches, trellises, hedges or wattle framed by greenery. The deliberate "negligence" of the site can favorably emphasize the variety of garden decor.
The style gives a wide field for self-expression, but is not simple when self-realization. Eclecticism can speak both about the lack of taste and its subtle manifestation. Mixing in reasonable proportions of elements belonging to different times and cultures can be harmonious and complete.
Garden decor is combined with each other and the style of suburban architecture, adhering to one theme, take into account the purpose of the decor - emphasis, dominant, accompaniment. The site is not cluttered with an abundance of garden elements (several arbors, garden sculptures, etc.). The materials from which the main buildings are made help to preserve the cottage ensemble. For example, brick construction is complemented by ceramic flowerpots.
Heterogeneous elements combine one repetitive artistic, functional technique or material: for example, repetitive color shades or form, garden figures dedicated to one theme, wooden furniture of different designs throughout the site. Strictly monitor the color solution: you should not make out garden furniture (small forms, fences) only in one color, you can enter similar colors or take into account the rules of the color wheel.
If you plan an interesting design of the site, the best solution is to study the basic requirements, canons and attributes of styles and directions in landscape design and adhere to a certain style. Garden style is its concept, semantic image.
Decorating the garden, you can not blindly copy the proportions, the location of elements, a set of plants: having caught the general direction, they connect their imagination and improvise according to the plot data. Often, country and country houses are designed in the spirit of antiquity (retro, country), imitating the geographical methods of other countries (Provence, Scandinavian style), or functionally rationalistically (American style) and others. Each owner chooses his view on the decor.
GOING TO THE VILLAGE
Rustic decoration very diverse in detail, in each country - its own version of rural life.
We make out in Russian with a bright front garden, “patchwork”, asymmetrically, with a lot of “village” handmade accessories. These are samovars, matryoshka dolls, shreds and rugs, handicrafts, wooden or wicker furniture and containers, benches and churbaks instead of chairs, a porch or a gazebo with carved pillars, platbands on windows, a picket fence, a log well, a Russian stove, a large stone.
The fence between the estates is exclusively made of wood, as simple as possible - no higher than 1,5 m, wattle with clay wings or a picket fence will do. Of particular emphasis is the old cart. Paths - winding soil or grass, courtyards - paved with cobblestone or saw cuts. And if you really want to add garden figures (hedgehogs, storks, ducks, hens, frogs), they choose not the brightest, but the most natural ones.
• The right combination of plants is also the secret to creating a garden style. Many plants are versatile and fit many styles.
• With the love of bright and exotic plants they are not planted in large numbers in one place. If an expensive garden with rare and beautiful plants is not maintained in a single “key”, it does not always look.
• Try not to use artificial plants and flowers to decorate the garden.
GARDEN IN COUNTRY STYLE
Country - the lifestyle of the American farm, attracts by the simplicity and naturalness of the corner. He is close in spirit to the majority of summer residents who are selected to the country only occasionally. Budget style, no complaints and embellishment - clean air, fruit and vegetable plants, flowers, it remains to supplement it with details ...
Lumber or siding summer cottages in areas of 6-12 acres organically look with simple garden furniture and "agricultural", often metal surroundings - household items that have failed (bucket, wheelbarrow, wheel, bicycle, old agricultural machinery, a kerosene lamp). They are complemented by baskets, birdhouses and bird feeders, straw stuffed animals and bales instead of furniture, decorative figures in the form of birds, pets and mythological creatures made of wood, stone or clay. Rough stained and planed wood is suitable for furniture. There should not be many accessories, otherwise they will clutter up and destroy the delicate harmony of the farm garden.
Old dishes and tins are great for breeding flowers and vegetables, even old shoes come in handy. They decorate the entrance zone, the economic zone or the garden. Utility rooms (shed, canopy) for tools and equipment - a great place to demonstrate rarities and new models ..
FOR COURT TO THE CRAFTSMAN
Art and Craft (art and craft) - An original needlework garden, “warm” and homely - many have long been intuitively in love with it, have taken root in summer cottages with an area of 4-15 acres. This is the contrast between free and reasonable creativity, industrial products and social standards.
Here in the landscape planning dominated by handwork in various miniatures and compositions, many bright plants and “stylish things”. They demonstrate decoupage, macrame curtains, patchwork plaids, leather products, ornaments and mosaic of bat tiles, painting on fences and walls, stained glass windows and painting on glass and stone, cast-iron parts, ceramics, wrought-iron and vintage lamps, wooden coatings. Use historical rarities, reflecting the time.
