Does your landscape lack something in providing you the view you think you deserve? Follow this guide to get a better garden view.
Draw their eyes up.
Garden spaces will look larger if you were to draw the observer’s eyes up. Trees, tall shrubs, hanging plants like orchids and climbing vines do the trick neatly for this pointer. If you have a pergola, hang plants from its rafters or let vines gently claim it as its own.
Keep your greenery close to the ground.
From lush and verdant groundcovers to plants which thrive in low levels, these plants thrive on little space and gives you enough room to install furniture or other plants. You can also try xeriscaping which also sport plants which keep low to the ground. A bonus feature of this type of landscaping is that these plants are mostly low maintenance with a low need for water. Not only do you save on space, you also save on water.
Do a promenade.
You do not need to towering palms to make a promenade. From simple native tall shrubs lining up your path or potted plants, this gives your garden an elongated look which in turn makes your outdoor space look more spacious than it.
Use an axis-oriented design.
By using an axis, you can easily do your landscaping projects by sections, thereby giving each section the focus it needs. Establish a central focal point and work from one quarter to another. You can give each quarter a theme of its own and have certain elements pop in each quarter to create a harmony on the overall look of your garden.
Create levels for your gardening plots.
Play with elevation to create an illusion of space. Weave a tapestry of colorful plants without overcrowding and allowing each one to shine. The variety in your garden tapestry along with the different levels gently escalated will result in give you a better, expansive garden view.
