The color corner
Fill in a corner in your garden with perennials and create the perfect color spot. It is best to plant flowers that grow in height near the fence. Let them then grade into medium and small ones – the closer they come to the middle of the garden, the smaller.
Colors don’t really matter – the more, the merrier. Mixing the type of the flowers depends only on the type of soil they need and most of them need one and the same, so – no worries there either.
You need not have green thumb superpower – love, some sweat and just a little reading on-line will do the trick.

Any type of flower bed will do. Here we offer you a mix of still life and, well – life. Pebbles look stylish and tidy, and neat.
When you add flower pots to the pebbles, you create a contrast that is pleasant to the eye and calming to the mind. Flower pots can be aligned in a straight line or in a zigzag – it is up to you. Surrounding your house with flowers will make it stand out.
So, do your magic and change the looks of your house, of your garden and your life!

Walk through lavender

Plant lavender along both sides of the pathway – it’s not a plant that needs much skill and attention and the fragrance it spreads around is 100% worth it.

The concrete jungle we live can be an inspiration too. Especially if you are into cubic shapes. Arrange some concrete blocks, fill them with soil and grow your plants there.

Create your happy place, encircle it with your favorite flowers, bushes and trees, and return there as often as you need to.
The exquisite tropics
Create the unique tropic atmosphere by planting some tropical plants. This type of garden may require reading a bit – what grows best in your area, how much water the plants need, etc. At some point you’ll start gardening intuitively.
