the conifers: how to put in a garden correctly
the Conifers-generic plants, abundance forms and allows them to be used in landscape compositions of various styles (confirmation that you will find on our photo). The size of the plot does not become a problem if nature pine high enough, the ornamental varieties and species used for revegetation, rarely exceed in height 4 m design Alpine it is difficult to imagine without stunted conifers and shrubs (dwarf pine, spruce Lobers Hampi, pine Mini Pug, some kinds of Tuy, coniferous shrubs).
the design of the site may give a color boundary function conifer that will oppose the merger of natural shades. Thus HVojniki help complicate the color combination of the garden, to make it richer and deeper. Often undersized varieties TUI with dark hvoinkami used as a border for the Club by inside flowers in a green box, which offsets the bright colors of the flowers. Pictured gravel gardens necessarily there are coniferous, with stone seats can replace bumps or cut into small slices bark.to content↑
Miksborder from conifers can be placed against the backdrop of the wall of the House, fence, hedge or along the track. The composition must be different (height, colour, shape) decorative coniferous trees and bushes. You should observe the following rules:
- the highest types of conifers are placed on the edge of the composition, in the background. As we get closer to the foot of the miksbordera, the height of the landings is reduced
- compliance with geometric precision landings, from highest to lowest, is rather a disadvantage than advantage. Tops in different ranks must not form a smooth line, alternating medium-and low-growing varieties will add natural natural compositions
- adherence to natural harmony-for big, tall plants plot width must be greater than low landings
- to make the composition more interesting add rhythm to it, you can use the repetition of 3-5 items
for zoning plot designers often use pine trees and shrubs. Produces not just a beautiful fence (in the photo, they look solid wall), but almost walkable, i.e. not just those qualities that are required for perimeter fencing fence . For the conifers planted in staggered rows, having 2-3 series. Of course, to achieve full effect, will require considerable time, but the result will surpass expectations.
for zoning plot (garden) often use the average height (height of 1-2 m) varieties that will not close the overall vision. In addition, Evergreen hedge will make the perfect backdrop for colorful blooming perennials, this is particularly widespread in modern gardens or landscape style.
the Council! to create hedges make good use of various kinds of TUI-thanks to a dense Crone, they will be enough to land in a row, saving space.
Composition of the circular review
design such composition provides that a group of plants will be equally spectacular look anywhere review. Such compositions are most often placed on lawns, flowerbeds and round apertures paving, adhering to rules:
- in the center of the composition are planted the tallest conifer
- around the main element keeping the same distance, planted conifers less height, the height of the second row should not exceed half of, but not be less than one third of the pitch hvojnika
- for the third and fourth series of decorative shrubs and conifers are picked with a proportional decrease in height-so to each series emphasized the beauty of previous, not hiding them
garden design with coniferous plants : how to pick neighbors
designing the garden design you should pay attention to the compatibility of the plant. FIR and spruce trees should not be planted near the pines and Cedars, conifers growth badly affected nearby Birch and cherry-more actively absorb nutrients from the soil, the necessary pine. Blossoming roses very effectively look against trees and TUI, but this neighborhood can be detrimental it is to sensitive roses-Evergreen much acidifying the soil that might be detrimental to their neighbors. Larch-known egocentric, she does not make a presence on a plot of other conifers. But for Tuy undesirable neighbors are eating.
the conifers are well combined with cereals, flowers (especially lilies) and deciduous plants. Coniferous shrubs will look water bodies have beautifully where the company they constitute deciduous weeping plants. Intense Greens Tuy with grey shade needles with small patchy inclusions is the perfect photon for junipers .
To the composition from coniferous plants looked impressive and harmoniously, its design should include the following factors:
- best backdrop for conifers will regular manicured
- to the composition of their conifers (like trees and shrubs) looked harmoniously and holistically, the place for the best review (the location of the Pergola or viewpoint) should be located at a distance of not less than 2 compositions length
- the most spectacular in landscape design is considered to be the location of coniferous species oriented to the West or East
- geometrical form in landscape design is good to use the principle of contrast, for example, arrange high pyramidal conifers near one of the undersized globular types of Tuy. This arrangement of trees of different heights can help you achieve and some of the Visual effects-on the background of undersized Mountain Pines, a few even sredneroslyh TUI will look very high
