Gisella Aleshire. Garden Design. April 13th , 2018.
Do not forget lighting to extend the use of your yard well into the night.
It is with plants, probably more than any other element of gardens, that the infinite variation and fickleness of nature is most evident, and so perhaps, they are the trickiest to prescribe rules for. And yet, successful planting is the crowning touch of a garden. Three rules have always served me well.
Certain rules help us refine design. One is the Golden Ratio which is a ratio of proportion that's been observed in everything from the Great Pyramids at Giza to the Greek Parthenon and has been used throughout history as a guide to a pleasing sense of balance and order.
Yes, this one's a law, not just a rule! It addresses the root meaning of garden, which is enclosure. This, to me, is absolutely critical in creating a sense of refuge and of feeling oneself within nature's embrace.
