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.

Divide the garden into outdoor rooms that echo and expand upon the home's interior, giving both inside and out more purpose and making everything feel larger. If you plan to entertain groups, keep the furniture and plantings along the perimeter of the garden to allow for mingling in the center of the space.

Whether dealing with a long narrow space behind a vintage home, a cramped backyard that lacks privacy, or a shabby garden at the rear of a brownstone the possibilities are endless. So do not write off your 40 foot by 20 foot outdoor area just yet, with the right design, it could be an incredible garden.
Gisella Aleshire Garden Design, 2018-04-21 03:46:38. When selecting plants for a relatively small space, do not go color crazy, stick with a more monochromatic scheme of cooler colors (such as blues, violets, yellows and silvery greens) otherwise you may end up with a garden that feels close and confined.
Geraldina Krantz Garden Design, 2018-04-21 03:46:33. Le Corbusier hits on the two aspects, a bit paradoxical, perhaps, that make the regulating line so valuable. First is the idea of underlying order, are that the garden, for all its naturalness, or wildness, is founded on strong principles, what's sometimes known in garden circles as good bones.
Rosemonde Winter Garden Design, 2018-04-21 15:09:44. Dividing a garden, even when small, often has the paradoxical effect of making it seem larger. In small gardens where space is too limited for major focal points, compose a series of mini views within the garden itself, offering interest in every direction while using plants to provide a framework.

The law of significant enclosure says that we feel enclosed when the vertical edge of a space is at least one‐third the length of the horizontal space we are inhabiting. Probably derived from behavioral psychology studies, this rule came to me from a professor in graduate school, and it was one of the best things I learned.
Della Bauer Garden Design, 2018-04-29 01:22:07. A regulating line, wrote the great architect, and theoretician. Le Corbusier, is an assurance against capriciousness. It confers on the work the quality of rhythm. The choice of a regulating line fixes the fundamental geometry of the work.

Imparted by Ralph Snodsmith, my first official gardening teacher at the New York Botanical Garden and talk radio host (a character whose working uniform was always a forest green three-piece suit), there is no greater planting wisdom. No matter how brilliant a plan one conceives, if the plants are not well planted at the right height, in a sufficiently sized, and properly amended pit, the results will likely be poor. Some rules just can not be broken.
