One of the strongest trends when it comes to decoration, references to nature emerge not only in an organic design, in prints with floral motifs and a color chart in natural tones, but also in landscaping projects that range from leisure areas to balconies and internal gardens.
When it comes to creating green spaces, whether indoors or outdoors, landscapers are the most suitable professional but for you to work in tune, it is interesting to pay attention to some items, which we will show you below.
1 – Get To Know The Architectural Characteristics Of The Space In-Depth
You should analyze together with the landscapers the best place to insert the garden, analyzing factors such as the incidence of sunlight, humidity, expected circulation area, among other more subjective factors, such as the style that the garden should have: French, with inspiration Tuscan, tropical, Japanese … The definition of the type of garden must dialogue with the architectural style of the house or building.
2 – Think About The Functionality Of The Garden
Not only does a garden have a beautiful view. It is interesting that it also plays a role. So, analyze the routine of the residents and see with them what would be the best function for them. Space for children’s play or something more Zen, such as an area for yoga and meditation practice, are some of the options in the current décor.
3 – Define Plans
With the previously mentioned characteristics defined, it is time to choose the plants that will be part of the project. The landscapers will present you with the most suitable options in terms of climate and space, but it is interesting that your knowledge comes into play so that you can define together the best types of vegetation.
4 – Know Where To Put Them
Will the chosen plants be planted directly in the garden, or will they need supplements, such as pots and cachepots? Once again, you and the landscapers should think together about complements for plants that will not be directly planted outside. What is the best material to receive these plants? Ceramics, pallets, wood … The options are many. Another important tip is to define the size of these vases and cachets well so that they do not interfere with the architectural project or disturb the circulation.
5 – Define The Best Coatings For The Space
As in an outdoor area, the floor is subject to weather conditions such as sun, wind, and rain; requirements such as strength and durability must be taken into account. Wood, stones, and cement are some of the materials that can be used in the area.
6 – Think About Lighting
A lighting project that enhances the garden layout is also essential to make the space cozy and more visually comfortable at night. Think of the points that can be illuminated, the plants to be highlighted, and more general lighting for space.
7 – Choose The Appropriate Outdoor Furniture
Usually made of natural materials, the furniture in the outdoor area can also dare in colors and dimensions. Larger modular chairs and sofas are always welcome. Shelves like ours receive plants and guarantee the “wow” factor of the project.
