Landscaping and Gardening

The landscape architecture was often compared to painting a picture. Your professor of artwork you undoubtedly said that a good image should have a point of interest-in-chief, and the rest of the points just going to do the best idea, or form an arrangement end for him . As a landscape architecture there must be a gardener 's spirit of an image of what he wants everything to be when it completes its work.

In this study we can establish a small theory of landscape architecture.

Let the lawn. A good amount of open space of grass is always beautiful. It is relaxing. It adds a sense of space even for small reasons. Thus we could generalize and say that it is well to keep open areas of lawn. If one covers his lawn space of many trees, with little flower beds here and there, the overall effect is variable and nit-picking. It is like a person dressed ostentatiously. It 's ground lost any individuality and treated. A single tree or a small group is not a bad arrangement on the lawn. Do not center the tree or trees. Let them drop a bit in the background. Make a pleasant side of them. In choosing trees one must keep in mind a number of things. You should not choose a tree control, the tree should be a good shape, with something interesting about its bark, leaves, flowers or fruit. While the poplar is a fast grower, it sheds its leaves early and thus is left to rest, and laid bare before the fall is old. Take care of you, there are places where a row or double row of Lombardy poplars is very effective. But I think you will agree with me that a single poplar is not. The catalpa is quite beautiful in itself. Its leaves are large, attractive flowers, seed pods which to hang yourself to the tree away in the winter, add a little squeness image. Berries light ash, the brilliant foliage of maple sugar, flowers of the tulip tree, the bark of white birch and beech leaves copper all these are points of beauty consider.

The place makes a difference in choosing a tree. Suppose that the lower part of the reason is a little low and moist, then stain is ideal for a willow. Don 'trees by t seem all that clumsy. A poplar long-regard is not with a small tree rather rounded tulip nice. A juniper, if an orderly and prim, seems almost an idiot chestnut spread. We must maintain the proportion and convenience in mind.

I 'd never advise not planting a group of green plants near a house, and in court. The effect is very bleak indeed. Room and overcapped surrounded by trees and such are not only to live in dark, but really unhealthful. The requirement to head inside a house is sunlight and plenty of it.

While trees are chosen because of some positive points and shrubs should be. In a block I should like to extend a party that bloomed early, some that bloomed late, some for the beauty of their fall foliage, some for the color of their bark and others for the fruit. Some spireas and the forsythia bloom early. The red bark of the dogwood makes a little color all winter, and red berries of berbéris cling to the shrub well in winter.

It is good to use some shrubs for hedges. A fence is a little nicer usually a barrier. The Californian privet is excellent for this purpose. The Osage orange, berbéris Japan, buckthorn, quince Japan, and Van Houtte 's spirea are other shrubs that make good hedges.

I forgot to say in the choice of tree and shrub it is usually better to choose those of a city living in it. The rare plants and foreign harmonize less well, and often misunderstood but with their new arrangement.

The landscape architecture can follow along the lines very formal or along the lines without ceremony. The first would have the right paths, straight rows in the stiff beds, as the name suggests, quite formal. The other method is, of course, the exact vis-à-vis. There are points in each of danger.

The formal arrangement is likely to look too stiff; without ceremony, too fussy, too wavy. Insofar paths disappear, keep this in mind, a way should always lead somewhere. It is his business to lead one to a place defined. Now, law, even the roads are not unpleasant if the effect is to be a formal garden. The danger in the curved path is a sharp curve, a whirligig effect. It is far better that you colliez the right path unless you can make a really beautiful curve. Nobody can t'indiquer how to do this.

The garden paths can be gravel, dirt or grass. You see grass paths in some very beautiful gardens. I doubt, however, they also serve you well in small gardens. Your garden areas are so limited that they should be re-spaded each season, and the grass paths are a great annoyance in this work. Of course, a gravel road makes a late appearance, but you can not have gravel at your command. It is possible that any of you dig out the path two feet. Then put in six inches of stone or slag. Above this package in the dirt, rounding slightly toward the center of the road. It should never be depressions in the central part of paths, since they are convenient places for the water to be held. The layer below the stone is a pipe normal.

A building needs often using vines or flowers or every two to tie the reasons to form a harmonious whole. The vines are well suited to this work. It is better to plant a perennial vine, and so has left to be part of your permanent arrangement landscape. All the vine of Virginia, the wistaria, honeysuckle, rose s'élevante, clematis and trumpet vine are the most satisfactory.

Close your eyes and describe a house color normal, mature gray shingles superficial by the agents. Now add to this old house a purple wistaria. Can you see the beauty of it? I remember soon rather laid a corner of my childhood home, where the dining room and kitchen met. S'élever just over there, and fall over a trellis was a trumpet vine. She made a beautiful angle clumsy, a bit laid working carpenter.

Naturally, the morning-glory is an annual vine, as the moon-vine and wild cucumber. Now, they have their special function. To often, it is necessary to cover an ugly thing for just a moment, until things better and better times ahead. The directory is "cracking " for the job.

Along an old barrier of hops vine is a thing of beauty. You could try to match the wood 'working landscape. For one often sees festonné a broken tree to another vine of ampelopsis.

The flowers may well go along the side of the building, or frame a walk. Generally, however, hold the front lawn space open and uninterrupted by beds. What more beautiful in the first instance a bed of daffodils around the house? The hyacinths and tulips, too, form a flame of glory. They are little or no annoyance, and start the spring aright. It may be a few bulbs an exception to the rule of uninterrupted front lawn. Snowdrops and crocuses planted on the lawn are beautiful. They do not affect the overall effect, but just mingle with everything. A gardener said bulb expert to take a basketful of light bulbs in the fall, walk about your reasons, and just drop off bulbs here and there. Where drop the bulbs, plant. Small bulbs such as those we plant in lawns should be in groups of four to six. The daffodils can be planted, too. You all remember the grape hyacinths that grow all by Katharine 'court side s.

The place for a flower garden is generally on the side or rear of the house. Est-ce que garden back yard a nice idea, is not it? Who wants to leave a beautiful courtyard semblante turn the corner of a house and find a lot of discharge? Not I. The flower garden may be formally presented in small beds ordained, or it may be more a kind of careless and hit-or-miss. Both have their positive points. The broad masses of the flower are attractive.

You should keep in mind some notion of mixing color. The nature seems not to consider this at all, and always gets wonderful effects. Because of the enormous amount of her perfect background of green, and the limitlessness of its space, while we are best confined to relatively small areas. Thus we should try not blind people 's eyes of disagreements with colors that do not mix well at close range. To break up the ends of colors you can always use the masses of white flowers, or something like mignonette, which is in force green.

In conclusion, let us summarize our lesson landscape. The reasons are an arrangement for the house or buildings. The open spaces and free lawn, a tree or an appropriate group well placed, flowers n'encombrent not up the court, groups grove they are points to remember. The paths should lead somewhere, and are directly or curved. If one starts with a formal garden, one should not mix the ceremony without him before the work is carried out.
