Sun and Water
No two plants are exactly alike, and they won’t all have the same needs for sun and water. Keep this in mind when choosing a location for your flower garden and for your different plants. If a particular flower does well with lots of water but not a lot of sunlight, put it in an area where it will get lots of water and some shade.
When They’re All Grown Up
When choosing plants for your garden, it is important to know how large the plants are projected to be when full grown. You’ll want to make sure you’re placing things far enough apart that they won’t be crowded but close enough that there won’t be a bunch of strange gaps. The correct spacing will allow your flowers to grow up and thrive and become more beautiful than you could imagine!
Colors, Textures, and Shapes
As tempting as it may be to stroll through the plant nursery and choose whatever you think looks attractive, you need to have some sort of design in mind. Timing is a factor as well, because not all flowers will bloom at the same time. Choose a wide assortment of colors, textures, shapes, and sizes to create the most visually appealing flower garden possible. Make sure that your flowers will bloom throughout the season so that your garden stays looking nice all summer long!
Add a Focal Point
As nice as all of those pretty plants and flowers are, your flower garden will still need a focal point so that it doesn’t end up feeling chaotic. You could go in several different directions for your focal point. You can choose a water feature, such as a pond and waterfall or a fountain, an ornamental tree, or even just a simple garden bench. There are many different options when it comes to creating your garden’s focal point.
