How to design a garden

by webdev

September 15, 2011

Many people may see fall as the end of flower season, but it is actually only the beginning. Because many spring flowers need to be planted in the fall in order to get things underground before the first frost. Depending on your region, September is the ideal time to start thinking about what you want your garden to look like next summer.

TLC reports that you should think about form and function. If no one uses the garden because it is difficult to get to or uncomfortable to be in, the flowers will not be enjoyed, no matter how gorgeous they are.

Places for entertaining like decks, patios or barbecue pits are ideal for a garden, since they are high-traffic in the summer. Choose flowers that appeal to you and will thrive in your climate, whether cold, rainy or hot.

You should also consider the lay of your land. Do you have a fence that you would like to cover with tall plants or shrubs? Or would you like to section off parts of the yard with hedges or clusters of flowers? Consider your goals before planting anything, the news source suggests.

While you wait for your spring flowers to bloom, bring some color indoors with autumn flowers like chrysanthemums or sunflowers. You can brighten up your home with a floral arrangement any time of the year.
