Drawing the Layout of a Garden for High End Real-Estate


Real-estate properties are now trending. You can buy an already built house and pay mortgages for the duration agreed. Designers are busy coming up with marketable ideas for garden layouts to attract as many clients as possible. One thing for sure is that a designer is equal to the contractor who does the fixing; probably more important. A designed garden layout gives the contractor the go-ahead and a starting point of what should be done. Without it, you can expect some shoddy work. Fortunately, you don’t have to pay a fortune to the landscape architect while you can just get on with drawing yourself. You just need to bring some variations on the table. What you design will surprise you.


  1. Balance your plants

It is important that you know what type of fruit plants or veggies you are to put on your garden right at the design stage. Remember that you will plant what you will have on the drawing and not what you will think. If you have a contractor, he will be referring to what you have on the drawing to create your garden. To look healthy, balancing is a tip to not leave out. You can have a portion for fruits and vegetables, another for exotic flowers, a different part for perennials and another for native plants. If you can draw a design that includes all these and mix them as necessary, you are there. Remember to leave some space for adults relaxing and children playing.


  1. Stand out unique

What amazes people is what they have never seen before. To attract as many tenants as possible to your new properties, you will have to stand out unique. The garden will be a vital factor here. Don’t just go for what you see across the streets. It is recommended that you travel a lot to capture ideas of classic gardens.


  1. Consult horticulturist/gardeners

Where you find trouble drawing the perfect garden layout, you need not stress your brains. Help is in plenty out there waiting for you to make a move. Many make the mistake of undermining themselves and believing that they can’t do it. If you set your brain that you will fail, you will do plenty of failure. You can simply talk to your local gardeners and seek what they do. Advanced help can also be sort from horticulturist. Combining your own ideas and the added help will ultimately guarantee a perfect garden layout.

  1. Think long-time

Some gardeners are tempted to go for too many biennials just because they look great. How they forget that after 2 years the plants will be dead, I don’t know. Don’t see just now, project into the future. You don’t want to design a garden and then repeat the same after a year. Do it once, and do it right with a future based mind.

When To Plant Your Flowers?


Gardening is not easy but it certainly comes with advantages, clear advantages. Today we are going to dig deeper into a common subject of great interest  : when to plant your flowers and when we plant ours. Planting flower seeds in the spring has some distinct advantages over growing them at any other time of the year.While there are other times of the year for planting flower seeds by Gardeners, spring is the ideal time in for seeds to grow. When planting annual flower seeds in the spring, the gardener doesn’t have to wait for the dormant period to be over, and will not be looking at a short life for the plants. Flower seeds grown in the spring will have the advantages of the rain and the spring warmth in which to sprout. Once the ground is thawed and there is not likely to be more frost, it is time to ready flower seed for the garden. In dry areas, the ground will need to be watered regularly in order to create the ideal environment for new flower seeds. In many dry regions, the soil may also call for fertilizer, peat moss, or mulch as well.


Annual flower seeds can be planted as soon as the weather is mild. Hardy annuals, those with a higher tolerance to cold, can be started at the very beginning of the growing season, even if there is the possibility of another frost. For those who wish to have their plants flowering as soon as possible, starting annual flower seeds indoors in the late winter or cold part of the spring, and then transplanting them outdoors, is one way to get early blooms. This makes for an early flower garden using cheap seed instead of using expensive plants or seedlings from a nursery. But annuals are not the only flower seed variety that responds well to spring planting.

As we move on towards the middle of spring, where the weather is lovelier and the frost is long gone, regular annual seeds that require warm temperature can be planted. For hardy annuals you can plant them in the early spring as they have a strong resistance towards cold spring frost. While you plant your hardy annuals, you can simultaneously plant your regular annual flower indoors and later transplant them outdoor when the weather settles. Once you have the regular and hardy annual flowers in your garden, you can see the result of having the prettiest garden as your flower would bloom continuously throughout the season. Besides annual, a lot of other varieties of flower seeds also can be planted in the season of spring as well.

Perennial flower seeds usually need some cold temperatures before being planted, but can do this naturally in the soil. Perennial flower seeds should be started early in the spring both to give them some cold temperatures in which to germinate, and to ensure that they will be large enough by winter to survive freezing temperatures. If the climate is warm and mild all year, these flower seeds may need to be refrigerated before they can be planted. Perennial flower seeds grow into flowers than can live for three years or more, making them a popular favorite for gardeners. Taking special care of these seeds will eliminate the need to replant them each year.


During the early spring, when the temperatures are still teasingly cold, perennial flowers can be planted naturally in the soil. This is because most of the varieties of perennial flowers need a little bit of cold weather to germinate before they began sprouting. This is also to ensure that they would have matured nicely and can withstand the cold and harsh condition when winter arrives. Not only that, growing perennial early in the spring would also guarantee that you would have a blooming garden with flowers earlier than any type flowers. Although not very suitable to plant in warm climate countries, those who simply insist of having them needs to keep them refrigerated before planting to give them time to germinate.

Even if one is staying in a cold weather country, and had bought the seeds a little bit too late in the spring they still have to conduct the same practice of refrigerating these flowers. The beauty of perennial however is their life span as they can easily last for three years or more. Their life span would be longer if one takes good care of the seeds and nourish them appropriately.Because wildflower seeds are cheap, easy to grow, require little labor and resources, most of the states have taken to planting them to prevent erosion. That’s also the reason why most people plant them at their flower garden.
