Early spring to early summer is the best time to plant your gardens. Daffodils and tulips are popular flowers that are perfect for spring. Tulips bulbs come in a large variety of colors and kinds, which makes it easy to fit them into any flower garden design you have planned for your yard or home. These landscape ideas will give you so many different color combinations such as yellow, pink, purple, and more!
You will find ideas for your porch, patio, deck, backyard, front yard, and much more to choose from. Whether you are looking for design ideas for small spaces or large spaces, there are tons of ideas for inspiration regardless of the layout you choose.
If you’ve never had a garden before, it can be challenging to know where to start or how to make your own! Read on for some great beginner’s tips for creating your own.
Planning Your Flower Garden Ideas
Before you buy your flowers, you will need to know several things. First and foremost, you will need to know your zone, which you can find using this USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map. This map will tell you which plants will grow in your area. It will help you determine which annuals and perennials to pick out because they will vary depending on the zone. After you have determined your zone, search for your zone’s plant list and pick your flowers, plants, and shrubs based on what grows well in your area.
When considering your garden design, you will need to keep in mind several factors based on the type of flowers that you choose. If they are all going in the same area, then they should have the same sun requirements. Shade is considered 3 or fewer hours of light, partial sun is 3-6 hours and full sun is 6 or more hours. These factors will determine what type of garden layout or design you choose.
You will need to consider the soil type also. You can get a soil testing kit to find out which plants work best in your type of soil. Another thing you will need to think about is how much time and money you want to put into your garden. Factor in a budget for the design and the cost of caring for your plants. You will need to maintain your plants according to their label (I also highly recommend plant food). Container gardens are a great way to try out gardening without investing too much time or money.
Don’t forget to check your labels for sizes to determine the appropriate distance to space your plants apart from each other and anything else surrounding it.
The best garden designs utilize different shapes, layers, textures, and color scheme ideas to give depth and add interest. They should complement each other and balance out the entire garden.
