The idea of a harmonious garden: flower beds and terraces round shape

In psychology the most harmonious shape is the circle. It is associated with infinity and yet with perfection and literally smooths out all the sharp corners. Looking for a way to harmonize your space? You will help terraces and flower beds rounded and, of course, green Pets.

Have you ever wondered why business negotiations are usually conducted at the round table? It's not by accident! With this arrangement, all participants feel like equal partners, which in turn affects their mood and willingness to cooperate. These principles can be applied in our everyday life, because the laws of psychology allow to work equally in all fields. For example, terraces and Lounges round shape simply radiate peace.

Round the terrace from one side echo daylillies and a hedge of yew, on the other semicircle, spreading avens (Geum). The neighborhood is a very appropriate red geyhera and miscanthus Chinese.

And where, if not favorite country, to turn around with the implementation of the project under the conditional name "a Wider circle"? Over the options of circular elements to break the head is not necessary. This can be, for example, flower gardens, Islands of different sizes, formed into balls of evergreens, round terrace with an oval roaster. In short, an opportunity to "play" with round shapes in the design of the site there is a big set.

Green balls effectively contrast with the straight lines and angles. The originality of composition give mini flower gardens with Privet Stam form, broken in the middle of the paved area.

Allies can be recorded and the "right" plants, because many of them are "chubby" babies. Especially you should look at hydrangea, decorative bow and Echinops — their inflorescences spherical shape will effectively overlap with the design elements on the site. However, there is one caveat: "balls" need to dilute the tall herbaceous perennials with buds specificname, such as lnjanki, Highlander specificnim or veronicastrum virgin.

On large sites where all the elements appropriate to use only point,their shape can be emphasized, after a landing in one color (variegated plants are fully tightened on, and then the shape of a flower garden will recede into the background). For this purpose suitable groundcover herbaceous perennials, such as cuff, or geranium Geum, which look beautiful for a long time. Because the flowering period of these plants lasts only a few weeks of planting, it is desirable to complement the daffodils and other bulbous (in moderation).

Tulips with pink and purple flowers dance in a circle around Magnolia. Because this ornamental tree is very delicate roots, plant bulbs should be at a respectful distance from the trunk.

Catchy emphasis on a rounded form flower beds and terraces that will make a decorative fence. This can be a low hedge planted around the perimeter of the bamboo (for example, fargesia ‘Simba’) or evergreen ornamental grass.

For contour extraction can be used and building elements, such as a low retaining wall or curb. But do not forget about sense of proportion! In the pursuit of harmony not to turn the garden is a haven of monotony and boredom, the potential use of contrasts, punctuated by the oval items in other forms. Go for it!

Elements round shape was popular in the middle Ages. One such example is the Celtic cross, which is laid out with cobblestones or gravel. He was revolucio cross enclosed in a circle — the symbol of the sun and eternity. The stone, located in the center of the figure symbolized the ancient power, and four stones of the inner circle — the horizon and the four elements. The longitudinal axis is represented the spiritual world, cross — physical. The outer circle represented the transition from one world to another. To make this original item can you.

A circular path of different size, slabs, laid on a gravel fill, surrounded by giant miscanthus (Miscanthus x giganteus, height 3-4 m) and looks like lost in the jungle trail.
