Learn to Design Beds

Since a mountain is an island can be any size, provided it respects two important points should be large enough to be viewed at a distance and allowing intervention by a sufficient variety of materials throughout the growth process and should not be so large that the gardener can not reach the center to care for plants-except if you have one or more trails for maintenance.
The massive floral is suitable for all types of two-dimensional arrays or "ground designs, but throughout history, there has been a tendency to promote some more than others in terms of architectural and aesthetic trends prevailing in each period.Two clear examples of change in the fashions of gardening are the two treatments that were given to the masses in the Renaissance and England century XVIII.
The massif of the Renaissance was a space where grass grew long with the simple aim of using them for medicine or food, and generally was within the walls of the medieval monasteries. In response to growing prosperity and civil orders, wealthy landowners embraced the garden design as a way to show their status and fortune, what were their humble beds of herbs evolved into elaborate floral designs. Like the formal home decorating, garden Renaissance was an exercise in symmetry and geometry, a maze of rectangular solid lines or roads that intersect with those proclaiming the man's ability to impose order on the outside world.
The early Renaissance in gardening can be easily adapted to small scale in the environment today. Both the formal beds that accompany perfectly trimmed hedges and evergreens, such as those that combine various herbs and plants limited by box, containing the control and accuracy characteristic of those early gardens.
In contrast, century English gardens XVIII reflect more naturalistic taste and ideas of the time. Though the beds are carefully cultivated, it was easy Outlined following the meanders of a stream, or nest in the bosom of rocky mounds. Plant groups of the massif is designed to look completely natural. The gardeners of that time enjoyable potentiated some irregularity and fanciful, based on the theory that nature abhors straight lines.
Gardeners of the existing cottages retain that same spirit that characterizes much of the massifs of the eighteenth century. The feeling of free flowing mind, neglected forms and combinations of plants unstructured, reflecting an approach to the more relaxed and happy gardening. Currently both the formal and informal beds are very popular, but no way should be followed so inflexible, or your property should be limited to one style. Only a few elements remain "standard" for solid design.

Ground rules for design of solid

Whatever their style, a solid must be designed to be viewed from different angles. This means that taller plants should be planted in the center, to go down in size until they reach their limits, so that, once grown, no plant to hide the sight of another. This also implies that the solid should be attractive from several points of view. For example, in a spacious want your mountain is attractive when viewed from the kitchen or living room window, or from the terrace, as over the neighbor's window.
Since a solid is designed to attract attention and be admired, it seems logical to align it with something that is pleasing to the eye, like a pond, a distant view or a very special kind of tree.
For the same reason it should not be grown next to any device or feature of the landscape that is not pleasant, since the massive draw attention to the area. However, you can use a solid and fun, to divert attention from something unpleasant visits. For example, an overly solid color in the garden center would distract attention from visitors to a nasty security fence, in the area for dogs in the back of the house or on the playground for children.
The ranges can also be used to disguise unattractive features, such as an isolated source or boxes for tools. When designing a cluster of this type, we recommend using durable plants, since they occur in areas of use and will withstand much foot traffic.
