For many avid gardeners, fine gardening is considered to be a form of art. It entails more than just simply deciding to improve the look of your garden by choosing and planting some new and pretty plants. Fine gardening takes a considerable amount of time, imagination and dedication on the part of the gardener to complete.
That is because in fine gardening, the enjoyment is not really in the end product, rather it is in the hours of time an avid gardener would spend working on their fine gardening project and making sure that every single detail of their garden is carefully and meticulously attended to.
While there are a number of different fine gardening designs that are often suggested in gardening magazines and in articles over the Internet, one could see that there are essential elements that comprise a fine gardening project. Here are just some fine gardening essentials that you can take a look into to make your garden looking truly like a masterpiece.
Balancing Your Garden
One of the essentials in fine gardening is to make sure that the design is proportioned and sectioned accordingly. The art of fine gardening has been called as such because it takes into consideration certain principles that are commonly taught in arts school.
When designing your fine gardening project, make sure that the types of flowers, shrubs, trees and decorations are distributed evenly so that no part of the garden would look too bare or too crowded.
Create a Focal Point
If you look at any painting, you would eventually find yourself staring at a certain portion of the canvass longer than the rest. This is considered to be the focal point. Just like a painting, your fine gardening project should also have a focal point that will be the highlight of your entire garden.
If you have a large garden space, a fountain at the center of the garden would be a great focal point idea. For smaller gardens, it could be a beautiful swing with a wooden frame and entwined with creepers located just a little bit off to the side of your garden.
Allergy free gardening
Are you sneezing, coughing or having red eyes while gardening? Then opt for allergy free gardening that has become quite popular in the fine gardening arena. Our gardening landscapes are the main culprits for an increase in the number of allergy sufferers.
Additionally, people who are affected by asthma and who love gardening can opt for allergy free gardening by planting plants that produce fewer amounts of pollen grains or those which emit reduced odors.
Thus if you want to follow fine gardening principles and stay clear of the allergies, do not plant too many male plants which only produce pollens. There are certain trees which release volatile organic compounds and create more pollution. Avoiding these will create an allergy free environment.
