The fact that the front garden of the detached house looks dreary and uninviting is not only due to the barren season. The flat shrubs planted on both sides of the front door are not suitable for the long-drawn beds. The garden owners want a dense planting with individual eye-catchers, which give the house a suitable frame.
Seat in the blooming front garden
After the existing trees have been removed, there is room for new plants in the two beds in front of the House. The aim is to bring the facade of the house to its best advantage and still create contrasts. Visually, the single-family house is clearly structured. Therefore, the discounts before may like to look a little wild and lush. This is achieved by planting the beds very densely with smaller and larger perennials. A height staggering from the front to the back is useful, so all plants are clearly visible and a harmonious overall picture results.
But not only the beds, also the whole building can be included in the planting plan. Especially the small windows to the left and right of the door leave enough space on the house wall to green it with climbing plants. The two climbing hydrangeas next to the entrance are a striking eye-catcher. The new plant ‘Semiola’, blooming from May to June, retains its decorative green foliage even in Winter. Two spring flowers were also planted in the beds. The rhododendrons ‘Koichiro Wada ‘(white) and’ Tatjana’ (pink) light a real flower fireworks from May to June.
The September silver candle attracts all eyes with its high white flower candles from September to October. Another Highlight of the front garden is the filled meadow Meadow. The upright growing perennial is reminiscent of baby’s breath and presents Violet, filled flowers from July to September. To bring some peace in the discounts, one plants between these conspicuous perennials smaller representatives of the same plant group.
Shadow-loving funk trees such as’ August Moon ‘or’Clifford’s Forest Fire’ are easy to care for and show delicate purple flower clusters from June to August. Glossy shield ferns and several forest marbles of the variety ‘Marginata’ loosen up the densely growing perennials by their filigree lightness. Isolated autumn saxifrage provide a successful underplanting. The Japanese plant produces small, star-shaped flowers from September to October.
Woody garden with shaped cut
In this design, larger trees dominate the front garden of the single-family house. Overall, the area looks even more densely planted than in the first variant. The three differently high columnar yews at the right edge of the bed and the heart-shaped spindle shrub to the left of the front door take the façade somewhat from its long-drawn shape and make the garden look more spatial. In front of the trees, half-high and low perennials such as autumn anemones and Lenz, roses were planted in order to make the Transition from the front to the rear fluently. Thanks to the different shapes, the front garden looks orderly, but by no means monotonous.
The left border of the garden forms a dwarf-scented lilac. The highly fragrant shrub, which blooms from May to June, was already present in the garden and was integrated into the new planting plan. Behind it, the attractive spindle shrub stands out on the wall of the House. As a third eye-catcher, the three Yew columns attract the attention of the viewer. The different sizes loosen up the Woody group.
Right next to the entrance door, a spherical Gold barberry of the ‘Aurea’ variety welcomes visitors in the pot. Further specimens can be found in the beds. In autumn, the foliage of the barberry glows in strong yellow, red and orange tones. To compensate for the difference in height between woody plants and perennials, some white flowering autumn anemones were planted between August and October. A nice splash of colour in the beds is the wood poppy, which enchants from June to September with a bright yellow pile. A few months earlier, from February to April, ringing Lenz roses of the spring, the flower beds in a. Between the flowering perennials, bird’s foot sedge and hair cornice cover the bottom of the borders. Together with the wax Bell, which blooms from September to October, forest Stork’s beak, which opens its white flowers from June to July, ensures dense vegetation.
