  • The size of the garden depends on the size of the property. Your landscape has to be large enough to support all its plants and provide conditions for them to develop properly. Of course, the size of your garden also depends on your preferences. Besides, your garden has to be manageable. If you will be taking care of your landscape yourself, you have to consider how much effort you are willing to dedicate to your garden. Some derive pleasure from working on their landscape, while others prefer a garden that requires little maintenance. The size of your garden will depend on the type of gardener you are.
  • Select the right colors. It is recommended that you have as many colors in your landscape as possible. Different colors are responsible for awaking different emotions in people. When you have a large variety of colors in your landscape, you can create a picture that will evoke a wide spectrum of feelings in people. Whether you are seeking enjoyment, peace or stimulation, you will be able to find them in your garden.
  • Once you have chosen the colors, you will also have to choose the shapes. First, you will have to decide on the shape of the garden, and then you will have to think of the shapes of the individual plants. The shape of the garden should allow the observer of the garden to experience its depth and flow. Plants of various shapes will banish boredom from your landscape.
