of the world. Sitting in the midst of fragrant flowers while reading a
book or strolling along paths lined with flowers in cheerful colors
can help you to wind down after a busy, stressful day. With some
planning and work, a lovely flower garden can be yours to enjoy.
Planning Flower Garden Designs
Creating beautiful flower garden designs takes much planning and
consideration. You will need to consider the types of flowers and
combinations of colors you desire for the garden. You will also need
to think about the placement of borders and shrubs as well as seating
and ornaments. It is a good idea to choose an overall style for the
garden and stick with it. When you begin your flower garden designs
project, you should make a scale drawing of the design to help
visualize your concepts.
Shapes in Flower Garden Designs
Decide upon the shape and pattern for your flower garden designs.

rectangular lawn. Flower gardens planted on a diagonal to the house
can make a lawn appear larger than it actually is.

Informal cottage gardens have an old-fashioned, rustic look about
them. These flower garden designs incorporate the use of flowers,
plants and vegetables.

Shade gardens are good flower garden designs for spaces with many
trees blocking the sunlight. There are many flowers that do well in
shady areas, including impatiens, begonia, azalea, hosta and viola.
The lack of leaves on the trees in spring allows spring bulbs to grow,
filling the space with color.
Wildflower Flower Garden Designs
Wildflower gardens are flower garden designs that feature plants
indigenous to the area where the garden is located. These gardens tend
to require less pampering than some of the other types listed here,
usually not requiring much weeding or amendments to the soil.
Butterfly Flower Garden Designs
Butterfly gardens are delightful flower garden designs, planted with
flowers known to attract butterflies. Plants such as marigold, lilac,
coreopsis, lavender, black-eyed susan and goldenrod are all good
choices for butterfly gardens.
Hummingbird Flower Garden Designs

spotting these small birds. Hummingbirds like richly colored flowers
with sweet nectar and a tubular shape. Red and fuschia flowers in
particular tend to attract hummingbirds. Some hummingbird garden
favorites are morning glory, petunias, azalea, rose of sharon,
