Trees and shrubs in the garden landscape design are as much a priority as flowering plants. Their correct location determines the semantic completeness of the composition, as they are often planted on the perimeter to indicate the boundaries of mountaineers, rockeries and other design ideas. Often compositions of trees and shrubs themselves are accents on the site, and then flowers and other plants are planted around them.
You will learn how to place trees in a garden to plant a coniferous garden on a country estate and create other compositions by the author on this page.
If you already have trees and shrubs in your garden, you should treat them with care and understand that this is the wealth of the garden. Try to emphasise their beauty and make them garden accents.
If the tree or shrub dries up or significantly interferes with the ease of movement on the site, or interferes with important garden plans, you might think about uprooting them out. And if there are no trees in your garden (this is often the case on new, uninhabited plots), then of course you should plant them! Only then will you be able to create an image of your garden, and it is important to correctly decide on the species of trees and shrubs and where to plant them. Remember, it is the trees and shrubs that make a garden a garden. They make a garden visible, even from a distance, its shape and structure, emphasize the interesting layout, unite the garden into a single system. In addition, the trees and shrubs in the garden represent the long-term basis of the garden, to which you can add some “scenery”, plant or architectural, and change them as a constructor. If you have created a good base with trees and shrubs, you have created at least half the success. To have a successful garden base, you need to select and place trees and shrubs in the garden correctly. And the concept of “right choice” does not just mean the right appearance, physical condition of these plants, namely, the right height, with the right crown shape, with the right leaf colour.
