The Best Part of Gardening- Landscaping

Plants for Borders
 A quick tour into our society garden gave much to mention today. I felt very bad to see that so many beautiful and healthy plants had been plucked and thrown away and instead new plants had been arranged in design. The landscaping looks very attractive but at what cost? many times , time and again I get the same thoughts. they cut trees for construction and again they plant new trees to fulfill the Govt. criteria rules for societies having minimum number of plants in a particular area per square foot!

 Terrace Garden also looks very clean and spick and span, after the rains I just couldn't bear the chaos of plants and shrubs growing in unkempt manner. I love nature but I also love discipline. Bought new plants a shrub of Mogra  and Chameli climber. There is always a form and manner in which plants grow and many times we appreciate plants when they are well presented. As we display jewellery, food and other products , so also garden is presented to be beautiful by landscaping.
Little Snail
 In landscaping plants are arranged in groups or rows to make an impression. Plants of similar colours, types or variety are clubbed together to make a lasting great impression of your garden. Terrace garden are usually not so large and hence landscaping has to be done keeping in mind this space factor.
Beautiful Pink Flowers in Bunches
 These beautiful pink flower bushes growing in indirect sunlight are a great focal point in the garden.
Great Border Plants
 Great border plants can be used to make a border of your landscaped garden. There are many plants that grow in form of thick growths which can be trimmed according to the required shape and size.
Attractive Plant With Pink Border
 This plant has green leaves with pink attractive border. This gives us the thought that God has made so many different plants and different colours in nature, unlimited, just like humans there are no two same plants! Having balanced the garden according to feng shui principles it looks attractive and relaxing with vibrant and decorative plants, one can also use rocks and stones in landscaping with a water feature to make your terrace garden unique.

Landscaping your terrace garden may be on your wish list and many people as soon as they purchase a terrace flat hire a professional landscaper for their garden. I would advise to first consider your climatic conditions, the seasonal changes on your terrace, the leakages and other factors before beginning the landscaping. Then we hear about many people who have to bear losses financial as well as death of plants which leads them to stop this and use their terrace for some other purpose. They just accept that gardening is not for them! Hence first study the climatic conditions, when the sunlight comes on your terrace, how many hours of sunlight do you receive, is it full day or partially filtered light due to tall surroundings, covering mud and making a lawn would not be advisable for many terraces as there are leakage problems often if not in the beginning years then in later years definately.
You can always take advice of friends and neighbors to see what type of plants grow best in your locality. If you love rare and exotic plants do take information on care about the plant before purchasing it. I suggest new gardeners the process to be slow and simple, there is much pleasure in selecting plants for your terrace garden, taking care of them personally and loving them, it gives immense satisfaction and pleasure to see the first blooms! display your plants according to your tastes and styles, your garden will be unique and always there will be the factor of excitement and newness and never will your garden look dull or boring which often is the case when you hire  professionals for your garden.

  2. Hi Anonymous yes discipline is a must for any garden, otherwise nature grows wild, there is beauty in discipline.
    I loved your site selling trees shrubs online, do you only supply trees in bulk, what about single orders or multiple orders of package of different trees or shrubs?
