Owners of the private sector both in the city and far beyond the metropolis need to take care not only of comfort and comfort in the house, but also make a well-kept and beautiful courtyard. For the village dweller his yard is a "visiting card" that demonstrates the taste, style, status, level of industriousness of all dwellers. Rural people are concerned about how the yard, the backyard, the garden, other possessions adjoining the house look from the side.
The modern yard in the village or in the city should not only be clean and neat, but also artfully stylized, consisting of important structural elements that solve certain tasks.
The landscape design of the courtyard of a private house will primarily depend on its size. A large territory makes it possible to realize most of the ideas, in fact, without refusing anything in itself. The only obstacle to creating a "court of your dreams" can be a financial component.
Forged arbors, luxurious pools, artificial ponds, other respectable design options are worth a lot of money. However, the creative approach is able even in this situation to solve some problems.
The design of the private courtyard, no matter how surprising it may sound, largely depends on the climatic features of the region. The weather conditions and the duration of the warm period predetermine the degree and quality of planting the site.
The moisture level, the average summer temperature, the frequency of rains, the peculiarities of the region associated with any natural disasters (for example, an abnormally arid region, frequent precipitation, thunderstorms, storms) affect the plants and the appearance of the yards as a whole. In addition, the length of the construction work depends on how long the weather reigns on the street. If the site plans to erect decorative elements and structures of the economic profile, it is important to take into account how long it will take to realize the ideas and whether the weather will be able to do everything in time.
Architectural features of the house
Arrangement of the courtyard and the house with their own hands is a troublesome business, but fascinating. No matter how extravagant or extraordinary the idea of design, it is important to take into account the architectural features of the house, the stylistic characteristics of the facade, correlating all the data with the actual size of the site.
For a small courtyard it is better to think over the landscape decor, emphasizing the architectural features of the house. If the site is quite large, the whole territory can be divided into zones, each of which is to be registered individually.
Do not abuse the decor. Too many details, a heap of designs, variegated and ridiculous elements will make the design of a small courtyard tasteless, vulgar, ridiculous.
On the needs of the inhabitants of the house
Any beautiful design of the courtyard of a private house should still be formed taking into account the needs of all those who live in the house. The number of household members, the activities of each of them, and the specific requirements for the adjacent territory play a role.
It is necessary to find out the following points:
- Will the site or any part of it be used as a garden?
- In what form the landscaping of the patio will be presented, is a large flowerbed planned?
- What economic facilities will be on the site;
- Is it planned to build a sauna with a swimming pool, a gazebo, is it necessary to have a location under the brazier, other similar facilities.
Given all the nuances, even the smallest territory needs to be delineated, highlighting several functional areas. Usually it is a terrace and a gazebo, a summer kitchen with a place for eating under the open sky, a playground, various decorative elements.
Garden paths are a favorite attribute of all designers. It is a real pleasure to turn a functional element into an object of a stylish original decor.
The main mission of the "road surface" on the site is the organization of the security of movement through the territory of nearby houses, as well as the improvement of the site as a whole. The most running materials, of which make spectacular paths and sidewalks:
- Flat stones;
- Concrete plates;
- Gravel or pebbles, which fill the pre-formed pavement.
Individual landscape design requires strict geometry for sidewalks and garden paths. This does not mean that only ideal lines or strict proportions are allowed on the site. The harmony of all the details is important, because the paths often play the role of such conn
Few people think, but it is the greenery on the site and forms all the mood, imparts its own unique color and cosiness to the home space. Each hostess is free to choose plants for the yard. You can create flower beds in a classical form or experiment with volume, colors, style.
However, there are a number of special recommendations that should not be neglected. It has already been stipulated that the climate in many respects affects the beauty of flower beds and green "islets", so the vagaries of nature should be taken into account.
Everyone, inspired by the ideas to make their yard the most beautiful, should remember that absolutely all the flowers on the site should not bloom at once. Otherwise 1-2 months the yard will smell sweet and delight the eyes with bright colors, and all the remaining time (and this is a fairly long period) will either prepare for flowering or slowly fade.
It is better if the flowering of several varieties of plants will be smoothly replaced by the charm and fragrance of other domestic flowers, and so a few cycles.
Fountains, cascades and not only
Landscape design only then is considered incredibly effective and stylish, if the site has elements of decor with water. And we are not talking about huge pools or large artificial ponds where fish splash.
Japanese masters believe that water as a symbol of one of the most powerful elements has a special mental power, is able to energetically strengthen the place where it is located at the moment.
If you can not make a small pond or a fountain with water, you can always give preference to tiny analogs. Instead of attracting specialists, carrying out all necessary communications, adjusting the environment to a water cascade or a swimming pool, you can buy a ready-made mini-fountain.
So that it does not look lonely or inappropriate against the background of other elements of landscape design, a new attribute is decorated at its discretion, for example, flowerpots are placed, alpine slides are formed from large cobblestones, and the space is decorated with cute figurines for the garden. A funny frog will definitely bring life to life.
The yard of a private house is a place where you rest your soul and body. It is important that every detail should be relaxed and restful. Comfort and comfort largely depend on the personal preferences of the residents of the house. That is why, when building a site near your monastery, it is important to do everything with a soul and a positive attitude.
