Flowers in the garden


To house the flowers in the garden you can choose between:
- flowering arboreal plants
- shrubby or bushy flowering plants
- flowering climbing plants
- flowering evergreen plants
- herbaceous flowering plants
- Mediterranean flowering plants
- flowery succulents
- flowering aquatic plants (if a body of water is present)
To obtain an optimal yield, it is necessary to consider some assumptions, namely:
- extension of the garden
- exposure
- weather conditions and sunshine
- types of land
- type of irrigation
- coexistence between plants
- possible limiting and harmful factors
The choice of plants is also conditioned by the different type of garden, namely:
* in classical gardens it is preferable to house ornamental plants (many varieties)
* in rock gardens it is necessary to use varieties adaptable to the shade and the presence of stones and rocks (such as campanula)
* in the rustic garden we must favor rustic and native species (mimosa type)
* in the Mediterranean garden it is advisable to host plants suitable for warm climates (like lavender)
* in the Zen garden you can choose from a few compatible specimens (like azalea)
