A flower bed is a part of a garden having only decorative flowers. It could also be a separate entity situated at an easily noticeable place in your home. It could contain different variety of hues of the flowers ranging from blues to maroons to even bright yellows, whatever matches with your home.
Flowers not only add value to your home but if the flower bed is well organized and established at a neat open place, then it would make your home look magnificent. When it comes to designing a flower bed, the best tool is your brain; to think of new innovative and out of the box designs. But to save you from those efforts, we here show you some wonderful typical designs for you to directly choose from. Just pick the one you like or mix two, maybe three to get the best out of your garden!
In-air flower beds
In-air flower beds suit best for small yards or insides of your office or home. For this flower bed, all you need is a little space to hang a little flower-bed. The bed could be made from wooden or metal discs, flat and shallow containers and whatnot!
Hanging Flower Bed
This is one of the coolest and the most different idea. You can make a netted overhead flower bed and plant flowers in it and just simply let them–hang around. It is a spectacular gravity defying feat and nonetheless exceptionally lovely!
Towering Flower Beds
Your flower beds need not stop just at the front veranda. In fact, you can build a beautiful topsy-turvy towering flower bed with just some terra-cotta pots and a few other thing-ies. Furthermore you can beautify it using some extra supplies like colored lights. These are really easy to make and you can make as many as you want.
Vertical Flower Beds
If you do not want a suspended flower bed and neither do you have a good place to pot those flowers, then possibly, a vertical flower bed is what you need. All you need is some wooden or thick fiberboard and you could attach little pots to it. Hang it anywhere you want, behind a flower bed or just alongside your backyard wall. You can also add a few springy plants for additional styling
Rock Flower Bed
Having some flora is great, but to make it really stunning you need to upgrade it with some extra “jewels”. For instance, you could make plant your flowers in a beautiful pattern. Or you could plant them in rows and separate rows with rocks with an additional mid-center rock. You could also mix this idea with a raised flower bed with a solid concrete bed. Join the rocks on select places and fill the remaining area with potting soil.
Raised Flower Beds
You could also add some elevation to your flower bed, making it more visible and help it stand out from the rest of the garden; this also would eliminate the need of boundary. The elevation could be gradually escalating or just a plain steep wall. Also, this would help you get some area so you could replace the soil.
Now that you have created your flower bed and filled it with fertile soil, it’s time to move to our next step: What flowers should you plant?
Answer is just another straight question: What colors do you like? I do not expect you to be a botanist or flower specialist, so names of some pretty perennial flowers are provided here with their respective colors:
- Peruvian lily: Saffron-orange with a few dark stripes
- Aster Frikarti: Purple
- Coneflower: Pink
- Mango punch(Coreopsis): Yellow
- Forget-me-not: Cyan
- Gloriosa daisy: Yellow
- Heuchera: Reddish hue
- Salvia leucantha: Purplish-pink
A garden with lushly blooms creates a beautiful aura inside and around your house. And not just beauty, it would increase the value of your property too which could help you get more money for the same home if and when you plan to move somewhere else and need to sell it. These definitely require time to time maintenance but they are not depreciation assets. So, final words, do not get cringy when spending for gardens and flower beds. Buy durable and strong garden accessories instead of cheap ones. So, let us not waste any more time and simply get started
