Garden design ideas

Everyone has a definite image in their head about what make their garden a dream one. You should always keep the conditions of the land in mind, as well as their own personal preference and taste. You can inject a “feel-good” factor into your garden design to help it feel welcoming and inviting to both you and your guests.

For those who are blessed with a green thumb, you can let off steam and get your creative juices flow by implementing your own design. Just browse through all our images to find your perfect garden design ideas, small garden ideas and landscaping design ideas.
How to effectively plan a garden or landscape?

If you want to effectively plan a garden design, you should first gather ideas and if there is a need enlist in the help from a gardening expert, landscape designer or landscape architect. It is always advisable to consult an expert, especially if you intend to make major changes. Ultimately, they know all about weather resistant materials and low-maintenance plants. Let them know what type of garden ideas you had in mind during the planning stage.

Garden décor

For those who have the luxury of a large outdoor space, decorations can be applied as freely and easily as inside the house. From umbrellas to furniture upholstery, sofas, pillows and chairs, all these can add colour and texture to your garden or terrace. Don’t forget that the colors your plants bloom with can be used as a decoration, too. You can also easily set the mood with the garden accessories or decorations you choose. For example, if you wish to create a moody romantic space, think about installing lighting that will create this atmosphere. Alternatively, if you’re more of a traditional, albeit, quirky type, you can always add a friendly gnome or a bird bath to add that special something!

Patio, terrace garden decking ideas
Since most gardens branch out from a patio, deck or terrace, the design of these two spaces should go hand-in-hand with your garden. In terms of flooring, there are a variety of options and designs available. While timber has a warm and friendly effect, stone exudes a cool elegance that is also very easy to clean and maintain. Ultimately, what you choose is a matter of taste and depends on the conditions of the surrounding.

Superstar Designer of Lurie Garden Revisits his Masterpiece …

Among the treasures in Chicago’s Millennium Park is a 2 1/2-acre garden by one of the most influential garden designers of our day. Piet Oudolf has become world renowned for his naturalistic approach to gardening, focusing on perennials. And he brought that expertise to his design of the Lurie Garden.

The Dutch master occasionally returns to Chicago to personally tend to the garden. We caught up with him at the downtown oasis he considers one of his favorite works.  

TRANSRCIPT

Visitors enjoy the Lurie Garden, the creation of renowned Dutch garden designer Piet Oudolf. (Eddie Arruza / Chicago Tonight)

Eddie Arruza: Unlike many designers who may move on from their projects after they’re completed, Piet Oudolf returns to his creations to survey and update them. It’s been a couple of years since his last visit to the Lurie Garden, but the renowned Dutch garden designer says his urban oasis of native plants and flowers is coming along beautifully.

Piet Oudolf, Lurie Garden Designer: I think it became richer, it became mature, it became a completely different landscape than we have installed.

I create the sort of freedom so that the garden can evolve in a better way.

Arruza: When Oudolf was tapped to create the Lurie Garden during the construction of Millennium Park, he was already a superstar of the gardening world. As a leading practitioner of the so-called new perennial movement, his projects around the world center around native plants that transform and thrive throughout the seasons.

For the Lurie, he applied that theory, but it was his first time working with plants indigenous to the Midwest prairie.

Oudolf: I met people that were in prairie restoration and my interest became bigger and larger, so for me it was very important to put something in the garden that would remind you of prairies.


Arruza: Since it’s unveiling in July of 2004, the Lurie Garden has become an all-seasons attraction for tourists and Chicagoans alike. Located at the southeast tip of Millennium Park, the garden’s ever-shifting colors and textures, set against a spectacular skyline, provide a picture-perfect setting. And for the visitors who take the time to explore the relatively small space, they’ll learn that there’s an estimated 250 species of flora all around them, each with a unique characteristic. 

Oudolf: So this is a Bottle gentian you see, a specific prairie plant. The flowers don’t go open, the insects have to eat themselves into the flower to get to the pollen.

Arruza: Oudolf doesn’t just focus on the plants that go into his gardens. He says it’s also important to know how they will affect and benefit the biodiversity around them. At the Lurie Garden that biodiversity includes dozens of species of birds, butterflies and bees. Oudolf adds that even the plants that may not be at their peak contribute to the overall design of his gardens.

Oudolf: There’s so much more beauty in things that people don’t see as beauty. I think that is what I learn every day.

Arruza: The construction of the Lurie Garden was a feat of engineering as well as garden design. Longtime Chicagoans will recall that the area east of Michigan Avenue between Monroe and Randolph was a rail yard for almost all of the 20th century. When it came to building the Lurie Garden, lightweight geofoam was used to lessen the load on what is now the considered the world’s largest green roof.

But making the garden almost exclusively perennials doesn’t mean that it’s maintenance free. On the contrary, Piet Oudolf says the gardeners who oversee the Lurie in his absence have a lot of work to do in tending to the many varieties as they go through their yearly life cycle. The Lurie’s head horticulturist says she has learned a great deal from Oudolf, including his garden philosophy

Laura Ekasetya, lead horticulturist at Lurie Garden: When you look out at the garden what you see isn’t just one particular thing jumping out at you, taking away your attention, that you’re appreciating the overall landscape and that you’re having a feeling of calm and that as you walk through the garden, you’re noticing the smaller things going on around you: the insect life the bird life, things like that.

Arruza: After his work on the Lurie Garden, Piet Oudolf was commissioned to do another large public space, the High Line in New York City. He says among his many works the Lurie and the High Line are his favorites.

Oudolf: And you know why? Because they’re public and I think that the most rewarding thing is that people can see what you do. That you can share your knowledge–although you cannot teach people how to do it–but that you can make people aware of beauty of things that they have never seen.

Arruza: As he approaches his 72nd birthday, Oudolf appears to have no plans to become a less hands-on gardener. In fact, he says he hopes to return to Chicago more frequently to tend to his local masterwork and see it in its splendor throughout the city’s very distinct four seasons.

More on the story

Free guided walks through the Lurie Garden take place each Thursday, Friday, and Sunday at 11 a.m., but you better hurry: they end for the season on Sept. 23.

What Type of Public Art Should Go in North Square?

Rendering of North Square reconstruction slated for 2017. As part of the project, 10% of funds will go toward a public art installation. City officials are asking residents for feedback on what type of art they would like to see in North Square. (Image: Boston Public Works)

Boston Public Works and the Boston Art Commission recently held a meeting regarding a public art project designated for North Square. The main speaker was Karin Goodfellow, Director of the Boston Art Commission with Ms. Christian Guerra, Collection Coordinator, and DPW’s Asst. Civil Engineer Joseph Fleury. Also in attendence was Allison Perlman from Parks Recreation as the Project Manager for the adjacent Rachel Revere Park. Approximately a dozen area residents attended.

The main purpose of the meeting was to announce that Mayor Walsh has earmarked 10% of the North Square’s $2mm construction budget ($200k) for a yet to be determined permanent, public art installation. 

North End residents are being asked for their input and suggestions as to what type of artwork they would like to see in North Square. Suggestions at the meeting included art that might reflect the historical importance of the Square, referencing statues in the Prado and Faneuil Hall as examples.  Other comments included incorporating a nautical theme, a shade pergola, sculpture benches, artistic landscaping and/or a fountain.  DPW’s Fleury noted that a fountain was extremely unlikely due to maintenance requirements that Public Works was unable and/or unwilling to provide.

North Square’s renovation plan calls for construction to begin Spring/Summer 2017 and is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.  However, DPW acknowledged that the schedule could be delayed depending on the design and installation components of whatever public art is eventually chosen for the space.

Goodfellow did not give a specific timeline for how long the RFP process will take, but gave assurances that the selected artist would be required to work closely with the landscape architect in coming up with an acceptable concept for the Square. Perlman said that the $350k renovation of Rachel Revere Park would likely be completed before construction in the Square began.

In advance of a Call for Artists, North End residents are encouraged to provide ideas and feedback. Readers can use the comment section below and/or email joseph.fleury@boston.gov.

Money-saving lawns, gardening class and furniture design show: Home & Garden News

Replace your grass with drought-resistant plants to save money on watering during the hot days of summer.  

MONEY-SAVING LAWNS: Large, grassy lawns soak up a lot of water – and money – during the hot, dry days of summer. There are ways to revamp your landscaping so that it eats up less time and cuts your water bills, according to This Old House. Here are a few tips; see the website for additional ideas.

Less lawn: Decrease the amount of thirsty lawn that requires watering. Consider creating wide planting beds along the front and sides of your house, and fill them with drought-resistant plants.

Cool the grass: “Cut back on fertilizer, mow high, and leave mulched clippings on the lawn to shade the soil and reduce evaporation,” says This Old House.

Water smart: Be sure your sprinklers aren’t adding water too fast, and that the water isn’t falling mostly on hard surfaces. If you see runoff or puddles, adjust your sprinklers accordingly. Most lawns need one inch of water per week.

Choose plants wisely: When choosing landscape plants, avoid hydrangea, azalea, and rhododendron and other shallow-rooted plants that need more watering than other plants. Annuals, especially those planted in containers, also need extra attention come summer.

Get soaked: Trade your normal hoses for inexpensive soaker hoses that ooze water through thousands of tiny pores all along the length of rubber tubing. Hook a soaker hose up to a timer for early morning watering.

Go to This Old House for more water-saving tips.

GARDENING CLASS: Fall is the perfect time for dividing perennials, transplanting plants and planting trees. If you’re unsure how to do these garden chores, check out the class Gardening Through the Year, 7 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 8 at the F. A. Seiberling Nature Center, 1828 Smith Road, Akron.

The class is free and no advance registration is required.

FURNITURE DESIGN SHOW: F*Sho, a contemporary furniture show featuring work from local designers, returns for its eighth year on Friday, Sept. 9.

Landscaping for Drought Could Make Warm Nights Cooler

As drought-stricken residents of Los Angeles’s hottest neighborhoods replace thirsty lawns with native plants, pavers and bare soil, new research has shown how their local climates could begin tipping back in the direction of their desert-like origins.

In a region beset this year by drought and powerful heat waves, the widespread adoption of drought-proof landscaping is expected to bring warmer days — and much cooler nights. Overall, experts say the changes would help to protect residents from heat waves, which are being made worse by global warming.

California, naturally prone to drought, is enduring the fifth year of a historically bad one. Droughts are projected to intensify in California as temperatures rise, reducing mountain snowpacks and soil moisture and potentially altering weather patterns.

To cut water use, utilities and agencies have been helping Californians swap out their lawns for drought-hardy native landscapes. The L.A. Department of Water and Power says more than 24,000 of its water customers have worked to make the switch since 2009.

“You can see the beginnings of some real change in landscaping practices,” said Alex Hall, a professor at UCLA who studies regional and global climate change.

Done at a large enough scale, University of Southern California research published in Geographical Research Letters this month shows how the landscaping changes could affect the weather.

Worsening heat waves are among the clearest and deadliest effects of climate change. The research focused on July temperatures, when heat waves in southern California can be oppressive, taking their heaviest tolls on the elderly, the sick and the poor.

“We were interested in understanding these impacts on a summer month,” said George Ban-Weiss, who researches relationships between local and global climate and who led the new study. “One of our concerns is the health consequences of extreme heat, so we wanted to be sure to study a hot baseline period.”

Hotter Days, But Much Cooler Nights

Using models, Ban-Weiss and a colleague found that replacing lawns and grassy parks with native bushes and other drought-hardy landscapes would increase daytime temperatures throughout the metropolitan area by 1.3°F on average. That’s largely because irrigation water acts like sweat, cooling down landscapes.

The study helps to inform a ‘what if’ thought experiment, in which a future L.A. morphs back toward its original state, free of irrigation, driven by worsening Western droughts.

The findings may also be relevant to other cities where soils are wettened during summer more by sprinklers and hoses than by rainfall.

In the suburban San Fernando Valley, where temperatures are among the highest, and where the natural environment was described in the 1880s as resembling that of a desert, daytime temperatures were projected to rise the most — by 3.4°F.

That would seem to be bad news. Greenhouse gas pollution has warmed the planet’s surface nearly 2°F on average, and natural weather cycles have caused the West to warm faster than most other places in recent decades. Compounding the problem is the urban heat island effect, with concrete causing L.A. and other cities to warm faster than rural regions.

But there was a nocturnal twist to the findings.

“If you stop irrigating, you’re making the system go back to the arid system that it really is,” said Abigail Swann, a University of Washington ecoclimate researcher. “If you’ve spent any time in arid places, you know that they cool very quickly at night and they also heat very quickly during the day.”

Nighttime Lows Help People Recover

At night, the modeling projected a cooling effect from the changing landscapes that would be exceed the daytime warming effect. Across L.A., nighttime lows were projected to fall by an average of nearly 6°F if irrigation suddenly ended.

That’s a key finding, because nighttime lows help people recover daily even as heat waves persist. From a public health perspective, the findings point to a “net positive,” said Patrick Kinney, a professor who directs Columbia University’s climate and health program.

“It’s generally thought that nighttime minimum temperatures are more important for health risks than daytime highs during extreme heat events,” Kinney said.

Most of the water used in Los Angeles is piped in from other counties and regions, and most of that is used to water lawns and gardens. The new findings show that cutting back on irrigation in the low-rainfall metropolis could do more than just save water and the energy needed to transport it — it could save lives.

Climate Central is an independent organization that researches and reports on climate change.
