Designing a good home is everybody’s dream regardless it is minimalist, contemporary or classic style; whether it is old or new house, everyone likes to have a comfortable place to stay.
There are many ways to make our house looks beautiful like repainting the wall, adding some ornaments or decorating the interior including designing a garden. This time, we are going to discuss about minimalist garden design for our home.
Garden is taking the essential part that share a natural beauty to our home. Minimalist garden is designed intentionally, to bring the nature to our home even though the area is small. Moreover, people like to have a minimalist garden as it is easy and not consume much time to maintain.
Is it difficult to have a minimalist garden since we have only little space? Generally, the concept will follow to our interior and exterior design of our home.
We can call a landscape expert to design it for us, but we must be ready to pay a lot of money. It doesn’t matter if we have budgeted for it. However, actually it is not difficult to create a minimalist garden as long as we have more time and follow our simple guides below.
Make a border or fence
The minimalist garden design concept basically uses “a fine line”. To do that, we have to have a wall border or fence on the garden. The function is as a divider that can give a great effect to the garden design.
Pavestones are the right choice for minimalist garden. However, we must be careful enough for the pavestones arrangement and placement.
Pavestones have some colors like grey, dark grey, or red. Mainly, we use the grey or dark grey. The other colors can be used only for combinations.
If it is not possible to have a pond fish due to the space limitation, than we can make a water fountain instead. The water fountain has many designs. We can create it one or we can purchase it from the garden store.
The placement of water fountain is usually on the side that doesn’t have much plant or no plants at all. The water fountains can ease our tension after office or working hours.
Actually, there are no rules about it. However, try to arrange the plants by combining several plant species on the same location.
Finally, creating a minimalist garden needs a good plan and creativity. We focus about the details. However, all the efforts, times and energy will be paid equally if we succeed to do it.
