You can improve the attractiveness of your yard by choosing the appropriate shrubs, garden edges, plants and flowers. Before you start designing your front and back yard, you need to create an inventory of your front and back space. As there are many landscaping ideas to choose from, try to find one that would be best suited to your space and then make adjustments to create your perfect garden. Consider that you might have a pool or playground for the kids, or if you want to work outside, you make room for a flower garden. For some people, it is their dream to always grow their own vegetables and herbs.

Use compost and mulch to build healthy soil and improve plant resistance to pests and diseases. Limit the widespread use of gravel, rocks and other inert mulches. Although they work well for keeping weeds, these mulches do not return organic matter to the environment. Look for a certified mulch free of wood contaminants treated at the ACC. More information can be found on the website of the professional mulch association - the Mulch and Soil Council (http://www.mulchandsoilcouncil.org). â € ¢ Design paved areas so that paving modules (such as bricks or pavers) do not require excessive cutting and loss of material. Use bridges, patios, ponds, retaining walls, garden walls and rock gardens to add interest and create spaces, but find a good balance between these hardscape elements and the planted areas.
The rhythm is the repetition of elements of design. Repetition helps to attract the eye through design. The rhythm occurs when the elements appear in a defined direction and in regular measurements. Both color and shape can be used to express the rhythm (Figure 19 - 7). Accent is the inclusion of an element that stands out in an orderly design. For example, the silvery leaves are scattered on a background of dark green conifers (Figure 19 - 8). Without accent, a design can be static or dull. An accent may be a garden accessory, a plant specimen, a plant composition, or a water element. Rocks are often used as accents, but they can be overused.
