Furnishing gardens

To furnish the gardens it is important to take into consideration a series of factors, such as the extension of the available area, the exposure, the general climatic conditions, the types of terrain. Once all these parameters have been evaluated, it is also possible to choose which elements to include in the green space. Let's see together which are the most loved furnishings of all time:
These are structures dedicated to the seat and formed by slats, generally made of wood material treated with water repellent enamels, or of painted metal with anti-rust products.
They are rarely made of cement.
They have a very resistant metal skeleton that supports the entire structure and is anchored to the ground by blocking supports.
They are generally placed under the tree tops, to offer a pleasant relaxation opportunity.
They are wooden or metal structures, which have undergone a protective and conservative treatment, used to furnish the garden, creating areas for refreshment (outdoor lunches or picnics) or reading.
They are often placed under umbrellas (most garden tables have a central hole specially created to house the umbrella support), or under gazebos, to take advantage of a shaded area.

Umbrellas and swings

There are innumerable types and forms of umbrellas: often they are quadrangular structures, sometimes round, with variable dimensions.
They have a supporting structure in metal or wood treated with protective substances and water repellents, which supports a very resistant canvas roof.
The central support (stick) must be inserted in a base, generally of concrete, heavy and stable.
There are also aerial varieties that are suspended from supports with an inverted "L" shape, and that offer the advantage of not having the central stick and, consequently, they can be placed much more easily.
These furnishings are essentially dedicated to relaxation, consisting of a seat suspended from metal structures with a quadrangular base anchored to the ground.
They are covered with cushions of various shapes and sizes and their location is always located in fresh and shady parts of the garden, preferably under trees with wide and thick foliage.

Types of gardens

There are different landscape models that can be inspired in the creation of gardens, in each of which it is preferable to house some varieties of plants rather than others, in relation to various conditioning factors.
These models are:
Classic garden
It is an installation inspired by a remarkable aesthetic rigor, with wide expanses of green lawns alternated with ordered flower beds and hedges cut according to geometric patterns.
It is a very nice garden, which can be artificial.
In this case the plants to be housed belong to many species: both arboreal (when the size is sufficiently large), shrubby or bushy, or climbing or evergreen, but above all flowery, since the main purpose of this garden is ornamental.
Rustic garden
It contrasts with the previous one because its layout is based on spontaneity, where plants, often native, should recreate a balance between themselves and the surrounding nature.
It is an example of a country garden, not at all artificial, but definitely natural.
The plants to be chosen for this type of preparation are mainly rustic varieties, belonging to adaptable species, bushy and evergreen, but also flowery, often aromatic (like lavender, mimosa, sage, rosemary).

Rocky, Mediterranean and Zen garden

Rock garden
It is a garden characterized by the presence of: rocks, river stones and vegetables, which are generally cultivated on terraces.
The plants must be well adaptable to particular climatic conditions (often living in shady areas), and logistic (they have little space available to grow).
The species to be housed belong to the bush and shrub, evergreen and climbing genus, generally with medium or small dimensions, in relation to the availability of the land in the terraced areas (type: lavender, caper, heather, myrtle, saponaria, wild bellflower)
Mediterranean garden
It is a garden rich in shrubby, bushy and evergreen plants, preferably adapted to warm climate conditions (typical of the Mediterranean basin), with leaves of reduced dimensions (to reduce transpiration) and sclerofile
There is a wide range of vegetables named precisely: "Mediterranean scrub", which possess the indispensable attributes for living and growing in climates of this genus (such as: laurel, juniper, lavender, olive, tamarisk)
Zen garden
It is a garden inspired by the principles of Japanese culture, where three elements alternate: water, rocks and plants; whose disposition has the purpose of allegorically representing man's journey towards eternity.
Often there are pools of water, crossed by bridges, and containing aquatic plants (like the water lily)
His particularly well-groomed appearance stimulates contemplation and creates a flow of energy between man and nature.
The species suitable for this garden are hydrophilic varieties, which prefer fresh and moist environments (such as fern and bamboo), or flowering plants (such as azalea).
