Color is so important when you are starting out with your gardening design. Even if you are planting a vegetable garden the main purpose of which is the providing of healthy and nutritious food, it's good to make sure it looks good to you. If your garden is just flowers, color becomes even more important. When it comes to plants and flowers, there are not only many different colors, but also many shades of each color. Any person who has ever tried to plant roses, to use one example, understands exactly how many different kinds of reds and pinks there are out there.

This way you can keep it controlled and choose colors that will actually compliment each other.

An English cottage garden is a good choice for someone who likes an informal design. English estate gardens are extremely formal, it's true, but the cottage styled gardens are wilder, more casual and look more natural. This is also very appropriate if you are forced to garden in a limited space because cottage gardens are very dense and make use of each and every inch of space that is available. There is no single way to plant your cottage garden but, most of the time, they contain lots of different types of flowers. Roses and other pretty smelling flowers are usual choices as are herbs and edible plants. These gardens almost always have a very natural look and will usually include things like climbing vines on fences or walls. It's not hard to take the basic idea behind the English cottage garden and plant the plants that are naturally growing in your area.

Solar lights, which come in all sorts of different sizes and shapes are a fantastic way to light your garden. Do a little bit of experimenting and put your lights in the best places for properly showing off your garden. After you have been gardening for awhile, you will realize how rewarding it can be to design your own ultimate garden.
