To create a garden that is adjacent to a house, it must be set up not only with plants of various types (the choice of which is conditioned by factors of different nature), but also with outdoor furniture, if the size of the area allows it.
It is advisable to organize it in a varied manner, with ornamental areas alternating with shaded areas; with evergreen corners, with espaliers or palisades covered with vines, to give a decorative but also useful appearance.
Furnishing a home garden, in fact, means being able to have an area where different varieties of plants coexist and where you can enjoy pleasant areas, thanks to the presence of benches, tables and chairs, of umbrellas and gazebos, of swings and in any case enriched with outdoor furniture so as to make your home not just a home but a nice place to live with your family.
A good rule, before setting up the garden, is to analyze some aspects that could condition the result, namely:
- extension of the garden
- weather conditions
- garden display
- type of sunshine
- types of irrigation
- shape and materials of the containers needed for the potted plants
- coexistence between plant species
- types of land
- possible limiting factors
- proximity of urban areas
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.
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.
OUTDOOR TABLES AND CHAIRS
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.
They are formed by a generally metallic support, of quadrangular shape and anchored firmly to the ground, which supports some parts of sturdy canvas and treated for exteriors, partly fixed (the roof) and partly movable (the walls).
They vary in size, depending on their use; they often cover areas with tables or chairs, consider the park's "relaxation points".
They can also be formed from wooden espaliers, covered with climbing plants (such as: wisteria or Canadian vine).
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 park, preferably under trees with wide and thick foliage.
Sometimes they are extremely simple structures, consisting of a seat hung with chains on a support fixed firmly in the ground.
The choice of the different species to be housed can range between:
- arboreal plants
- shrubby plants
- evergreen plants
- climbing plants
- herbaceous plants
- flowering plants
- Mediterranean plants
- rustic plants
- fat plants
- aquatic plants (if there is a body of water)
Here are some useful tips on the varieties of vegetables that can be used:
It is an ornamental tree, with a thick crown and a rounded shape, with a slender and columnar trunk, up to 25-30 meters high.
The leaves are heart-shaped, with a serrated edge, of an intense green color, with alternate insertion.
The flowers are small, inconspicuous, but very fragrant whitish inflorescences.
The fruits are small capsules rich in seeds.
It must be exposed in full light, in fertile, well-drained, deep soils, enriched with peat, humus and clay.
It bears pollution and is well adaptable.
Climbing, flowering and evergreen plants
It is a climbing plant, evergreen, with very thin and semi-woody stems, suitable for covering walls.
The leaves, petiolate or sessile, have an intense green color and are covered by a thick whitish hair.
The flowers, very showy and decorative, have a corolla with 7 long petals well separated from each other, pink, purple or lilac.
It requires a soft, fresh and well-drained soil.
It must be exposed in very sunny areas of the balcony, even under direct sunlight, as flowering does not occur if the light is not sufficient.
It prefers mild temperatures and fears the cold.
It is an ornamental herbaceous plant that has robust, straight stems, up to ninety centimeters high, which hold bright green lance-shaped leaves.
The flowers, with petals with irregular margins, are gathered in flower-shaped inflorescences, formed by an outer crown of large and sterile elements and an inner one of small and fertile elements, with the typical blue color, although there are white and pink varieties, very scented.
The fruits are achenes provided with a feathery appendage that facilitates the dispersion of the seeds.
It requires a soft and well-drained soil, fertile for the addition of organic material and humus.
It is a very resistant plant that adapts to every type of soil and to any weather condition.
It is an evergreen or semi evergreen herbaceous plant depending on the variety.
It presents an underground rhizome from which a herbaceous stem starts, up to a meter high, with leaves with full pennate or bipinnate lamina, slender, arched or hanging, of a bright green color.
The plant forms thick tufts that prefer the shady and humid areas of the garden, with a mild climate (minimum temperature of ten degrees).
It requires frequent spraying and fertilization to be carried out at least once a month.
