If you enjoy general rose gardening, landscaping with roses may be something you will love. Landscaping involves planning out the plants, flowers, and trees for a space, whether it is in front of a large corporate building or in someone’s yard. When you begin landscaping rose gardens, you’ll find that the beauty of the roses brings something more to the picture and also gives you a sense of fulfillment in your work.
In landscaping, you have a dimensional space to fill, much as you do with a regular rose garden. However, now you must incorporate the rose garden into a space that also includes trees, bushes, and other floral arrangements which assist in the beautification of the space in question. You’ll want to begin with a pencil and paper, sketching out the area that you’ll be using to plant your rose garden, surrounded by the other elements of the landscape. Without a plan, attempting to landscape with any product is impossible, so this is the first step of the process.
Once you’ve determined where your rose bushes are going to go, it is important to color coordinate the rose bushes with both the other elements of your landscape and the home or building in question. In other words, if you have orange hibiscus plants in front of a window, you would not want to plant pink roses right next to it. Likewise, if you are working with a plant that blooms a pale blue, purple rose bushes would compliment this area of you landscape.
Keep in mind that rose bushes need their space as you are planning out the landscape and the rose garden areas. Also, too many plants and flowers appear cluttered, so remember than minimalist is better than going ballistic with the amount of plants with which you decide to cover the landscape.
