Patios. Monday , August 06th , 2018 - 22:13:18 PM
Creative patio ideas will come flooding to you. Just think of the different elements you can arrange to suit your garden designer's eye. First you can decide on the size of Spanish Rings to fit your flower pots - these are currently available to hold small, medium or large pots that hold pots up to a top rim-to-rim diameter of 8\" or 20cm. You can use either plastic or clay/terracotta pots or even conical baskets that will 'sit' either higher or lower in the Ring depending on the flare of the pot or basket.
Your patio ideas will start to sparkle with your choice of plants. Traditional summer bedding plants often sold by garden centres for use in hanging baskets are candidates. Pelargoniums and standard trailing geraniums in searing red really punch out from a white background. Trailing fuchsias can look stunning. But don't stop there. Add some ferns, evergreens, grasses or even a selection of succulents. Feeling crazy? Then how about some cherry tomatoes or strawberries for some random planting punctuation!
A good number patio ideas will include investing in lots of great flowers. Pick up intriguing containers to put on the patio, kinds with color and texture. Next fill the pots with herbs such as basil, mint, oregano and cilantro. A majority of these will add an enjoyable scent as well as produce fresh cuttings for salads and also other dishes. There are lots of vegetables that also do remarkably in containers. Raising the vegetables in baskets also makes them easier to maintain and keep bug free.
Planning patio terraces along the slope will be able to increase the amount of usable areas.
4) Add night bloomers. There are night-blooming plants that can be surprisingly effective for a nighttime garden. Many vines like moonflower bloom only at night, and the smell of honeysuckle in the evening is divine. Also consider plants that may not look amazing, but smell amazing. Sticking some herbs in between flagstones can be effective -- as people walk on them, the smell is delicious.
So if most of the time you have to spend in your patio is going to be at night, it only makes sense to design the patio so its a great place to be at night. This means you'll do things a bit differently than if you were designing it for the day, though almost all of these ideas work perfectly well for daytime use.
