But even if you think the question “How create I my garden?”, one can think something else instead of the approach. Including also such, one could understand that you like to draw inspiration from the one or another geographical region. And Yes, exactly! So we want to understand like this question today.
A pleasant garden with garden furniture set and many plants
On a garden and landscape seminar in the United States, in Africa or Asia, we would talk about the European plants as “exotic”. It’s for us, something funny as Europeans in the first moment.

If you want to appear in your garden in a typical European style, then you should continue to think of many seating areas with benches distributed in the middle of the nature. Creeks, published classical sculptures and arches covered with greenery and flowers are also very typical.

Dodge the exoticism or put this in a separate area
At this point, you could rephrase the main question of the article somewhat. So as one could ask: “How I can make my garden in European style and thereby integrate a little exoticism?”. Generally, it is not recommended to mix European and exotic plants within a garden concept.
The types on which you should focus for the first time, would be as an example:
-For the design: different types of bushes and cherry Myrtle (Eugenien)
-To the flanking of the garden paths: low growing plants such as stone herbal, forget-me-not, geraniums, carnations, Begonias and small roses
-For green fences you could make the following kinds: ordinary PRIVET (Ligustrum vulgare), Myrtle (Myrtus communis), snowball (Viburnum), Calliandra Twedii
-Evergreens, which could put further accents are azaleas, gardenias, jasmine and camellias.
-As Creepers selection does not go beyond mostly the rose bushes.

The different eras
The classical structure of the garden had a different face in all eras. If you look at this from today’s perspective, you have the opportunity to create a combination of the best features of different eras. Regards the paths and fountains, you should draw inspiration especially from the Renaissance and later periods.
As I said, can and have been integrated for centuries many plant exotic from a European perspective this garden style. You should noticed that probably also on the display from above.
But also the creation of a specially cultivated winter garden, heat – and brings in moisture-loving species is common. But that would be a theme for themselves… In another article, we’ll cover it! Promised!
