A well-kept garden, synonymous with class and elegance

It is no coincidence that the profession of architect and garden designer is experiencing a moment of great growth, despite the period of economic crisis that is affecting and involving the entire planet. Born from the need to tame the natural vitality of the plants, to obtain gardens with trees that look like sculptures, and to give each exterior an orderly and neat appearance, the professional profile of the garden architect has quickly developed, meeting the favor of the public successfully, thanks to the new concept of gardens and open spaces which led to a reasoned reflection on the appearance of the exterior and their value to illuminate the overall vision of the dwelling. Precisely because of the growing attention to gardens, interest in garden trees, their characteristics and peculiarities and the methods of care and cultivation has become widespread. Trees are in fact the fulcrum on which to develop our green project, the cornerstone of the overall structure that we will proceed to confer on the garden.

The garden trees, the kings of the green side of the house

Garden trees are essential to create a romantic shade in periods of sun and summer heat, they form a sort of barrier to protect the privacy of the home front and can create real green rooms, separate and protected environments, like the small green islands in which to take refuge to reflect, to relax or to have a reserved space to receive friends or to have a tea immersed in the luxuriant and luxuriant greenery of well-kept plants and filled with adequate attention. Garden trees also have a fundamental role in protecting the home and environments from the action of the wind, allowing a benefit also in terms of energy saving; worrying about wind protection means having a natural barrier with respect to cold and temperature changes in winter, and shade and refreshment from the heat in summer, allowing a lower cost for heating in the frost season, and saving on air conditioners and fans in period in which the heat hood descends to envelop our environments. Let us not forget that garden trees represent a sort of bodyguards that preserve us from the attention of prying eyes and create the right intimacy and privacy for our housing complex, delicately isolating us from external noises and cushioning annoying sounds and smells connected to smog and 'pollution.

A first practical approach to garden trees

Implanting garden trees is certainly a choice to be made in a reasoned and conscious manner, after carefully evaluating the types to be planted, according to aesthetic and functional criteria, but also in virtue of the related management and maintenance commitments of the plants. The quickest choice is related to the possibility of going to specialized and certified nurseries, which can correctly advise us with regard to our needs, and provide us with controlled plants free of viruses and infections that could extend to all domestic greenery. The nurseryman will provide his experience and the range of most suitable trees, plants and shrubs to take root in our garden, also providing indications on the size and height of the plants, in relation to their species and age. Keep in mind that buying plants that are grown in the nursery, to have an immediate "garden with trees" effect, will mean sustaining a greater cost than buying younger seedlings and trees to care for and grow in your garden. In addition, some plants are sold with bare roots, to be immediately planted in the ground, while others will be delivered to us in crates or pots, to then be transplanted into our garden. Great attention must be paid to the fateful moment of planting trees: it is necessary to take into account the regulations that regulate the distances between tree and tree, and between tree and own and third party buildings. In fact, while the civil code and municipal regulations sanction the distances to be respected for planting trees and fence hedges with respect to the properties of third parties, it is also necessary to take into account the power of the tree roots, which can affect the foundations as they grow of buildings and undermine the stability of walls. For trees with high stems and high penetration, it is essential to always respect the minimum distance of at least six meters from the nearest building or masonry structure, also considering the advantages and defects of the "shadow" issue to avoid the opposite effect of isolate your home from sunlight.

Small tips on how to choose garden trees

The trees that can be grown depend on the species of plants available, taking into account the fact that to make a row or a fence hedge, trees of the same species must be planted in single file (tendentially tall and elongated varieties, such as cypresses and poplars), while for a double row trees will need to have two rows of trees on the sides of the avenue to be created (umbrella or wide trees, such as lime trees, maritime pines, maples, magnolias and cherry trees) are well suited to the case.
To create a fifth it is necessary to create an alignment of trees of the same species, with dense foliage to preserve from excess solar exposure or ventilation (in these cases we recommend holm oaks, yews, carob trees, laurels and cypresses, but also eucalyptus and lentisks) .
Very widespread in the South, the gardens designed to recreate the atmosphere of the Mediterranean scrub, mixing trees and shrubs to emulate the mix of smells, scents and sensations produced by strawberry trees, myrtles, junipers, oaks and brooms.
Finally, the curtains mix varieties of trees of different species, creating a kaleidoscope of colors and types of foliage, heights and widths of the hoods, arranged according to the desired order. For those who should have large spaces, it is also possible to create cover or decorative woods.
But going back to the garden of our house, very popular in recent times is the creation of small green stanzwe, with the walls of orange and lemon trees, very fragrant and colored in every season, to create an effect of the five in the really pretty green and of sure impact. Mimosa trees also prove to be timeless, whose increasingly early flowering thanks to climate change now delights our gardens from late January to late May, depending on the latitude of our garden. Increasingly appreciated, especially in the villas of northern Italy, the olive trees pruned for decorative purposes: to form small spheres or to create a pleasant hood, the crown of this tree lends itself very easily to be tamed for artistic purposes by expert and wise hands . But the pomegranate trees, chosen for the beauty of the plant and for the delicious and succulent fruits, rich in vitamins useful for the well-being, also live a decisive moment. All the evergreen conifers are constantly appreciated, such as fir trees, ornamental and rich in colors and varieties, beautiful in every season and particularly suitable for the winter period, in which they dress with lights and decorations for a seductive and luminous atmosphere ... and it is immediately party!
