Rustic gardens

The rustic gardens have an appearance that contrasts with that of the so-called "English gardens".
In fact, while the latter are presented with lawns always cut grass, with hedges with geometric shapes, with symmetrical flower beds and plants with an ordered appearance; the former are much more natural, with hedges or vases arranged in freedom, and have the purpose of recreating a country setting.
These are "country" gardens, with a simple structure, not at all artificial, which aim to respect a balance between often autochthonous natural species, even at the expense of the plant housing order.
Often areas are also created for the cultivation of aromatic and medicinal plants, or small vegetable gardens.
In the preparation of rustic gardens you can choose:
- trees
- shrubby plants
- evergreen plants
- climbing plants
- herbaceous plants
- flowering plants
- aquatic plants (if a body of water is available)
Finally, it is important to examine some preliminary aspects, namely:
- extension of the garden
- exposure
- weather conditions
- type of solar radiation
- types of land
- coexistence between plants.
