What is the best way to design a rose garden?
The variety of roses you select are dependent on the space you have available, if you only have small area then perhaps miniature roses are the best bet. Standard roses require more space and climbing roses also need space so that they can stay healthy, so they need to be planted at least 8 feet apart.
Once you have determined the varieties, you can then decide on the colors. Roses are available in a host of colors, yet the old breeds provide roses that are easier to care for as they are sturdier. You could design our rose garden in patterns too by planting different varieties including different sized roses with miniature roses in between. You could use a variety of colors and alternate them to create a pattern or you could stick to one color and choose different varieties so that the pattern created is not so much in the color but in the different textures. Many people choose roses that will compliment their house color, or they use their home as a backdrop in order to make their rose garden stand out.
When you plant your roses you need to make sure each species is spaced according to its specific needs, that your planting is symmetric, and will eventually offer an aesthetically pleasing picture. Try not to plant haphazardly as a rose garden is best when it is kept simple and in geometric patterns or in an ever decreasing or increasing circle.
Roses can be difficult to grow yet they are some of the most beautiful flowering plants to have in a garden. Being able to segregate a section of your garden for the intent purpose of planting roses will offer a wonderful focal point to your home.
