Садовый стиль "Новая волна"Dutch designer with a world name, Pete Rudolph, created his own style of landscape garden design, which is totally different from his "colleagues". The idea is, the garden must not contain original decorative bushes (trimmed perfect geometric shape), various small architectural forms and other ornament for garden. All you need are plants, taken from the wild, which perfectly complement each other. The name of this style he gave too unusual – "New wave". The main task of "Golfscope" style – to give the owners of the garden complete peace of mind, comfort and freedom while in the garden.

Natural garden style

The idea of the style of Piet Rudolph used the motto "Maximum effect with minimum cost". And in truth, to create a natural style not need a special exotic plants, and Vice versa, you should use simple, years. These include cereals, perennials and bulbous. Another "trick" this style is, that garden looks fantastic even with the fading of all plants.

As for the basics of composition, it consists of "romashkovidnye" perennials, Euphorbia, Burnet, sedums and Phlox. The height of the composition is created with the help of Maclay, the spiny dogfish and giant golovchatoi. The volume gives grass and umbrella plants.

The advantage of the "New wave" is, what are the components of the composition are very durable, not expensive and do not require care. All you need is soil mulching and removal of self-seeding.

The interplay of shapes and silhouettes, as the basis of style "New wave"

The interplay of shapes and silhouettes the “New wave”

The main point in creating this style, is not the color palette make up the composition of plants, a harmonious combination of shapes and silhouettes of plants. If you look closely at the examples of "Golfscope" style, you can see, the colors are also chosen wisely. Not observed in bright colors, such as red, blue, yellow, and Vice versa, dominated by pastel shades. Such shades are: different variants of green, fake, silver grey, Golden and lilac. And in truth, the combination of these shades in a composition soothes, inspires and relaxes.

As for the shapes and silhouettes of plants, preference was given to "the baskets", "the umbrellas", "balls", "daisies", etc. Although in rare cases there is the presence of leaves and stems.

Due to the fact, to create a continuous line of flowering this composition almost impossible, the unique shape of the flower makes it attractive all year round.

As already mentioned, the basis of the flower garden are perennials, so they have to choose from is not very large flowers, this will give a feeling of lightness. Such perennials include: chamomile, Echinacea, astilbe and tysyacelistnik.

Among deciduous plants an advantage give Maklaya, miscanthus am and botulinic-. As for the "umbrellas" and "candles", they include the Korovyakov, digitalis and posconnika.

The calling card of the "New wave" – grass. The soft green shades of panicles and leaves, arrows can serve as a smooth transition from one plant species to another. Even in the winter, dry stalks of cereal look beautiful under a layer of snow. The only problem is these plants that, that they eventually displace other species of plants, it is therefore necessary when creating a song to dig around their roots agricultural fiber, or a piece of tin.

As for the background, which will house plants, it is necessary that it was a garden or grove. If a small garden plot, and the whole composition is placed within the fence, do not worry, you can decorate the fence with hedges and then the beauty of the "New wave" will not be called into question.

Oh and last thing when choosing the location for the flower garden is the sunlight. If the rays would nakos fall on the flower garden, all the beauty of the garden is revealed, therefore, an ideal place for plants is a South-Western or Western part of the site.
