Yes, I have imagination. I went to art school for three years, so that counts. I played with this rose garden before on the program and discovered it looks better to group by color. So on the back porch, you will first see yellow (climbers on the pillar) followed in order from the left the corner back back to the left field. Purple, yellow, red, white, peach, orange, peach, red, white. Perennials and ornamentals frame the garden. If you look behind the pool you will just see pink. Anyway, this give you the idea of the vision I had for this garden.
|For a beginner, I don't think it looks half bad...and you will see this while sitting in the living room, informal dining room and kitchen.|
I have nine more roses on the way but with over 60 in this bed, I don't its going to make an impact on the design. I was using the trial version of the landscaper program...Click Here for the link. Because I wanted a better idea of what the rose garden would look like. Believe it or not, I think is a conservative estimate of what it will look like. I did group by colors. I didn't include the climbers in this photo...two are going up the jap magnolia in the background..one of them is a don juan and the other a climbing golden shower, and two climbing white icebergs on the pen's fence above the Europenas..way in the back....two climbers are on the pillar next to where I am standing...two golden showers and one pinata to be grown against the house wall. This is the view from the back porch and what people will see while in the living room since the back of the house is almost all windows.
This is the picture I used to do use the program.
These are the photos from one month ago...I believe New Year's day
