How to create a beautiful design of a plot that attracts the attention of neighbors and causes positive feedback from guests?

Evaluate the positive aspects of the site, and make a conclusion about what can be improved. It is important to find a starting point and, taking into account financial opportunities, start the workflow.

Of the important points , we will highlight the following features of the site:

  • The position of the future site based on the cardinal directions. This is important in order to qualitatively protect it from the effects of strong wind;
  • Appearance and location area. Where is it located or will it be created? This is a hilly area, a lowland, maybe some other land;
  • Are there any trees already planted and to which species they belong. These are perennial species, shrubs, ornamental trees or wild fruit-bearing cherries or without fruit. Some of them may have to be removed and planted with something else to form a better design;
  • Soil condition. If there are herbs that grow on its territory, then this may indicate a good composition of the soil. But in this matter it is better to rely on information from a specialist;
  • The current location of the residential building and already existing buildings of various types. Some will have to be demolished, and others will have to be built. It's good if everything is ready right away, and you don't need to change anything;
  • An important point is the study of the groundwater level.

Important: If you are involved in the process of creating a high-quality site design, you need to take into account that they may never end. Some points will have to be updated, others rebuilt, others begin to build.

And plants in general will have to be constantly transplanted. Some of their species are able to live for a year or several years. The process of caring for the territory never ends and you always have to do something, and you always need to be ready for this.

How to organize the work?

You can carefully study examples of the design of country house plots based on the work of specialists who have a name in the design world. They definitely will not offer anything bad and you can learn a lot from them without fear that it will not be fashionable or perceived as a lack of a sense of taste from the owner.

At the same time, if you have your own ideas, you should not give them up. It is recommended to write down everything that came to mind, and it is better to draw on paper. This will allow you not to forget about a good idea.

But modern technologies offer unique computer programs that allow you to create 3D presentations of private plots. They contain a unique set of opportunities for this work. They will be the easiest to work with. They will allow you to see the image that should turn out in the final implementation on the territory of the house.

But these programs are designed for a foreign user and, at best, are offered in English. It will be difficult for a user without advanced knowledge of this language to understand. Although an experienced PC user will eventually be able to understand how to use them.

You can also remember that an imitation of your own plot is built into a PC game called Sims 2, 3, 4 — this feature is available in three of its parts. With its help, you can also turn entertainment into a real project that appeared on your plot of land. It also offers extensive opportunities for creating a project. There is no need to have the skills of an artist.

What color should I rely on when creating a design?

Everyone has probably already realized that the design of a country house should be combined with its external reflection in the area around it. It is advisable to combine the style. Although it is allowed to combine styles into something unprecedented and peculiar, existing only on your land.

Usually such attempts in the eyes of an experienced designer end in failure, but the main thing is that the inhabitants of the dwelling like it. The color can be selected in various variations:

In one tone. The main one will be one color option, combined with various shades. It is important to qualitatively beat the presence of their light or dark versions. It is believed that it is easier to work with this direction. It is easy for him to pick up furniture, plants for planting and other accompanying elements of the scenery.

The two-tone version will help to form a complex design of the suburban area. You will need to work with two colors as the main ones, conducting a profitable game with them by combining and diluting with various shades. One of them is usually green in the form of various plants, and the other is any other suitable for the idea of the author of the work.

But red and blue are considered the least suitable for combining with green. It is better to add a white, woody version of brown or purple color to it.

The multi-color composition also allows you to form a high-quality landscape design and is popular among specialists. This approach is used only by the most venerable professionals, which is due to the complexity of the work and the availability of first-class skills.

But it is recommended to use no more than five different colors. Although they can be supplemented, diluted with many other shades or tones.

If you have your own design ideas for a country house, do not be afraid that they may not be as good as those of professionals. It is worth perpetuating them on various media.

You can use what is available to you now. And then show your sketches to an experienced designer. It will help to improve the idea or point to good places. Although you can do without it.

Sometimes, if you like something, you don't have to rely on some authoritative opinion. You can take and make everything a reality. And then say to yourself, "I did it and that's why I admire my creation."

In any case, you will live on this territory, and what difference does it make whether the design fits some styles or not. The main thing is that there is functionality and the owner likes everything.
