Even in a small area you can fit both a house, a garden with a garden, and a flower garden. Landscape composition can be composed not only of ornamental plants, but also fruit trees. After all, with proper layout, they look just as good.
In landscape design, fruit trees are rarely used, because there are many ornamental shrubs and trees that can make an attractive composition on the site. But do not dismiss fruit trees: they are able to bring their own flavor to the design. And now we will prove it!
Site design selection
The main task is to make a plot of 3 weave as comfortable as possible and at the same time be able to place not only a couple of compact flower beds with flowers, but also plants that will bring practical benefits. Therefore, we chose an orchard as a design solution.
The fruit garden in this version is the basis of the style, and all other objects and elements only complement it. The site consists of two terraces (top and bottom), each of which is a separate territory with its own "concept" and landing rules. Such a garden can be combined using the same design of retaining walls, common materials, or by planting the same ornamental plants.
It looked like the site before the start of work
Despite the small area, the site is very functional: there is a fruit garden area, a gazebo with barbecue and a small pond. The garden zone is represented by such trees as peach, plum, apricot, pear.
Fruit garden on the upper terrace - a year after planting
A peach is planted in the foreground, so that the owners can admire the beauty of the flowering tree from the windows of the house and sitting in the gazebo. The fence is masked by grape varieties.
In the arbor leads a decorative path from the cuts of acacia. The building itself is twined with climbing roses. Around the gazebo placed group planting of spray roses. The whole plot is covered with lawn.

A successful solution is to locate fruit trees on the opposite side of the gazebo: this increases the area of the lawn near the building.
The site is especially beautiful in summer
A flower bed of perennials
The transition between the upper and lower terrace is decorated with a perennial flower garden. Plants are selected in such a way that flowering is continuous.

Bulbs, irises, bloom in April-May. In June-August - brilliant rudbeckia, purple Echinacea, lilies of various varieties, hosts. In September-November - the garden chrysanthemum and the alpine aster delight the eye.

Fruit garden in summer 2 years after planting
The fence is covered with climbing roses. Lavender and boxwood are planted between fruit trees in square-shaped compositions.
It looks like the lower terrace immediately after planting
Both terraces combine roses (the peak of their flowering occurs in the summer), as well as tulips and daffodils planted around fruit trees (the time of flowering is spring). The entrance area to the house is also decorated with beds of perennial flowers.
Thus, on several weave it was possible to place both ornamental flowers and equally attractive fruit trees.
