Rose Garden Design Tips Rose Garden Design Tips

Establishing a rose garden in your yard is an age-old tradition that continues to thrive. When you design your own garden, there are four things to conside: the shape of your garden, the visual effect, the scent of your roses and the seasons the roses are in bloom.

Shape

This is where you consider whether you want your roses to be low to the ground, set in traditional rows or climbing a trellis. If you don’t have free soil, you can  plant your roses in pots. This frees up the yard and allows you to move the plants as your landscape changes.

Visual

Do you want many colors of roses or different shades of one color? Do you want large or small roses? Do you want heritage roses that are famous for their scent, or do you want new varieties that have beautiful blossoms? 

Scent

Newer varieties of roses lack the distinct scent of old heritage roses. If you want both the vibrant beauty of newer roses along with the scent of the old, plant the different varieties next to one another. 

Seasons

Finally, consider when different varieties bloom. It is possible to buy roses that bloom at different times of the year. If you stagger them, you will have a longer growing season.
