Place metal flower bed edging close to your house, where the flowers can be enjoyed from both windows and terrace. Place the bed in full or partial sun, as many of the flowering roses and perennials prefer sun. Think about whether your bed is in shade or full sun when choosing plants. Also check the soil conditions in the bed – a heavy, clay soil does not work well with plants suitable for sandy soil.
Consider how to use the garden. If a lot of football or volleyball is played on the lawn, the bed must not be larger than there is still room for play on the grass. Consider how much time you will spend on your bed. A large bed with many different species that bloom at different times requires more time than, for example, a lawn. Be realistic. Although you choose plants that require a minimum of maintenance, a bed must be cared for.
Make sure the bed is in harmony. There must be the same fullness and uniform color scheme throughout the bed. Although the bed must contain different color scales, it must give a beautiful, unified whole. Place either the largest plants at the rear and the lowest at the front, if the bed is adjacent to the lawn. Or think the bed as an individual room where the edges are walls, and the furniture is made up of massive bushes or groupings of the same kind of flowers.
