Advantages and disadvantages
If you still doubt whether it is worth using roses in your personal plot, consider all the attendant advantages and disadvantages of such a choice..
- The beauty. This is the first and most powerful argument. Whatever one may say, but a rose is a flower of extraordinary beauty.
- A large assortment. At the moment there are many fans of this culture. And the breeders took care of them, providing a large selection of different types.

Disadvantages. We calculated the only drawback: poor frost resistance. Roses are thermophilic plants, so the harsh Russian frosts are not to her liking. However, frost-resistant species already exist. In addition, the grafted rose is more resistant to frost. So this question can simply be resolved.
The only drawback of roses is poor frost resistance.
Roses will look very beautiful in the design of the yard
Since we have decided to use roses in garden design, we will consider interesting ideas on how to apply them correctly. There are no specific strict options for arranging the site with roses – who said that you need to act one way or another? But within the framework of one project, you should adhere to the established rules in order to achieve the desired result. Therefore, we offer possible ideas and schemes on how to translate them into reality..
Variety of roses
Decorating the gazebo with roses, a row of bushes near the walls of the house
Curly, tea rose
Arch, composition with a waterfall or pond
Curly, for composition any kind
By the yard (outside)
Hedge, flower garden
Let’s study in more detail the proposed options and methods of their implementation..
You can equip the site in any way
You can decorate anything with roses
Arches with roses in the garden will look very beautiful
Vertical rose garden
This option is very convenient for arranging a shady gazebo. Using curly roses, you will achieve the desired effect and turn an ordinary gazebo into a fabulous corner. To do this, you need to plant bushes at a distance of half a meter from the walls of the gazebo in a fairly dense row. Then you need to make the fasteners. Drive short pegs into the ground next to the bush (so as not to damage the root), tie a tight rope to it (white twine is best), and fasten it to the walls and roof of the gazebo in accordance with the pattern you want to achieve.
As soon as the rose begins to sprout, you need to guide it along the rope, thereby fixing it on it. Further, she will independently adhere to this support..
Another beautiful and unusual version of the vertical rose garden is the arch. Such an element in the landscape design of your site will give it some zest. It is built according to the same principle as the framing of the gazebo, only instead of ropes, a metal arch becomes a support. Optionally, you can attach several ropes to this base to add more volume to the composition..
As soon as the rose begins to grow, it needs to be directed in the right direction.
Curly roses will perfectly complement the landscape design of the yard
We are accustomed to seeing hedges made of a certain type of bushes. But you can create it from roses. Such an idea will look even better, and when it blooms – especially.
You can build such a miracle both in front of the courtyard and in the backyard, and frame the path from the gate to the house. The composition will look good in any area of the site and fulfill its function.
There is nothing difficult in making it. The case is divided into several stages. The first is the most important step: you need to draw a plan for the location of the fence. You can embody any ideas: from a simple line to the most bizarre shapes. In order not to get confused, and subsequently correctly plant the bushes, having achieved the desired pattern, do not ignore this stage.

Choose the color of roses carefully.
We transfer the drawing to the surface of the earth. After calculating the required space, the distance between the bushes and the shape of the hedge, make notes on the areas of land intended for planting.
Moving on to the selection of roses. For a hedge, it is better to use undersized bushes. They are usually compact, like balls, so they can create a hedge effect, especially if you plant them close. But make sure that the distance is sufficient for the normal functioning of the plant, and the roots do not interfere with each other..
It remains to complete what we have begun and plant the bushes in the holes made in the previously designated places.
You can use either tall or medium bushes. But they will leave gaps at the bottom, and framing the path, interfere with free passage. The most profitable option is the undersized view.
Roses can be combined with other flowers
You can combine roses with any number of flowers
We come to the most interesting. Here you can combine all landscape design techniques, and turn your fantasies into life.
When composing a composition, it is necessary to take into account all the nuances. Let’s analyze what awaits us. In general, pay attention to:
- location (shade, light, humidity);
- the presence of a strictly developed layout;
- the number and type of roses;
- the presence of other plants;
- the compatibility of roses with other elements of the composition;
- ease of subsequent care.
So what do we mean? When using roses to compose a composition with inanimate elements, pay attention that the roots have enough room for development, also the convenience of watering, and whether any elements will not create an unfavorable atmosphere for plant growth (for example, a pond). When combining with other plants, be sure to ask if they will take root together.
As in the previous version, this one requires an exact plan, even more rigorous. The main element in the proposed compositions will be an inanimate object (fountain, pond), and roses serve as an arrangement, so you need to focus on it. Make all the necessary measurements, calculate the required amount of space and material, and also create an accurate drawing of the location of objects. To do this, it is better to invite a landscape designer, which will significantly reduce your work and time..
So, many housewives dream of their own “swan lake”. Why not? It is quite possible to create it in your own yard. Start with a pond. Make a good water supply and pumping system. We focus on the latter, since poor water circulation will lead to its bloom, the formation of an unpleasant odor.

It’s easy to create stunning landscaping with roses
The “savage” stone is better for framing the pond. He will give ease to the appearance. However, you can use any decorative stone..
Having done the main part, we proceed to the subsequent design. We organize the planting of roses. In accordance with the planned plan, we plant the plants in the appropriate order. It is better to plant them at a short distance around the pond, or make flower beds nearby. A bench is well suited for such a composition. It can also be decorated with roses, and make a path to it from the pond, covering it with fine gravel and planting undersized species along it.
The main detail in the next idea is the fountain. The first and second stages are the same. It is also necessary to draw a plan, and purchase a good system for the correct circulation of water in the fountain. Then complement the composition with roses..
You can also use a waterfall as a base – this combination will also be attractive. If you don’t want to deal with water, make a dry pond. This requires a frame made of any stone (as for a pond with water, only a low one). Fill the resulting shape with small pebbles, you can draw something inside by painting certain areas. To do this, use spray paint, or pre-soak groups of pebbles in another type of paint..
So, you can create any compositions using everything at hand.

Flowers and colors
When using roses in landscaping, they can be combined with other plants or non-living objects (as in the examples above). To do this correctly and safely for the plant, pay attention to the following factors:
- plant compatibility (the required amount of moisture, light, etc.);
- whether artificial blotches interfere with the normal growth of the flower;
- from an aesthetic point of view – color combinations.
These three factors are fundamental when arranging a garden and courtyard with roses. Be sure to follow their implementation..
Consider compatibility when selecting plants
The color of the plants must match with other colors.
