The picture of a front yard rose garden above is a wonderful example how roses enhances the curb appeal of a home. This charming garden is in my neighborhood and I always enjoy taking in the view whenever I go by.

I just adore this front cottage garden with roses. The red climbing rose by the window is Altissimo, a wonderful red climber that was just recently planted.

Next spring the roof above the window will be loaded with red flowers spilling over. I will post a new picture next spring.

Just behind the picket fence are pink Bonica roses, and further back, the white 'Fabulous' rose with dwarf boxwoods lining the brick walkway. The Golden Shower rose is climbing the fence.

This is a very charming idea for a rose garden.

The picture above is a courtyard garden design with roses, perennials and bearded irises. The red roses are Knockout's and the apricot-pink roses are Just Joey. These roses are ideal for this planting situation, because they are rather compact and don't take up a lot of room. The fountain is the focal point in this charming and attractive rose garden.

Rose Garden Design

Before you plan the design for your rose garden , use the following design criteria

to make it easier to select your roses and improve and beautify your garden.

a wall of climbing roses

Here is a stunning example of a garden design using multiple colors of climbing roses to create a 'Wall of Roses'.

When planning a rose garden use scaled graph paper (1/4 inch grid is good).

You can find scaled graph paper at any art supply or craft store.

Rose garden planning is a very important step, in achiving the great look you want.

a flower border

Roses and Flowers look best with a border. Here English Ivy is used as a clipped curved border, adding a touch of elegance to this garden.

Choosing roses that are adaptable to your climate should be your most important consideration.

Select easy to grow, Award-Winning roses from my recommended list of roses, or consult your local favorite nursery.

When planting roses in flower borders and creating a rose garden design, choose the rose companion plants that require similar growing conditions.


Decorate Your Garden With Roses!

Use a harmonious color scheme, when choosing colors of roses and other plants.

Select the colors you like the best and that go well together.

Think of roses as decorative accents and use them as focal points in your garden.

Try to create separate areas and use roses as centerpieces.

Enjoy the beauty of your roses! Consider locating your rose garden to where you can see it and enjoy the fragrance from a patio or deck

When designing your rose garden, you should also consider the location of your windows.

You want to be able to look out a window and enjoy the spectacular show of your roses in full bloom.

rose arches

Rose wrapped Arches, a stunning way to use roses in the garden

Another beautiful way to grow roses, and a great idea for a rose garden design, is to create arches of climbing roses that could frame different areas of your garden.

Simply use bendable steel rods to form an arch; then wind and tie the rose canes around the rod.

I promise, this is a very stunning way to show off roses, and my own favorite.
