Help on designing with bulbs.
This a question more about general concepts rather than specific to lot pictures. I have a large yard and I bought a bunch of bulbs to put in. The area I was going to put them in is now the subject of a lawsuit, so I don't want to plant them there. I already have some bulbs in, but they never give me the pop I want. I saw a picture of a garden last year that had pools of different spring bulbs, but somehow it all looked cohesive even though none of the other perennials were up yet. I don't want mine to look patchy. I know you plant in uneven numbers, but what about the general design? Should I plant just one big patch of daffs and then another of something else? How far away should each pool be before they start looking unrelated? Should I try to balance the yard with some of each kind in each space or should I have one side of the yard daffs and another tulips and another alliums etc? I think I've figured out that the pics that appeal to me are one kind of bulb, not mixed up together. It's big and I will be adding more other years, but I want these ones to look good on their on. Any bulb design hints appreciated.
