Solitaires in landscape design: how to decorate your garden with just one tree or bush?

The tapeworm (Latin solitarius) in landscape design is a separately located tree, shrub or flowers on a long stem or tall grass. Such details in the garden immediately attract attention because of their isolation.

For solitaire, it is better to use decorative photophilous plants, as they will create an emphasis on the open area.

If a tree is used for a single planting, then its crown will grow in width, because it does not need to fight for sunlight.

The main task of the solitaire is to attract attention and dominate the composition.

In the XIX century, they began to use a special technique for decorative tapeworms. Several trees were planted at the closest possible distance from each other. Over the years, they formed a “bouquet”, growing together with trunks.
