In fact, this is not a problem, as most people think. Buying or inheriting a L-shaped section, round or with a generally broken perimeter, many are horrified, because the standard for us is a square or rectangular piece of land. By and large, there is practically no difference in the planning of buildings, plantings and other elements in the landscape, you only need to take into account some features of the territory and correctly assess the situation.

Today will give some tips on where to start planning the site of irregular shape.

Land Size

In this case, size matters. The larger the territory, the more space for the flight of thought, the more space for home, garden, garden. But, accordingly, there are more expenses, both initial, for arrangement, and for subsequent maintenance. But today we will not talk about the financial situation, capital and budgets, but only about what is really necessary in the case of a complex layout.

A large plot will provide an opportunity to choose a place for everything. The main thing is to decide on the main buildings and plantings. Other landscape plays only a decorative role. It can be embankments, lawns, alleys, if, of course, there is a place for this all.

If the territory is small, and even of irregular shape, working with it is a little more difficult, but only in terms of placement of buildings. Additional questions may arise if the site is problematic.

First of all, the size determines the purpose of the area. This can be a six-hundred-year-old cottage for growing cucumbers and tomatoes, or a cottage of 20 acres, where you can build, create a recreation area, establish a pool, plant a small garden and even make a sports ground for children.

Land quality

The worst approach is to lay out the problem and low-quality allotment, it is much more difficult than working with irregular shapes. If you even have a snake-like area (it happens sometimes), you only need to decide on the main buildings, everything else can be planted just around the perimeter, leaving inside a maximum of free area for architecture and landscape objects. But if a poor terrain, soil, ditches and ditches got into the load of an irregular shape, it will take a long time to work.

Let's just go around the site, evaluate its quality and set:

  • How difficult the terrain is on the site;
  • Are there pits, ditches, cliffs;
  • How many thorns and weeds;
  • What level differences, do heights coincide;
  • Are there buildings, trees, shrubs on the site;
  • What a distance from a forest or reservoir, what unexpected living creatures can be found here - snakes, toads, wild animals.

This is not horror stories, but a standard visual check, which often reveals something that you have never seen in the country. But let's not scare you anymore, because we hope that the biggest trouble is difficulties with an irregular shape.

The relief of the site with an irregular shape

The relief of the territory can not only say a lot, but also give the opportunity to choose between a wide variety of designs:

  • Flat ground - a classic, the standard of our time. It is easy to build, plant, create something interesting in terms of stylization;
  • The territory with slopes is a little more problematic, because the slopes cause problems with water, and not only spring gatherings, but also with groundwater, which can be very insidious;
  • The relief allotment is a real problem, and here you may need geoplasty, alignment, dumping. Sometimes, it happens the other way around, and summer residents from flat areas form hills and slopes, but only when the main buildings are already in place.

It must be remembered that leveling the site can lead to serious delays in construction, and therefore evaluate the terrain in the first place.

The main thing is that the terrain is not steep, this will create additional difficulties. The most difficult will be the leveling process, although a good project can be built on serious slopes.

Soil and its quality

We are a little distracted from the main topic, but the quality of the soil is no less important for the site than the shape of its borders. And not only for planting, but also for the format development of land allotment. After all, it depends on the quality of the soil and the type of soil what and how it will be possible to build here, whether it will be necessary to choose a strip or pile foundation, which house to build - light frame or heavy stone, and so on.

Layout and design of the irregularly shaped area

The non-standard form of the territory leads us to reflect on how to get out of such a difficult situation. But if the site is not problematic, with good soil and tolerable terrain, in fact, there are no difficulties at all. You only need to work with imagination and good projects.

Home construction

Regardless of the form of land allotment, construction always begins with a residential building. It is under it, taking into account all the features of your land, that a high-quality project is created. It is advisable to do this not on their own, but through design organizations, or invite experts from developers to assess the possibility of building experts.

Round construction

Going away from stereotypes and far-fetchedness, we want to express the opinion that to build a house in this case exactly in the center is wrong. You need to shift the construction point to any border, and do it in such a way that the building’s facade is in contact with the center, for example, it passes along a diametrical line.

Country house on the L-shaped plot

And there are no difficulties, only the correct placement of the main suburban building. Initially, it is worth calculating all the dimensions of the site - length, width, angle, and also be sure to relate all the data received to the future project. Rather, the project for the construction of a house must necessarily take into account dimensional features. Most often in this case, the dwelling is built in a shorter and wider branch.

How to build a house on a U-shaped plot

Such a territory is a real rarity, but in some cooperatives or cottage villages, a non-standard is practiced, which is very inconvenient for the owners. There is nothing left to do, how to determine your country house on the upper part, that is, on the jumper of the letter “P”. Narrow and elongated branches will serve as a place for the development of the landscape.

We build on a plot of irregular shape

Irregular forms of the territory are also rarely found, however they are quite real, there are even allotments in the form of stars!

Obtaining such land forms in possession, you can even be horrified at first, but the main thing is not to panic. It is only necessary to compare the project of the house in advance with the dimensions and other parameters of the land for development, always relying on the data of the plan and the technical passport.

Farm buildings and small architectural forms

This list may include several dozen buildings and structures of various types and purposes, and therefore we offer to focus only on the main ones, which are most often found in cottages:

  • Garage, barn, hangar and storage. These buildings are about the same format, and occupy an area of ​​up to 20 square meters. This is a large building for a small plot of land, but quite standard for medium or large. If the format of the site allows, place the buildings in the place where they are most convenient: a garage in the form of an extension of the house, a barn at a distance, in the backyard, a hangar and a storage near the garden, in a hidden zone. If there is no place for such structures, their format and size can be changed, or one structure can be replaced by another, for example, to make a storage cellar in a garage or to combine a hangar and a barn;
  • Pergolas and other facilities for recreation. Our site has a special section that describes the gazebos, building materials and the construction processes themselves. And therefore, simply by reading several useful articles, you can easily decide on a gazebo for your site. The problem can only be accommodation, and then, if there is not enough space. But in this case, you can always find a way out of the situation by replacing the gazebo with a convenient extension to the country house, where a place for relaxation will be organized. It can be a small canopy, a comfortable terrace or even a patio, which we also recommend reading about;
  • Small architectural forms in the country. This list includes arches, pergolas, bridges, small waterworks, and this particular set can become a way out of the situation with a non-standard site. Having planned the construction of the main buildings, you can turn to just such elements, because they help complement your chosen style and fill in the gaps of the site. Therefore, be sure to study the recommended items!

For construction, we can add that it is very nice to hide all defects of the embankment area, rocky placers, alpine hills, grass lawns after format geoplasty, or more noticeable structures for styling the landscape - retaining walls, gabion structures, vertical flower beds.

Landscaping of a non-standard summer cottage

It is very easy to cope with landscape design if all the buildings are already located on the territory. But this task becomes even easier and more interesting if you first draw up a general plan.

We want to remind each reader of this article that if you got a non-standard cottage allotment, you need to deal with it in a comprehensive manner. You can’t just build a house, and then organize lawns and gardens around it. Everything should be harmonious, and therefore it is worth starting with a design project, preferably from a professional studio. If not, on our site you can always read about programs for landscape design, and start planning.

Landscaping is not just about planting a lawn and finding a place under the gazebo. This is a serious work on stylization, necessarily comprehensive, taking into account all the requirements of a deliberately drawn up plan and the style you have chosen.

In this process, you will need a professional project, with the placement and dimensions of absolutely everything, 3D visualization is desirable, as well as a preliminary estimate. It is very important to study the problems of the site in advance, because it is quite realistic that you will need geoplastics, filling, leveling, but we already spoke about this.

It remains only to determine the plants - trees, shrubs and flowers, which we suggest you find information on our website. We offer many interesting articles on plant agricultural technology, their location, planting conditions, harvesting and storage.

Territory fencing

The device of the fence must be included in the general plan. It is quite realistic that this will be done initially, but it may also be that it is with a fence that you will put an end to the layout and arrangement of the site.

Choose a fence or a more serious fence to give according to your own requirements, but do not forget about quality and reliability. It is also very important that the fence impresses the general format!

“Connection” of a non-standard site

We mean communications that activate the civilization of the site and its convenience. It is likely that sewage, water, gas, heating and electricity have already been established on the site, but if not, it will need to be done independently.

It’s been a long time to talk about each process, especially since there are already thematic articles on these topics. We recommend that you find them through the Search on the site and get useful information.

The most important thing here is to correctly conduct engineering communications on a non-standard site so that they work correctly, but do not interfere with the construction and simply use of the cottage. Therefore, be sure to pay attention to the requirements of communications, and also write them in the project before starting work.

You can talk for a long time on the arrangement of an irregular or non-standard form, and discuss the placement of a shower, barbecue or even a septic tank. But the main thing to understand is that any construction and even a minimal detail must be worked out in advance, because only then a high-quality layout is possible!

Layout of a site of a non-standard form is not a problem if you are ready to approach the issue calmly and with a lot of interesting ideas. And therefore, act consistently, and you will definitely get a great summer house!
