So if you guys don’t know, i have been doing a no terraforming island here on my second island, which is bergonia and the biggest issue i’ve been having is filling in space without terraforming. I feel like, for the longest time i’ve used terraforming as kind of a crutch to just fill empty space when i don’t have any ideas for what to do so. I’M gon na go over the three easiest ways that i’ve found to fill space. So, if you’re planning on doing a no terraforming island or if you just don’t, want to do a lot of terraforming on your island, you can use these easy ways to fill some space in your island first things.
First, i want to talk about this entrance. A little bit because the first thing is using buildings. That may seem obvious, but one thing i did when i was laying out my map here was: i did try to spread things out for the most part. I do have one more house that’s on the beach that i haven’t placed yet, but i tried to spread the buildings out so that i could use the buildings for height on the island because that’s one thing with terraforming you’re not able to create any height and Height is something that really gives an area interest so using the buildings to create that height is an easy way to just add interest to an area. If i wanted to fill up even more space, i could spread these buildings out even more but i’m, going to use some other techniques and design ideas to fill up the other empty spaces. On my island. The next one i want to talk about is probably my favorite, and it is flowers. This area is not complete yet, but this is kind of the general idea of what i want to be doing over here i’m, going to be filling this entire area with tulips. Once it’s full of tulips, then i’m going to go in and kind of dig up a few here and there add some weeds add a few different little items to kind of break it up a little bit, but just having this entire field of flowers is really Filling up a lot of space without having to do too much in terms of design.
I really like the way it looks. I especially like these tulips in the fall. I think they look really pretty, but you could choose any flower that you want and honestly this is not going to be the only area that i do something like this i’m also going to incorporate a lot of different gardens on this island as well. I feel like gardens are a great way of incorporating, maybe flowers that you wouldn’t use all around the island. Maybe you want to pop a color somewhere, so you can just create a garden with a ton of flowers of whatever color you want to and because it’s a garden, it just makes sense that it’s, not a flower, that doesn’t match the rest of your island. So i would say: flowers are probably one of the easiest ways to fill space now the issue with flowers is, they don’t, add a lot of height. So that is why i added these wind turbines in here. I do have some trees mixed in as well. Just to vary the heights a little bit, but i do really love the way. It looks. Okay, so coming over this way, this path leads into the museum. I obviously have a ton of work left to do on this island, but i do have this big open space right here that for right now, i don’t have any ideas for what i’m gon na do with it. Another thing i like to do is fill up empty space and then, if i have an idea later, i can always go back and take these things out.
Maybe i come up with some great idea for this area right here. I would just dig up all the flowers and put it over here instead of this, but for over here i also don’t have any plans for this area right here. So the next thing i’m going to do is fill this area with trees and i’m going to use varying heights of trees as well. Just so they’re, not all the same size. Making a forest is definitely one of the easiest ways to fill space. It also just looks really nice and lush. I love the way that it looks so i’m gon na go in here i’m gon na kind of fill up this space and then i’ll show you what it looks like when i’m done: Music, Music. Okay. So this is the general idea. I’Ve got a really foresty area right here with this path just winding through honestly, i would probably play around just a little bit more. Maybe move some trees closer together, just get them as close as possible, so it’s really even more lush than it looks right now, but i like the effect, i would also add some flowers and weeds kind of interspersed between the trees, but just another easy way. I filled a ton of space very quickly, just scattering different trees of different heights. Different types also helps to add some visual interest. I may switch out the cedar right here and this hardwood just so these two aren’t so close together, but super easy to do, and those have been the three easiest ways that i found to fill space on.
A no terraforming island they’re easy to use easy to get, and also it doesn’t take a ton of time. So i would love to know what you guys think of these ideas, if you’re already using them on your island or, if you plan to do this as well, leave it down in the comments below.
