plant design

    Determining a plan for your home's landscape can be a difficult task. There are many key factors that contribute to a precisely designed landscape plan. A professionally designed plant layout can bring out the features of your home while also adding an array of different colors, textures and best of all, scents. When preparing for a plant design - budget, ease of care, compatibility with neighboring plants, sunlight requirements, aesthetics and size all come into play. When selecting plants with a well laid out design plan, you can hone in on what is most important to your individual landscape wants and needs.

SELECTING PLANTS WITH PURPOSE

Plants are a long term investment – When it comes to plants, you get what you pay for. The difference between a professional nursery's plants and a big box store plants comes down to how the plants were taken care of from the initial sprout until planted at your property. While one has been cared for by trained professionals that knows the wants and needs of individual plants, the other option has been trucked across the country to sit in a parking lot getting “taken care of” by hired summer help.

Food for the nose – Aroma is food for the nose. The average person takes 23,000 breaths per day with the scents contained in each breath conveying information, influencing mood and provoking memories in a way nothing else can.

Birds – Berry-bearing trees and shrubs attract a host of birds in the fall such as robins, bluebirds, thrushes, cardinals, finches and waxwings. Many plants produce fruit or seed in late summer to fall when birds are getting ready to migrate south, adding interest to the landscape while nourishing our feathered friends.

Butterflies - The brief joy of a butterfly encounter is well worth the effort to plant a garden dedicated to attracting these lovely pollinators. So if you have a sunny open spot, some shelter from wind, and freshwater (they like shallow puddles), then plant some butterfly flowers and sit down quietly to enjoy a bit of happiness.

Remember the pollinators - A garden is a complex, natural world that we often overlook, but has a large impact on our everyday world. While we are admiring the color, fragrance and look of a glorious landscape, bees are tirelessly pollinating our plants. Global evidence suggests that pollinator populations are declining due to many factors, including habitat destruction, so please consider making your garden a haven for these amazing creatures.
