Choosing The Right Landscaping Plants For Your Yards
When chosen correctly, landscaping plants can accentuate your home, hide problem areas and add value to your property. Because landscaping plants represent a significant investment of time and money, installing the appropriate plants avoids future headaches. There are only a few key factors that need to be considered when choosing which plant to use in your landscaping project. Here are some of them. Different landscaping plants require different amounts of sun. Some prefer direct sun such as cacti, while others prefer a more diffused sun to grow, such as moss. So choosing the right plant for your area starts with know what kind of sunlight the area gets. Space is another consideration. You would not want to plant a redwood under an awning because in a few years a saw blade will visit either the awning or the tree. So take the space available into serious consideration.
Then, no matter where you live perennial plants will be thriving in the spring and summer and dead ugly in the winter. Take this factor into consideration, perhaps intermixing some form of evergreen plants into your design would help to create a landscape that will look fresh year round. Try as we might some landscaping plants will simply not grow in certain areas. A solid design would be better focused on choosing landscaping plants that are indigenous to your area that can thrive in your weather.
