Choosing the right plants for your landscaping project is
one of the most important aspects of landscaping. First of
all, the plants are the ones which people will see
immediately so their impression of your lawn will depend
much on how you choose your plants.
Below is a list of some tips on choosing the right kind of
plants for your lawn.
1. Know thy plants
- being familiar with the plants that you are planning to
grow in your lawn is important because it will immediately
tell you whether or not they will grow in your area.
Aside from that, it also tells you how large it will grow
(which is important when you have a small lawn) and how
much care you would give to it.
2. Choose your color combination
- ugly lawns are those with terrible color combinations.
You should therefore be mindful of the plants or the
flowers’ colors before you even buy them. Otherwise, you’d
be in for a disaster.
3. How well can you maintain them?
- this is another important consideration when choosing a
plant for your lawn. There are plants that need extra care
and attention while others can grow with little
4. Use local plants when possible.
This saves on the water that we use in the yard. They can
withstand the temperature changes of your area. They grow
well in the soil type that you have.
If you’re the busy type, you might want to opt for the
low-maintenance plants. On the other hand, if you have
extra time or are considering getting the services of a
gardener, then opt for those that require a little more
effort from you. What’s important is that you have a plant
that you can maintain.
