If you were not proud of the way your yard looked last year, there are many things you can do to help it look better this year. One of these things is by using landscaping. This can transform a boring yard into something beautiful. To get started, read the following information on what you can do.
Start with Bushes
Bushes planted in front of your home look nice and if taken care of the bushes will be healthy and grow well for many years to come. Some common bushes you will see in many yards include Yew, Juniper, Holly Forsythia, Daphne Azalea, hydrangea, and boxwood. Some of these bushes even provide you with beautiful flowers throughout the season, such as the hydrangea and Daphne Azalea.
Rose bushes also look nice planted in front of a home. Knock Out rose bushes are easy to grow and as long as the bush gets enough sun and water, they will grow well for you and produce beautiful red roses. The Roald Dahl is another type of rose bush that is easy to grow and produces beautiful peach colored roses. You do have to cut these bushes down in the late winter or you will have overgrown bushes in the spring and summer.
There are a wide variety of flowers you can use for your landscaping. Because each type of flower has different sun requirements, you have to determine where you want to plant flowers, and then determine how much sun this area receives each day. Most flowers are categorized by needing all sun, all shade, or part shade.
Consider if you want to plant only a few flowers, or if you want to create an entire flower garden. You can choose from annual flowers to perennials. Because perennials come back year after year, they can save you time and money. Annuals are not expensive and allow you to change your flowers out each year. You could choose to plant a mixture of annuals and perennials. A garden canter in your area will have the flowers that grow well in your area. Tell them how much sun the area where you are planting your flowers are, and they can help you choose what would grow best for you.
