A properly designed flower bed will not only create a focal point of your home’s exterior, but it can also give purpose to unused space, improve your curb’s appeal, and reduce the amount of grass you mow weekly. However, there is no one-fits-all way to landscape a flowerbed. Your flower bed can take any design and shape as well as include all types of small and large flowers.
Therefore, when landscaping your flower garden, you should pick a design that complements other outdoor features and use plants that quickly adapt to your area’s climate. However, if you’re unsure how to landscape a flowerbed, count on our professionals at Premier Oaks Landscape Management for help.
We offer a complete range of landscaping solutions to ensure your garden provides unmatched beauty all year-round. Here is how we can help:
1. Landscape a Flowerbed
The first thing to consider when landscaping a flowerbed is location. Your location should showcase the placement of plants of all sizes from the perspective you want them to be viewed.
Remember that your site also affects the growing conditions of your plants. At Premier Oaks, we offer various flowerbed design plans ranging from simple layouts to more elaborate designs to suit every landscaping need.
2. Do a Practice Run
After designing your landscape, you should probably consider a practice run placing the flowers in groupings around your garden. Be sure to use different combinations of plants that showcase the diversity and beauty of the plant kingdom. Plus, you should set the plants in a way that they complement each other rather than compete.
How you arrange the plants will depend on the design and structure of your flowerbed. For example, tall plants should be placed at the back of the garden adjacent to a structure. On the other hand, island flowerbeds or circular gardens will look fantastic with taller plants in the center.
3. Create an All-season Garden
When designing a flowerbed, creating a year-round garden that provides the colors and beauty you need throughout the year is essential. Keep in mind that various plants flower at varying times of the year and have varying growth habits, depending on where you live.
That explains why you should choose plants that easily adapt to your area. The secret to a successful all-season garden is to know what plants do well in your area and select at least two different species that will flower simultaneously during each season.
Plant suggestions for all-season gardens are:
● Spring Plants – Crocus, Pansy, Snowdrop, Tulip, Peony, and Daffodil
● Summer Plants – Coneflower, Zinnia, Black-eyed Susan, Daylily, Rose, Hydrangea, Guara, Beebalm, and Nasturtium
● Fall Plants – Mums, Asters, Sedum, Flowering cabbage, Ornamental kale, and Hardy begonias
● Winter Plants – Camellia, Firethorn, Chokeberry, Hollies, Snowdrops, and Hellebores
