Choosing the Best Time for Landscaping Plants
Generally spring is the best time to plant landscaping plants of all kinds, from trees to flowers. But there are many landscaping plants that you can continue to plant right through summer.
If you are starting from scratch, you need to decide exactly what landscaping plants you are going to include in your garden design. Remember that trees are considered the backbone of landscaping plants, because they are large and can have a lot of impact. So choose your trees carefully and plant them before planting any other new landscaping plants.
Although smaller than trees, shrubs are also vital landscaping plants because they add seasonal color with foliage, flowers and fruit. Like trees, shrubs form part of the structure of the garden and so should be positioned before you plant annuals and perennials, which are landscaping plants that have to be replaced every year or two.
Add smaller landscaping plants and flowers to complete the picture. Also, plan to add some hardscaping elements when landscaping plants. Consider plant and basket stands, floor planters, hanging baskets and trellises. Aside from landscaping plants, these elements will add style to your overall design.
