Selecting the Appropriate Plants for Your Garden
The weather has become nicer, and after a cold winter all you really want to do is liven up your yard with some landscaping plants. However, just one visit to your local garden center revealed to you that there are many choices, so you need some advice when it comes to choosing the right landscaping plants.
About Landscaping Plants
The first thing you need to think about is the effect that you want the landscaping plants to have. Do you want landscaping plants just for aesthetic purposes, or would you prefer to have landscaping plants that are more for privacy?
If you want landscaping plants that provide privacy, you need look no further than the ivy vine. If you are unfamiliar with the ivy vine, you have probably seen it in movies or in quaint cottage depictions. This vine is quite hardy and requires only a fence or the side of a house to climb up of.
The thing that you might have to consider is the rate at which the ivy plant grows. You see, when you first purchase the ivy plant at your local garden store, you will notice that it is relatively small.
However, you might find that over the course of a night the vine will have grown by several inches! Thus, keep this in mind, because otherwise the ivy will eventually completely cover over the area that it is placed upon.
If you would rather use flowers as landscaping plants, you have to consider the overall climate in which you live. Tropical flowers that you see in your garden store can only be placed outside if the climate is temperate throughout the year. Otherwise, they are meant as indoor plants.
Thus, if you live in a climate that had four definitive seasons, you should consider a flowering plant that is known to be quite hardy, and those generally are Impatiens or Chrysanthemums. Both flowers do require watering, but only every other day. They require a mix of sun and shade as well.
If you are hesitant about buying either of those kids of flowers, be aware of the fact that these flowers are available in a variety of different colors. If you would like more information about landscaping plants, be sure to ask for advice at your local garden center. You can also search the internet on reputable gardening websites. You are sure to find the right information about landscaping plants with the proper research.
