There are many challenges in today’s landscaping projects: smaller yards, tighter living areas, and soil condition just to name a few. Along with challenges come advances and solutions. A smaller yard means a smaller project, unless you consider the many climbing plants or adding potted plants to a porch or deck area.
There is also the possibility of extending the garden indoors with house plants. Soil conditions can be improved easily by using a nice enriched planting soil or potting soil which can be purchased at any home and garden store.
If you are fortunate enough to have a large yard then landscaping takes on a whole new meaning for you. Different landscaping choices include: plants, rocks, benches, borders or walls, ponds, waterfalls, fish or pottery.
There is a wide range of plants that can be utilized in your garden. Trees, bushes, ivy and ornamental grasses are nice for greenery. Of course there are also flowering trees, bushes and ivy to consider. Roses are a beautiful choice for different heights in a garden, for instance climbing roses are nice for trellises and rose trees or bushes can also be used for different height levels. If climbing plants are an interest of yours there is a variety to choose from. As mentioned, climbing roses are great; there is also clematis, morning glory and moon flowers to consider.
If your dream is to have a pond or waterfall as a landscaping element you can add aquatic plants and fish easily. There are ready-made kits available to make a pond an easy project. Good light exposure is important – five to six hours a day will widen the choices of available plants you can use. Be careful in the amount of plants and fish that you use, both plants and fish need enough space to thrive. One of the most important aspects in landscaping is that you enjoy what you are doing and what you end up with. A decorative bistro set or bench would be a great addition so you can spend hours enjoying your creation.
