All-year round conifers. All shapes, sizes, and colours
A couple of useful tips when starting a new garden:
If your budget allows…buy two or three Super-Advanced specimens to give focal points and draw the eye…
To give the illusion of a mature garden, use Potted Colour to fill the bare spots. Petunias in particular are good value because they can be harshly pruned before their initial flowering period has finished, and away they go again! Another flowering period…You could say two for the price of one!
A nice pool surround
Organise what your needs and wants are: Do you need a play area for your kids?
Are you after beauty or function. In other words, do you want your yard to
look pretty, or do you just want to grow vegetables? Do some rough sketches of possible Layouts…where you think everything should go. And then bounce ideas around with your family.
A mature back yard; good for a wander! …Hide & seek for the kids.
Sometimes it’s nice to have perfume in your garden, particularly near entries and exits. Consider flowering periods: Summer, Winter, All year. And don’t buy some cute little plant when you visit a nursery just because it has a pretty flower. That will only last three weeks or so…what about the rest of the year!
