There are many ways to make your house and lawn turn into a
home. Every bit of careful touch you add will help your space
feel more personal and inviting for your friends and family.
a landscape architect, one of my favorite ways to improve the
look and feel of a home is through garden plants.
I love to encourage all of my clients to invest in some great
garden plants when they are at work creating a lawn or
renovating their lawn. I love garden plants for so many
reasons, but the obvious reason is that they are beautiful.
There is nothing better than spending time in a home and a
that is filled with uniqueness and beauty. Planting a wide
variety of garden plants is a great way to add much needed
beauty to the outside of a home. Even the most beautiful homes
can look mediocre when there isn't a great lawn and garden to
Another reason I encourage my clients to invest in garden
plants for their home is so that they will have a reason to
outside and work the land with their hands. I believe that
people take much more pride in land that they have to work to
cultivate. Our culture has lost something dear and precious
since we stopped being a farming culture, and planting even
most simple arrangement of garden plants can be a great way to
feel the pride of working the land again. Having to spend time
working with garden plants is also an easy and fun way to get
outside and get some exercise. Far too many people are stuck
their homes watching television or reading, and just getting
outside to tend garden plants can be a great way for them to
get more active.
If you're looking to add garden plants to your lawn, then I'd
suggest you grab a couple of easy to understand books on the
topic and soak up all the knowledge you can about how to
properly plant garden plants in your lawn. There is much to be
learned about gardening, and taking time to get even the most
basic knowledge will help you considerably when you are trying
to plant the best garden plants for you.
Get to a local gardening shop and see what garden plants will
go great in your lawn. And then begin the fun work of planting
them and tending to their growth.
