Trees and Gardens: What You Should Know When Landscaping
Trees and Gardens
If you are landscaping your outdoor space, you are likely adding a variety of trees, plants, grasses and gardens to your space. Each of these items can add something to the space, such as a new texture, height or look. Unfortunately though, many people do not have the first idea as to how to pick trees or plants for their space.
When selecting trees for your yard, you will want to consider how much maintenance and care a tree needs, how tall of a tree you want, and whether you want any colors or flowers on the tree.
When deciding what to grow in your garden, you should weigh the pros and cons of different types of gar-dens. Flower gardens are very different to care for compared to herb gardens. And vegetable gardens will give you a food to eat, which is something that a flower garden can’t deliver on. Weighing these pros and cons can help give you an idea as to what type of garden to plant.
In addition to selecting the right types of trees and plants, you will have to figure out how to space these items out in your yard. Planting a tree too close to a garden can be disastrous, as they will both compete for water and soil nutrients. The roots can also grow right into your garden, uprooting those plants.
Taking the time to learn about different aspects of landscaping before you begin your project can help en-sure each plant you place thrives in its new environment.
