Plants are an essential addition to any home. In addition to improving air quality, they also add to the aesthetics of your home’s landscape.
However, you can’t grow just any plant, and you definitely can’t plant them anywhere.
For healthy growth and increased beauty in your landscape, it’s essential to consider the following factors when planning your garden.
- Your environment
Your environment is a crucial aspect when it comes to gardening. Before you consider purchasing plants, it’s a good idea to fully know and understand the types that do well in your environment.
Know the soil type, climate, and other environmental factors affecting certain plant growths.
- Plant size
Not all plants grow to the same height or shape. So, before you choose any plants, please find out how big or how tall these plants thrive when they are fully matured.
You don’t want plants overgrowing to areas you never intended for them to be in; for example, a tree whose roots extensively spread can damage your home’s foundation.
- Flowering time
Who doesn’t like the aesthetic appeal of flowers in full bloom?
It’s essential to plant flowering plants at their best, to have beautiful flowers. Meaning you need a plant calendar to guide you on when to plant flowers that bloom in spring and those that bloom in summer.
- Garden maintenance
It’s essential to consider how much water the plants need, the sunlight, when to prune, and what to do to prevent disease and parasites attack.
If you’re not up for these tasks, you can go for low-maintenance plants, which of course, still need maintenance, but as much.
When considering plants for your garden, all these factors come into play.
