You are a unique individual, so why should your home landscaping blend in with your neighbors? Getting creative with your landscaping can help set your home apart from the rest, making it look beautiful and give it character. If you’re looking for ways to spice up your landscaping, here are five great ideas that are sure to transform your home.
Bring In Easy Plants
While succulents, air plants, and cacti might not be first in your thought when it comes to your Potomac landscape, these unique plants can make a statement. Air plants, in particular, are a great way to add a unique look to your design, because they do not need soil you can arrange them in unique ways. Air plants strung on fishing wire, for instance, can create the illusion that they’re floating in mid-air.
Add Statement Flowers
One of the best ways to add color and dimension to your landscape is through using unusual flowers. Giant teddy bear sunflowers, massive purple allium, cascading clematis, and vibrant crepe myrtles are all great ways to add color, texture, and dimension into your plans.
Build On a Slope
If you live on a hill or have any particularly steep sections, a graduated garden bed can help to create the illusion of more space while making more area for plants to be successfully planted.
Using narrow, hung planters, you can make any sunny space on the sides of your home verdant with greenery. Vertical growing up the side of your home is a great way to take advantage of rain runoff from your drain pipes.
Think Outside the Lawn
Rather than keeping your flower beds in rectangular or oval shapes, why not try a patterned or unusual line? If the edges are kept narrow, you will not be making yourself do any more trimming than you usually would.
