When you are deciding on your landscaping design you have several things to think about and take into account: how much light these plants will be exposed to, the amount of water and maintenance they require, added costs and seasons. Not all of us are as lucky as to live in Miami where the temperature is consistently warm year-round. For this reason, if you want to make the best of your yard and have it looking plush and vibrant you will have to do some planning. However, we still want a design that is relatively easy to maintain but looks amazing. Because of that we have put together a guide for you with the best plants for each season.
We all know what spring means: flowers! This is your time to make your yard as colorful and vibrant as possible with all kinds of flowers and trees. Not only this will look beautiful, but it will, for sure, lift up your mood and make you feel happy and invigorated. Now let’s look at a few options for spring.
Crocus are beautiful purple flowers that serve as a symbol of youthfulness. They have to be planted in the fall so you get them very early in the spring. In fact, these beautiful, yet strong, flowers usually bloom through the snow. These need well drained soil in a partial or full sun exposure spot.
Same as with crocus, they have to be planted in the fall so you can see them bloom in the spring. They have beautiful yellow flowers that represent happiness, hope, rebirth and new beginnings.
The hottest days of summer can make your plants scorch, brown and become droopy. Yet, beautiful, colorful flowers with enticing aromas and bold shapes and patterns just make everything better. For this reason, you want to make sure you choose the right plants that will withstand the hottest, sunniest days of the year.
