The backyard is a space behind your home where function and beauty collides. If you wish to create an intimate outdoor sanctuary, using thoughtful landscape design with carefully selected plants is the key. Plants and foliage provide a subtle and more natural aesthetic appeal to your property than a traditional privacy fence. Before decorating your backyard with lush and organic plants, consider some of these unique ideas.
1. Evergreen Shrubs: Healthy evergreen shrubs can provide vibrant color to property lines all year round, making them the go-to options of many meticulous homeowners. This type of woody plant can be trimmed and planted in hedges according to your personal style and preference.
2. Evergreen and Flowering Shrubs: If you want to take evergreens up a notch, you can also decide to mix them with colorful flowering shrubs. This specific style of landscape will showcase a wonderful jolt of life and abundance of growth to your home. Moreover, a mix of shrubs that flower in cold and warm climates will have your yard bursting with color every season.
3. Holly Bushes: Hollies have short, prickly ends and can grow to about six feet tall. They have beautiful glossy leaves in colors such as blue-green and dark green. Holly bushes are best suited in well-drained, moderately acidic soil. While these flowering bushes are not guaranteed to keep a trespasser off your property, they are surely not comfortable to course through.
4 Boxwood Hedges: These hardy plants are specific types of evergreen shrubs; they are commonly used as property line dividers, all thanks to their thick foliage and the private outdoor living experience it can provide. Boxwood plants are often planted in elegant and formal landscapes.
