Plants, Plants All Around But Which Is Best for Me: Landscaping Plants Galore

Aug 17, 2007
One of the major aspects of landscaping is, of course, the type of flora that you place around your soon to be magnificent yard. A variety of choices exist for just about every taste and every possible desire and every location around the world in terms what kind of landscaping plants that you want to put in your yard. The question simply stands as to what works for you, what you want out of your landscaping plants, and what you want your yard to represent in the end.

What Kinds Of Landscaping Plants Are There?

There are tons of different kinds of landscaping plants out there and what you chose has a great deal to do with kind of landscaping that you want to do. If you want a more traditional flower bed, then there are the ever-popular roses, as well as Tulips, mums, daisies, lilly of the valley, among a multitude of other various colored flowers. This is more of a classic looking landscaping plant, and most likely goes with those homes that have a more rustic, old aged look to them. It reflects well in the plants themselves.

Next, we have the very popular variety of shrubs for our landscaping plants. A shrub is a woody plant that is shorter than a tree that has permanent stems coming out of the trunk close to the ground. A variety of conifers are often used as a tasteful shrubby accent to a home, but typically to those homes farther north as the charms of the conifer become even more apparent in the winter with the snows that pile so endearingly on the needs of the trees.

Other shrubs, which are more perennials, tend not to look nearly as pretty in the winter time in those climates that have drastic season changes because, in the winter, they hibernate and tend to look pretty dead and not very appealing to the eye. So the south tends to have better luck with the perennial shrubs while the north does better with the conifers.

Another thing to consider is the impression that you want to give your landscaping project from the plants. For example, in a southern plantation setting, a weeping willow tree can drastically add to the overall quality of any landscaping plant that you there, while in the north, a maple in the front yard gives the whole experience a farmhouse rustic feeling.
