Which one, or two or three, should you select for your landscape?
Designing with Variegated Foliage
When you forget to put a focus on foliage, you may end up with a landscape void of interest during the “off season” or even barren if you choose too many deciduous plants. By adding a variety of plants with evergreen and interesting foliage, you can ensure your landscape will have color, texture and contrast through each growing season.
Is the heat already becoming quite intense in your part of the country? Are water restrictions putting a strain on landscapes in your area? When it comes to keeping landscapes looking their best under these conditions, choosing the right plants makes all the difference. With heat and drought tolerant plants, you can still create landscapes that are beautiful and easy to care for, while also reducing water needs. If you do your research you’ll find there are many varieties of plants that offer different degrees of drought tolerance that can brighten up low-maintenance landscapes.
When creating a cohesive design in the landscape it can be helpful to pick your color palette before you start. One way to create drama in the landscape is by using complementary colors. Complementary colors are opposite colors on the color wheel, such as blue & orange, purple & yellow, and red & green.
Succulents are all the craze these days, and for good reason: They offer interesting foliage colors and shapes and do so without using a lot of water. And while creating gardens using solely succulents is very on trend, simply mixing some succulents into a more traditional perennial planting can help modernize the landscape.
Add Garden WOW with Easy-to-Maintain Roses
Adding roses to your garden is a great way to enjoy colorful blooms for most of the growing season. Shrub roses are an incredibly versatile plant that can be used in foundation plantings, medians, perennial borders and even containers. When it comes to style, they are equally appropriate for both modern and traditional landscape designs.

March Landscape Checklist: Get ready for spring!
For those of us in mild climates, spring has already sprung! Fruit trees are blooming and shrubs have started to put out their new growth. For many, the last frost date has already passed you by, or is just around the corner. Weather is unpredictable, however, and a late cold snap can show up at just the wrong time. Be sure to keep frost cloth on hand to protect young seedlings, tender edibles or new plantings. Perennials will be emerging from dormancy, as will warm season lawns.
