7 Must-Follow




Adding tropical plants to your own landscaping is a great way to bring some of those same “faraway” feelings right to the comfort of your own home.  Try planting some caladiums, also known as elephant’s ear, to add some showy foliage to your yard, or plant cannas for their jungle-like leaves and bright colors.


Blur the Lines Between Indoors and Outdoor

Many people are exploring the possibilities of “bringing the indoors out." By hopping on to this trend, you will be able to extend your living space and make use of your entire property. To bring the indoors out, screen areas using tall shrubs to create a sense of enclosure, or add string lights, outdoor lamps, and lanterns.


Create a Garden  for a Calmer Mind

If you would like to create a calming environment for yourself, be more intentional about what elements you are adding to your landscaping.  Include scented plants, or the sound of water with a fountain.  The trick is to pay attention to your own preferences to create a garden you love.


Maximize  Balconies  and Porches

If your “landscaping” is limited to  a small space such as a balcony  or porch, this trend is for you!  To spruce up your space, invest  in some large pots that can  handle multiple plants. This will help you to maximize the space you do have.


Garden  for Wildlife

Recently, gardeners are striving to make their gardens more  wildlife-friendly.  Rather than just placing a bird feeder in the middle of the yard many people are being more intentional about everything they do in their gardens. 



Design with  Dark Foliage

Dark foliage has become increasingly popular with gardeners, but why?  Dark foliage really helps bright flowers pop. The contrast between the light and dark makes for a beautiful landscaping scene.


Magnify  Color with  Bicolor Plant

To make your garden pop with color, fill an entire bed with bicolor flowers, or mix and match with other flowers and foliage.  You can get as creative as you would like. Bicolor flowers are perfect for giving your landscaping a special touch!
