Our landscaping company works on several home each year with large mulched flower beds and landscaping areas. What floors us each and every year is the poor choice many homeowners make when selecting mulch color, and the appropriate landscape lighting color to compliment the mulch. People seem to always manage to get this wrong and end up with a colorful mess on their hands.
It can help if you mulch or add composting material to your plant beds or trees with 3″ of organic material – it can help conserve water, it will discourage weeds from growing and it adds humus to your garden or plants. It also creates a nice, neat appearance to your flower beds and around trees.
The gardens of today are at time functional and at times ornamental. Horticulturists use cultivation of these herbs to design their flower beds. Nowadays, people are encouraged to use alternate medicine from herbs and to grow them on their own instead of purchasing them from markets. Herb gardens let people use fresh herbs for medicinal purposes. There is not much trouble involved in this and they just need a little care in order to thrive.
Brunnera macrophylla ‘Looking Glass’ has heart shaped leaves that cup downward and are a rather solid silver in color. I have ordered 25 for my own gardens for this coming spring.
Before you do any online research and find yourself drooling at the remarkably low prices on some landscape lighting kits, you should know that there are good reasons for those low numbers. The saying goes, “you get what you pay for” and, to some extent, that’s true here. That isn’t to say that kits are bad ideas. Just that you should know what you’re getting before you buy. Let’s break down the good and the bad.
