Savor the beauty
There may be no better way to capture the overall beauty of your backyard than with carefully selected flowers and plants that can help to solidify your overall design and create a haven where you will want to spend hours with your family and friends. Savor the beauty of your flower garden by turning it into more than just a plot of land with a flower planted in it. Use your flower garden to incorporate all of the important elements of your yard so that instead of creating just one little space of beauty, you'll have an entire yard that heralds relaxation and enjoyment.
Instant Flower Gardens
Instant flower gardens can be created when you simply place a few favorite flowers together on a small patch of land. You do not need to landscape your entire yard all at once to create a little bit of beauty. If you spend a lot of time on your back patio and there is some room to plant flowers, you can get the effect of an instant flower garden simply by digging a few holes nearby and placing in the plants that you most enjoy. Later on, when you incorporate other areas of your yard into the quick design your have started, you'll find that it's easier to match up the newer plants with the older ones, and envision the overall picture of your garden.
Perennial Flower Gardens
Perennial flower gardens are especially fun to plan and put into place in your backyard. With a perennial flower garden, you are choosing plants and flowers that will grow season after season. You will be making a great investment in the future of your garden by planting plants that will continue to grace it year after year.
There are many types of perennial flower gardens that you can create. Some will need to be planted in the fall, by carefully placing the bulbs in your flower beds and waiting for them to come up in the spring. Others can be planted as live plants during the spring and summer months, but will leave behind a bulb that will continue to bloom over the passing years. Lastly, remember to choose some different design elements to offset your perennial flower garden.
Texas Flower Gardens
Texas flower gardens typically include plants that are hearty enough to withstand the soil and weather that can affect Texan backyards. This means that the plants will typically require less water and less upkeep but may be very large. Another option to consider is a wildflower garden. With wild flower gardens, you can simply choose the colors and varieties of wildflowers that you enjoy and spread them through your yard without any expansively planned design. You will get many hours of enjoyment from the resulting collection of wild flowers that will last throughout the summer.
