Shrubs and perennials planted in combination is a great way to enhance your landscape. Shrubs can add texture and depth to any space. There are many choices from evergreens to deciduous to flowering types. When planted in combination with perennials a mixed plant bed can add color and drama to your landscape.
A mixed plant bed can be used in the landscape in a variety of ways; they can be used as foundation plantings to create depth or variety around your house, they can be used as focal points to draw attention to certain aspects of your landscape like a patio or pond, they can also be used as screening or privacy.
When deciding to add a combination plant bed to your space, stop and ask yourself a few questions to get started.
- How large is the space?
- Is the proposed planting area in the shade or sun?
- What affect are you trying to achieve?
- Attracting butterflies, an attractive focal point, screening, color?
