Landscape Design Ideas for Annual Parties

15 Mar

If you are most Greensboro homeowners and host a few annual parties each year, plan your landscape to look its best for these events. Trees, shrubs, perennials, vines, annuals can be installed within your landscape for optimal blooming, impressing family and friends of your keen sense of planning.

When consulting with new clients, the question of ,”when do you host annual parties?” is asked. Most would like color year round and this can also be achieved, but the best landscape display should present itself when family and friends experience your landscape (looks great in photographs too).

Landscape Designs should not only be impressive with flowers, but also berries, fruits and leaf color. Sometimes nature provides us with design elements we can move around when little is happening in the landscape. Fallen leaves or pine cones can be moved to create a walking path or to line an existing walkway on both sides. Children love to help with this.

 Sticks or tomato stakes and branches can be used in the winter months to create small vignettes to hang seasonal decorations.

Upside down tomato cages can be anchored along a path and the possibilities are endless

Plan you landscape around your yearly parties and have a great new year

Happy Planting!

    I am really impressed with the wayyou will reconfigure your are for different seasons. I know only a few others who will actually do this. Keep up the great work with your blog.

    I take the opposite approach, planning the yearly parties around times when the garden looks best. It’s easier for me that way, since I do not have the timing down as well as you . . .yet.

    I love the ROSES! They’re very sweet to the eye and I can’t help but just stare at them and enjoy the experience. Great designs!
