Landscaping PlantThe weather has got nicer, and after a cold winter all you actually want to do is liven up your yard with some landscaping plants. However, just one visit to your local garden center revealed to you that there are a lot of choices, so you will need some advice when it comes to choosing the right landscaping plants.

About Landscaping Plants

The first thing you need to think of is the effect that you want your landscaping plants to have. Do you want landscaping plants just for aesthetic purposes, or would you prefer to have landscaping plants that are more for privacy?

Landscaping Plants For Privacy

Ivy VineWhether you want landscaping plants that provide privacy, you need look no further than the ivy vine. If you are unfamiliar with the ivy vine, you have likely seen it in movies or in quaint cottage depictions. This vine is quite hardy and requires only a fence or the side of a house to climb up of.

The thing that you might have to take into consideration is the rate at which the ivy plant grows. You see, when you first purchase the ivy plant at your local garden store, you’ll notice that it is relatively small. However, you might find that over the course of a night the vine will have grown by several inches! 😯

Therefore, keep this in mind, because otherwise the ivy will sooner or later completely cover over the area that it is placed upon.

Landscaping Plants For Aesthetic Purposes

Tropical FlowersIf you would prefer to use flowers as landscaping plants, you have to consider the overall climate in which you live. Tropical flowers that you see in your garden store can only be placed outside in case the climate is temperate throughout the year. Otherwise, they are meant as indoor plants.

 Impatiens With Chrysanthemums

Hence, if you live in a climate that had 4 definitive seasons, you should consider a flowering plant that is known to be quite hardy, and those generally are Impatiens or Chrysanthemums. Both flowers do require watering, but only every other day and they require a mix of sun and shade as well.

If you are hesitant about buying either of those kids of flowers, be aware of the fact that these flowers are available in a variety of different colors.

If you would like additional information about landscaping plants, make sure to ask for advice at your local garden center.
