Patios are one of the best and most desired hardscape additions to a home. They make your outdoor space look and feel larger and provide you with the perfect area for outdoor entertaining, relaxation and family dining.
In addition to your beautiful brick paver patio, your outdoor space just wouldn’t feel complete without the right landscaping, which will add impact to your patio and dial up your enjoyment of your outdoor oasis.
However, you don’t want to make the wrong choices when it comes to landscaping. Instead of adding to the beauty of the space you can inadvertently take away from its comfort with the wrong plant and flower choices. Whether you are a do-it-yourselfer or are hiring a professional landscaper, here are some dos and don’ts to consider when flower and shrub shopping.
*Choose fragrant flowers and shrubs. Plant them close by to intensify the experience or farther away for a more subtle effect.
*Patios offer the opportunity to view plants close-up, so containers and nearby beds are the ideal way to appreciate plants with delicate colors, leaves or flowers.
*Pick four-season plants. Opt for plants that offer four-season interest. Small evergreens, evergreens that flower, and trees and shrubs with interesting bark colors and textures are good choices.
*Choose sharp or spikey plants.
*Use plants with unpleasant aromas.
*Plant fast-growers too close. You want plants that fill out and provide a lush look, but fast-growers can quickly begin to intrude into your living space.
