Spring is a great time to redesign your building’s landscaping. Before you reach out to your landscaper asking for ideas, it might help to know more about specific plant types – specifically, annuals and perennials.
Annuals are plants that live for just one season. They’re typically planted around this time of year, bloom for the season, and then die. Perennials, on the other hand, remain dormant during winter, but regrow every spring.
Fortunately, you don’t have to choose one over the other. Annuals and perennials can be combined in your planting design to reap the best of both. Because of their varying sizes, perennials will add depth to your landscaping, while annuals will add a pop of color. Here are tips for planting both.
Mix it up.
A variety of plant types will give your landscaping long-lasting beauty.
Do your homework.
Find out a plant’s tolerance to the sun before deciding on a location for it.
Help them get established.
Water all plants thoroughly and regularly after planting, especially during the summer months.
Wait and see.
Perennials aren’t going to impress you at the first sign of warmer weather. Be patient and give them time to adjust.
Whether planting annuals or perennials, the most important component for a lush garden is proper maintenance. The SFM Landscaping professionals are fully equipped and prepared to ensure your new landscaping flourishes.
