Beginner Landscape Tips to Keep in Mind for the Spring

  • Design Your Yard With All Four Seasons in Mind

One of the best tips that we can give to beginner landscapers, is to ensure that your design takes into consideration Kelowna’s four seasons. Making sure that your yard is interesting in spring, summer, fall and winter is critical in a successful design. During the spring and summer, you’ll want the vibrance of flowering trees, shrubs and plants. However, come fall, warm-toned foliage will be essential. Finally, during winter the presence of evergreens helps to bring a little colour into the usually dull atmosphere.

  • Use Both Annuals & Perennials 

Another important tip beginners should note is to use both annual and perennial plants when creating a landscaping plan. Perennial flowers are great for planting beds, however they only bloom for a short period of time. This means that there will inevitably be a period where nothing is blossoming. To fill in the gaps between perennial blooms, plant some annuals so that you have vibrant flowers all season long. We recommend bulbs, petunias, and zinnias. Be mindful that deer like to eat most annuals so you’ll want to plant them in places where deer will be less likely to chow down on your flowering pals. 

  • Don’t Skip Hardscaping

Greenery and plants are only the beginning of what is possible with your yard. Many homeowners forget that hardscaping is a possibility as well. However, sometimes hardscaping is a little more challenging to DIY. Despite this, hardscaped elements are not something you want to skip out on; they provide structure and add far more value to your property than a well-manicured lawn. If you’re not confident in completing a hardscaping project, contact an expert like Fuller’s Landscaping Company!
