Tomatoes and cucumbers are a must. They can be grown in patio containers and in amongst your regular backyard landscaping. Add some lettuce and spinach as greenery in cooler spots of your yard as ground cover. Include a big barrel of mixed herbs in your backyard landscaping for a culinary delight. Thyme is an excellent ’steppable’ ground cover and edging. Lavender is a favorite of bees and hummingbirds. The possibilities are endless, we at LandscapingCentral.net have suggested just a few to encourage you to include incredible edible beauty into your backyard landscaping.
Now, let’s go even beyond that and get into an area where you can get really creative and let your personality shine through…. garden art. There are no rules whatsoever here. Simple things like adding tiki torches along a path can make a real statement. Want to get more out there, create a faux Mayan ruin surrounded by tropical-looking foliage. If you don’t have a pool, build a small pond complete with cascading waterfall. Or, suspend a comfortable hammock between trees, complete with a fake (or real!) parrot watching over you while you relax. Remember, no rules here. This is all about you. Have fun.
Creating a Solid Foundation, The good news is that this may start with what you already have. Here, use only things that are reliably winter hardy. This is the skeleton for your backyard landscape and we want it strong. Large trees, evergreen shrubs and small understory trees, and perennials that return year after year will set your foundation. This is completely specific to your area.
