Starting Fresh or Doing a Refresh
We have 6 Key Landscaping Principles to creating a landscape and garden that beautifully complements your home. Follow these principles from Art That Grows:
Use Flanking and Framing to complement your home’s architecture
Showcase Larger Plant Types in a way that doesn’t compete with the home’s architecture, but rather creates an inviting and welcoming “hug” to the home
Create Tiers and Layering of different plants beginning in the foreground with grass or ground cover and finishing as a backdrop with large shrubs or trees. Then fill the space between with varied-height plantings
Use Evergreens at the back and up-front, and deciduous or perennial in the middle
Consider the style of your home, its color and your landscape’s color, and natural and artificial lighting levels
Choose a Plant Palate that ensures success, one that will endure the extreme weather conditions of North Texas
