Use This Technique To Achieve Natural Landscaping Borders
Landscape borders allow you to visually unify the elements in your garden, dictate the garden walkway, and keep different areas of the yard from blending into each other.
Get a lush and natural-looking landscape by replicating a few plant species throughout the edges. This will help the plants flow together and make the border look well-structured.
Our brains thrive on patterns so it’s a good idea to create a border with repeating plants in mind. Experiment with pairings like dahlias and lilies, interspersed with begonias.
If you’d like your edges to bloom year-round, plant them with recurrent plantings of spring and summer perennials in mind, so when one closes off, the other will bloom.
