Part 3: Make It Yours
Make It Yours
Now it’s time to make your yard truly yours. Find those cool specimen plants that will make your yard different and unique and reflect YOUR personal taste, not just the Jones’ . Pick a Japanese Maple, a weeping spruce or cedar, Mahonia, Exbury Azalea, Edworthia, Illicium, Flowering Cherry, etc. Plant on the edge of the yard or near a patio or deck so you can chat about it with visiting company/conversation topic.
Cool perennials to accent foundation and walkway. Make a container, make two. Add inexpensive annuals for seasonal blasts of color. Fill in that shady or wet spot.
Plan For The Future
This is the last step. You’ve got everything the way you want it and now it’s just about upkeep and a final touch. Kids? Plant a tree or unique shrub together and watch it grow and change as they do. Second home/middle aged couple? Plant a shade tree to enjoy after retirement.
