TOP 3 PLANTS TO ADD SPRING COLOR TO YOUR GARDEN

When designing landscapes I like to plant for each season.  This means that I design so that every season there is some sort of color in the landscapes.  Doing this allows for a more colorful experience.  It also gives the local beneficial wildlife food to each season after season. 

Remember that you are only limited by your imagination!  There is not one right color for your garden other than the color you fancy most.  You have endless drought tolerant color choices to choose from.  In this video I share with you the top 3 plants that bloom in the spring.

TOP 3 PLANTS TO ADD WINTER COLOR TO YOUR GARDEN

When I design landscapes I like to think about the colors I am adding to the garden.  I try to make design such that each season there is some sort of flower color.  You really can create a garden filled with different flowers, where not all of the flowers bloom in one season.

In this video I share with you 3 plants that you should consider adding to the garden if you want color in the winter.  These plants are very drought tolerant, require minimal maintenance and don't need to be watered much after establishment period.

Remember that in gardening you are only limited by your imagination and it is far easier to add color to your landscape with flowers.  If you decided in a few years that you don't like that color then you can easily replace that plant in comparison to painting your house some funky color.

TOP 3 PLANTS TO ADD FALL COLOR TO YOUR GARDEN

When I design gardens, I keep one thing in mind.  Planting so that every season there is some sort of color.  This not only adds interest to the garden but also keeps things from getting boring.  Adding color through plants is also a great way to try out different colors in your landscape that are not permanent.  This way if you end up getting tired of a certain color, then that plant is far easier to replace then having to repaint a wall.

You are not limited by your options and in fact you can mix and match colors depending on your taste.  A good rule of thumb is to pick at least two plants that bloom most of the year and add pops of color throughout the seasons.  The colors you add depends on what colors you fancy.

On that note this video is all about the top 3 plants to add for fall color.
