The weather is getting warmer and warmer — do you know what that means?
Yes, you’re right! It’s time to focus more on your property and the gardens that make it look so fabulous!
Wait, you don’t have an extravagant garden surrounding your home?
Don’t fret! Our team here at Ambrosio can go over garden basics and let you know the different types of gardens and which one is right for your home.
Do you want to have a similar looking garden year after year for a consistent look? Do you want to be able to have a garden while doing as little gardening and maintenance as possible?
If so, then perennial gardens are definitely for you!
Perennial flowers will bloom each and every year without you having to do anything — other than your normal watering and a bit of pruning/deadheading.
Have you ever seen gardens filled with bushes and shrubs cut into symmetrical shapes as you walk through the property?
This is known as a formal garden.
For homeowners with large backyards that would like to show off statues and walkways, formal gardens will allow you to take your guests on a tour of beauty!
Not every home receives an adequate amount of sunlight. Sometimes larger trees, buildings, other homes, and your home’s angle can limit the amount of sun that certain areas on your property can see.
In this instance, you want to create a shade garden filled with plants that don’t require a lot of sunlight in order to grow.
Gardens don’t always have to be just for aesthetic purposes. Fill your garden with tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, cabbage — you name it!
This type of garden is more for the hobbyist that will be on top of the upkeep. But the results are worth it when you can actually taste your hard work and dedication!
Do you have a slope in your yard?
This area is the perfect place for a rain garden. When rainwater falls from the roof to the ground, it will begin to flow down the slope of your property.
Rain gardens will soak up most of this water, rather than letting it pool elsewhere. This type of garden can be filled with a variety of perennials, shrubs, and other types of flowers.
Does your backyard have a pond or water feature (like a fountain or a man-made waterfall)?
Water gardens allow you to plant flowers inside of (and around) these water features to give them a more natural look. These plants and flowers will give your water features an added level of detail that will complete the look of your backyard.
Starting a garden can be quite difficult if you’re not sure which type of garden to begin with.
Luckily, our professionals here at Ambrosio can help you choose the gardens that are best for your property (and your lifestyle). We can help design these gardens, build them, and even take care of them for you — all you have to do is let us know when to come over!
