Layered Garden Landscaping

Oct 15, 2019

Layered backyard patio gardenCould your home do with a little more garden landscaping? Probably so, and that is a good thing! In fact, you should be very excited about it because there is nothing more fun than layered garden landscaping! It will get your imagination working overtime and you will have a ball planting and rearranging your plants and flowers.

By layering your garden landscaping beds you will be able to add a whole other level of beauty to your landscaping design. Your yard is the first thing that people will see when they come to your house and giving a grand tour that includes a fabulous garden is always fun and exciting. You’ll be the talk of the neighborhood, and for all the right reasons, when you have really good garden landscaping.

Where to Start!

Tall flower gardenLayering your garden landscape design is easy to do. You need to know the flowers that you’re going to plant first however. The choices that you make as far as the flowers and other plants will affect just how your garden landscaping is laid out. For example, you do not want to have the taller plants in front of the shorter ones. This is obvious but you should make a rough sketch of where you want things laid out before you begin. This will help you to keep things as simple as possible. Your layered garden landscape will go a lot faster this way and you will run into fewer problems as you go.

When layering you should have about three layers. Your back row should face north, if possible, and the back row should have the tallest plants. As the rows descend so should the heights of the plants and flowers. The trick to this kind of garden landscaping is that oftentimes the plants we buy are baby plants. So you’ll need to talk to those working at your local gardening store about how large the plants will grow. This is key to successful garden landscaping. If one row of your garden grows much higher than another, you’ll have to do some rearranging.

The layering effect of your garden landscape design will add depth and make your garden much more interesting to look at. This is what will make your garden landscaping a success. Always check out your local growers to see what is available in your area and what will grow best based on the time of year you’re looking to plant!
