2021 Floral Landscape

Jun 14, 2021 | Garden, Maggie Lane Designs

Happy Monday everyone!  I couldn’t wait to share this post because it’s bright and cheerful and that was the outdoor look I was going for this year!  Here is my 2021 Floral Landscape and backyard bliss with colors blooming from spring to fall!  When we bought our house, we were fortunate to have the landscape done around the house but I was also blessed with almost an acre of great space to do what I wanted with.  So I set out to do something every year and build on my ideas for a lush yard.  If you have ever done any landscape, it’s both full-filling and expensive.  If you are not hiring a landscape expert, it’s best to plan out your projects.  Any questions about gardening, visit www.BloomIQ.com for more help!

 
The floral aroma throughout my yard is amazing this year.  We have bees, butterflies, and a hummingbird that visits us every morning!  With trips to Bedner’s Greenhouse and Lowe’s (pink daisies and grey lanterns), I was able to accomplish all of my goals!  Scroll through to see how I brought our yard to life with color, florals, and plants that thrive in full sun.  I created 7 combination containers, 8 herb containers including parsley, rosemary, thyme, and arugula and infused already potted floral containers and hanging baskets from Bedner’s Garden which you will see more of on Wednesday’s post!

The key to creating lush containers is the soil.  Make sure the bottom of your container has a combination of drainage material such as small rock and dirt, combine your fertilizer and soil, add in your plant, and then surround your plant with more soil and water thoroughly.  Keep your plants hydrated every day and deadhead any brown leaves or dead foliage.
If your local garden shop has gardening classes, take one!  They are so beneficial and full of knowledge.  See if your local garden center has a dedicated one-on-one service for individuals to meet with their landscape artist to answer any questions you may have.
Make sure your container is large enough for the specific plants you want to use and do not combine full sun plants with plants or flowers that do not like sunlight.
Remember rain water is the best for watering.  If you can build something that collects the rain water and is an automatic watering system, it saves you time and helps your florals to flourish.
You also want to make sure that you do not over water or under water.  I purchased from Amazon automatic watering tools both in glass and plastic.  You can fill the tubes up with water, use the spike to insert them into your hanging baskets or container and the water will release as your plant needs it.
I hope you enjoyed this flowery post.  Stay tuned for Wednesday where I show you my tear shaped floral garden, new bird bath from Lowe’s, and more pictures of my landscape with some tips to help with your gardening needs.  Enjoy!

I love hearing from all of you and do my best to respond to each and every one of you.  I always enjoy your comments, feedback, and suggestions so keep them coming!  If I’ve posted a recipe (for our human and our furry friends) and you try it, don’t forget to tag me on Instagram @twoadorablelabs and use #twoadorablelabs​.

      Thank you so much! We have been spending so much time this year on our back patio and our side porch. We even cooked breakfast on our new griddle grill. The yard is blooming! I can’t wait to share more pictures on Wednesday. And yes, we are enjoying our Puppy Paws Coffee Company tea and coffee! Everyone needs to order the Rottweiler…our favorite!

    So pretty! I am always looking for deer resistant plants for Innsbrook. We have so many trees, so a lot of shaded areas.y

      Thank you! We have deer in our neighborhood as well so I’m always reading up on deer resistant plants. The Sylvia’s have not disappointed! You can also plant Day Lillies. They bloom a gorgeous yellow flower, mound up, are good ground cover, and are hearty. They also work in shaded and full sun. I’ll be including those on my blog post on Wednesday.
