The DIY Landscaper, Part IV

This week let's talk about Massing Plants!

Path lined with Hydrangeas Annabelle

This week let’s talk about Massing Plants!

Massing plants provide color, texture and bloom in numbers! Massing plants could be shrubs or perennials. For shrubs, hydrangeas are the most popular plant at Sunnyside Gardens. Hydrangeas come in white, green, pink, blue and even purple!  For perennial flowers, Coreopsis is a favorite for our landscape designers. Bright yellow flowers that require little or no dead-heading,  and bloom all summer! Other great massing or border plants include any variety of Dianthus, Heuchera or Lysimachia.

Looking for some more advice, or someone to do the heavy lifting for you? Give us a call, and one of our professional Landscape Designers would be happy to help!
