Planning A Perennial Garden

Planning a Perennial Garden

Planning is an essential part of having a perennial garden. Gardens that are not planned usually have no direction and often are a jumble of color.

When planning a garden consider the flowing factors;

  • Will your perennial garden have a formal or informal style
  • What are the existing soil conditions
  • Is the area wet or dry
  • How much sun does the area receive per day.
  • Does your garden receive full sun, part shade or is it heavily shaded
  • What flower colors, textures, fragrances, and plant forms do you like
  • What is the preferred angle of view for your perennial garden

Once all the factors are considered, then it is time to lay out your garden on paper.
