Art and Linda's Wildflowers does not diagram the plan prior to installation. Rather, we rely on concepts and habitats. We use a wide variety of habitat appropriate flowers, grasses, sedges, ferns, trees and shrubs.
Could you imagine trying to diagram out a garden like this? It would be meaningless and not do the garden (or the owner) justice.
A few good rules to follow in natural landscaping are:
- Put the tall plants in the back and the short ones up front.
- Plant for all the seasons including winter.
- Don't use plants that get overly aggressive or out of control.
- Make sure to use plants that are the favorites of the birds, the butterflies and the owners.
