Landscaping pictures are an excellent source of ideas. You want to open the box and give wings to your landscaping project, consider looking at landscaping pictures. It will help you choose plants, trees and flowers, but it will also help you match trees and bushes, flowers and ornaments. Below are a few ideas, but then this site is full of ideas.
The classic lawn
Most people go for what you could call the ‘Classic Lawn’. In the following landscaping pictures, grass occupies most of the space. A few trees and shrubs are placed here and there, in locations where they do not block the view of the house. Perennials and annuals complete the picture and give color and light.
Shaded yards pose a big problem: many of the most popular plants are sun loving rather than shade loving plants. And trying to grow sun loving plants in the shade is a recipe for failure.
But the fact that your yard is in the shade most of the time doesn’t mean that you can’t have a nice looking yard, it merely means that you have to adapt to the situation.
Most people can’t even imagine a landscaping without flowers. Trees and shrubs bring structure, but flowers bring color and light. For sunny yards, you have thousands and thousands of flowers to choose from.
For shaded yards, the choice is much more limited, but still there are some very interesting flowers on the market today. If you do have a shaded yard, consider the fact that color will make your yard stand out and seem less dark.
Stone steps and paths
Stone paths and steps can be practical, but they can also make your yard seem more inviting.
As a finishing touch, consider adding planters filled with flowers.
