🌳🆘🌳 I am often asked how I decide what shrub to put where when designing my landscape…or in this case, renovating and repairing my landscape❗️In this video, I try to share my design perspective for my informal garden, concentrating on creating natural drifts of color and rhythmic plantings throughout the front garden beds. I can’t thank my friends at Southern Living Plants and Encore azaleas enough for coming to my rescue and providing these gorgeous shrubs to help resurrect my damaged plantings!

Check out this great article about planting with Encore Azaleas and Camellias: https://www.encoreazalea.com/gardening/inspiration/create-magic-in-the-landscape-with-azaleas-camellias

MY TOP GARDEN DESIGN TIPS:
1. Use electrical flags to help map out where you want to put your plants

2. Sticking to a more limited color palette creates sophistication & allows for easier decision making.

3. Try to incorporate an effect you find beautiful in nature into your landscape design.

4. Changing your mind is a gardener’s prerogative! Don’t be afraid to change your mind and play around with your placement.

5. Think about picking plants that will bloom in both the spring and the fall to ensure your garden has color throughout the seasons.

6. An informal design provides more flexibility for changes after a major weather event. Symmetrical design is more challenging to fix if something goes awry.
