When the weather gets warm, a handful of flowers and plants give your outdoor space that feels spring. With its prominent color and texture, flower beds easily shake the winter fatigue of your home.
Whether you want to plant flowers, herbs, vegetables, or shrubs, there are beautiful flower ideas here for you. If you think of plant beds for grandmothers and country cottages, think again! Flower beds don’t have to be boring or predictable.
From old suitcases to antique cauldrons, all it takes is a little creativity to show your personality through your garden! There are also many simple and easy projects to make, too. There’s even an idea for elevated beds so you never hit your plant with a lawnmower. Do you want to try the idea? Let’s see!
1. Perennial Flower Beds for Summer-long Bloom
A flower bed filled with perennials is a blooming thing that lasts all summer then returns year after year. Try a bed with a serpentine border dominated by pink begonias with a smaller edge of white begonias. Break pink and add high with wise plants from boxwood, miscanthus grass, Barberi, daylilies and tall, orange canna lily.
2. Tree-Based Bed with Stone
Liven up space under the favorite tree with a circular bed made of large stones. Fill the inside of the stone with gardening soil and plant lots of colored, pink, and Bizzy lizzies. Plants like Veronica are tucked in between other plants to cool a little heat and add texture.
3. Bedside Side Yard for Small Space
Don’t ignore the side pages! Plant juicy plants in flower boxes and around the edges of simple basic beds. Contrast their pink and white flowers by planting deep green lotus flowers. Although lilies are mostly planted for their leaves, now and then they send towers that produce small flowers, lavender, purple or white.
