Evergreen Landscaping Ideas – Eternal Oases
Conifers have a special symbolism, representing eternity and strength, a message and a symbol that any green space around a house could spread through some simple decorating ideas with such trees or shrubs. In the context of a growing interest for this type of vegetation, the options that are now available are so diverse, covering the entire range available from tall, globular, crawling to the bushy conifers. Here’s more on evergreen landscaping ideas, along with some images that will inspire you.
You create two separate plantings, each on a scale of its own. One would be a big, semicircular bed with large evergreens—white pines, Norway spruce, Frasier firs— standing at the back of the bed to serve as a screen along the property line and to create a background for intermediate-sized conifers planted in front. For the smaller-scale garden, you can plan an array of free-form, raised beds planted with miniature and dwarf conifers, as well as ground-hugging perennials. Curving paths would thread between the smaller beds, making it easier to view the plants.
Dwarf conifers can serve as versatile plants regardless of how much space you have. Three key ways to use them are as anchors of ever-changing planting vignettes, as vertical elements in a design, and in clusters with other dwarf conifers.
Dwarf conifers can be truly compared to garden stalwarts. One way to capitalize on these evergreens is to make them anchors in mixed plantings that change from season to season. Compact evergreens provide attractive stability in a bed or border as bulbs, perennials, and annuals come and go. Conifers with all types of contours, from low mounds to pyramids, can be used in this way.
The small size and slow-growth habit of dwarf conifers make them easier to transplant than some woody plants. In fact, gardeners considering a move within 10 years of planting a dwarf conifer would likely be able to pack it up along with their favorite perennials, roses, and household belongings.
The pictures below clearly prove the role that these trees ornamental evergreen have in a garden. They add extra texture and color, especially in autumn, when the overall landscape tends to be ruby. Combine some of the conifer species listed earlier for a savory natural landscape that will personalize the garden. We’ll let the pictures below speak for themselves.
