How Adding Ornamentals Makes a Big Difference

Is your home or business’s current landscape feeling a little bit dull? While you may have beautiful trees and a nicely cut lawn, this doesn’t always complete the total package. Having a great landscape takes more than just green space, and the details often play a big role in the overall look and feel. One of the best ways to add interesting elements to your lacking landscape is to look into plants known as ornamentals. These purely decorative items will not only enhance what is existing, but they can add pops of color that will add vibrancy to your entire outdoor space!

Garden Elements
The garden really is a great place for ornamentals since they can be easily incorporated and cared for here. Think of items like roses, bulb flowers, fruit plants or even plants that produce a scent like herbs. By playing on a number of the senses, you can give your once dull garden beds an upgrade while adding a beautiful landscaping element that will improve the overall look and feel of your lawn.

Did you know that some trees can be considered ornamentals? Generally, these trees are of the smaller variety and are perfect for use on areas like lawn islands or along a building/house. Additionally, flowering trees make great choices in these scenarios since they will provide a touch of color and vibrancy that can’t be achieved through traditional selections. Your local nursery will generally have a wide range of trees to choose from, so be sure to ask the staff which would be considered ornamental for a more closely matched selection.

Regular Maintenance
Many plants that serve an ornamental purpose do require some maintenance by the gardener, homeowner or business owner. So be sure that you understand everything that goes into properly caring for your decorative choices – from annually pruning the branches to cultivating any fruit or flower that is produced. Again, be sure to check with your local nursery professional on what needs to be done to keep your landscape’s new additional healthy and thriving through all of the months of the year.
