With the first day of Spring just weeks away, it’s time to start planning your annual flowerbed. It may sound like a lofty undertaking, but creating a stunning flowerbed for your front or backyard is much easier than you think.

Many homeowners love this annual right of passage to construct a centerpiece in their yard by adding a splash of color. With careful planning and attention to detail, you can arrange a flowerbed that will be the talk of the neighborhood.

Flower Garden Plans

Creating a beautiful flower garden is an exciting and rewarding endeavor. With careful planning, even novice gardeners can create a stunning array of blooms.

Your plan should include estimates on the number of flowers you want and the shape you want the garden to take. Before planting any flowers or cutting root balls, you must know how many flowers you’ll need to build your flower garden.

Sketching Out the Layout

Although it takes a bit of planning and preparation, you can design the perfect outdoor haven for you and your family to enjoy of season. It’s important to sketch out the layout of your flower garden first.

By having a predesigned garden layout, you can speed up your time in planting just by knowing which flower to plant and how much space the flowers need to thrive. Creating a detailed sketch ensures your garden is lush, vibrant, and healthy for many years.

Identify Colors

The highlight of creating any flowerbed is choosing the colors for a space. It’s an important decision that can make or break the look and feel of your garden.

Fortunately, there are some great mobile applications that can help identify colors that will work well together to create visual balance. Whether selecting a color scheme that is complementary or contrasting, these digital applications can take the guesswork out of choosing colors to design a beautiful space.

Flower Type and Size

Finally, when selecting the right flowers for your garden, it is essential to consider the size and type of flower you are planting. For the four-state region, you must choose plants that can thrive through a hot, dry summer or a hot wet summer.

Annuals are well suited for flower gardens that will highlight a designed shape. As the annuals grow, the blossoms will proliferate into vibrant showy outdoor flower displays. Additionally, perennials can provide lasting beauty without needing to be replanted each year.
