This summer, there are so many wonderful things you can do in your yard. From climate conscious trends to planting the brightest flowers imaginable, read on to see our collection of the summer’s top landscaping ideas to make your yard a stunner!
If you’re thinking green, maybe this trend is for you! More people are choosing to plant foliage and flowers that are native to their area. Doing this helps attract the natural critters of the area and fortifies the soil! For Michigan, that would be plants like Maidenhair ferns, chives, hyssops, and milkweed. Milkweeds are also great for attracting butterflies.
“Cottagecore” Inspired Gardens
If you’ve been keeping up with online trends, then you may have heard of the now prominent aesthetic called “cottagecore”. This is mostly an aesthetic that calls in feelings of living a simple, content life that one may get while living in a humble cottage. This feeling could be reflected in lush flowers and bushes, rustic fixtures and décor, and cobbled pathways.
Vibrant, colorful flowers are always in style, and can brighten up any yard. Lavender, Sedum, Geraniums, and Cosmos are some of the many beautiful flowers out there right now. Adding a multitude of colors can make a yard more beautiful in so many wonderful ways.
