When you are designing the outdoor garden space, draw in areas for walkways and raised planting areas. If you opt to include container beds, placing them strategically is ideal so they will add to the design. For example, tree placement should be near the center area of the garden, and shrubs should be placed from the tallest near the outer edges to the shorter options being near the open space.

Each plant or shrub has different water needs. It is best to speak with an experienced gardener to strategically place plants with similar watering requirements in the same area. You will also want to read the tags on the plants to see what the grower suggests regarding watering.

It takes a little bit of trial and error to get it right. Asking for the help of landscape gardeners, Shrewsbury can provide helpful insight and help you to select the right plants for your garden area.
