01 Sep ENHANCE YOUR LAWN WITH THE COLOURS OF SPRING
As the chilly grip of winter loosens, the once-dormant and dry lawns and landscapes are beginning to come back to life with a symphony of colours, smells and sounds. The bees are buzzing, the grass is getting greener, and flowers are starting to bloom – spring is here!
Now is the perfect time to compliment your lush lawn by infusing new life into your outdoor space. Here, we’ll take you on a journey through the world of spring-blooming flowers and how you can integrate them into your landscaping design.
Choosing the right flowers
When selecting new blooms for your garden, it’s important to consider a few factors such as climate compatibility, colour palette, bloom timing, and sunlight requirements.
Climate compatibility: Since we have such diverse climate zones in South Africa, different flowers may flourish better in different regions. That’s why it’s best to research what grows well in your specific area to ensure a successful bloom.
Colour palette: Think about the colours that resonate with you and work well together. You might want to create a harmonious blend or go for a bold, contrasting look.
Bloom timing: Different flowers can bloom at different times during spring. Planning your flower selection carefully can help ensure a continuous display of colours throughout the season.
Sunlight requirements: Some flowers will do best in full sunlight, while other blooms like forest lilies thrive in shadier parts of the garden.
Integrating spring flowers into your landscape
Enhancing your outdoor space with the vibrant charm of spring blooms can be a fun and creative endeavor! One way to achieve this is to create designated flower beds along the edges of your lawn, forming a delightful border of colourful blooms that frames the green expanse of your lush lawn. Consider using mixed planters of various heights to create an interesting element of dimension, or design natural pathways using stepping stones or gravel.
For a captivating centerpiece, position larger flower beds or flowering shrubs at the center of your lawn. This draws attention to the heart of your garden and creates a focal point that captures the essence of the season. With thoughtful planning and creativity, these clever approaches can help add new life to your garden after a long and dreary winter!
