The planting aspect of a landscape consists of selecting the appropriate plants for each of the outdoor living spaces throughout the yard. Plants are chosen for a variety of reasons. Hardiness, color, form and texture are the predominate criterion for selection, but other attributes of the plants are also considered, such as fragrance, fruit and benefit to wildlife. Plantscapes can evoke memories, create moods and provide year long seasonal interest. The Windswept Gardens certified staff consider many factors when selecting the plants for your landscape. Some of the plants are your personal favorites that have been incorporated into the design which were determined at the initial design meeting and the others are used to enhance your outdoor living environment. The correct choice of plants can create a sense of flow or rhythm while complimenting your homes architecture and marrying it to the existing environment. The multi-seasonal landscape establishes a pleasant calming environment to be enjoyed and lived in for many years to come.
