OK, what’s going on here? It looks like a pow-wow. Or a landscape design put in a blender. One of this, one of that, spaced in a circle in the midst of the front lawn. Yikes. The lack of unity with such segregated plantings as this can cause a front yard to look somewhat busy.
Take your cue from nature. Plant in groups to create impact and display varieties in larger drifts. Three of this, five of that, nine of the other – very rarely does nature let a plant stand alone. Grouping your plants in of odd numbers will give the garden a more natural appearance. Also, place your grouping in more staggered arrangements, not in circles or straight lines. Garden gurus – anything to add?
