It’s important to vary the heights of vegetation when you create your native plant garden because they are a factor when it comes to providing shelter, nesting and food for wildlife.
Choosing flowering perennial plants and trees that bloom at various times during the season are great choices for your garden.
It is helpful to provide order within your native plantings and repeat colors and shapes throughout the garden. A focal point, such as a bench, bird bath, or a specimen plant gives the eyes somewhere to land and rest.
Consider color schemes when designing your plantings. You can design with complementary colors, analogous colors, or monochromatic color schemes.
