If you prefer a sparse yet still lovely looking landscaped outdoors, here are 5 minimalist landscaping strategies you can consider.
Forget going for a full blown garden which will have a high maintenance requirement. Plan garden pockets and select the best areas that’ll shower your whole outdoor with a burst of floral beauty.
From a dry stream to rock mosaics and stone figures installed, create interesting focal points in your garden that do not need water, soil and fertilizer to add beauty. From sun dials to flowers and even abstract art installations, your imagination is the only limit to your stone landscaping. Make it stand out even at night with luminescent paint, too.
Succulents are at home in a Texas landscape. Also known as xeriscaping, planting succulents gives a homeowner a thrifty but pretty garden plot that does not require a lot of tending. By simply choosing a succulent mix that provides color, turn your dreary garden into succulent-pretty instead.
For those who have space as an issue, vertical gardening is the answer to your problem. Simply put up a hanging pallet and voila! Other than pallets, you can also use PVC tubes and plastic bottles, you can transform just about anything into garden ledges. You now have a living artwork of plants in your small patio. From herbs to flowering plants and more, your patio will all be the brighter for it.
Bonsai or Fairy Gardens
