Todays Perennial Garden Design has evolved to include ornamental grasses, hardy shrub roses, colorful flowering shrubs, vines and even unique dwarf conifers.
Whether it’s a traditional ‘English Garden’ look or another themed garden (oriental, cutting, scented, herb, monochromatic) or a personalized unique garden space, Hillside Garden Center can help you with plants, design and installation.
Perennial Gardens can be large high maintenance beds to small colorful low maintenance areas. Consider how much work you want to do (or pay for) before designing and installing.
Plant selection is the biggest factor in the amount of maintenance and long term color desired. Choosing pest resistant plants and plants that have long bloom periods that require little deadheading or staking will reduce maintenance drastically. Longevity is another factor - consider a Peony, Daylily or Hosta that may last generations versus a Columbine, Dianthus or Foxglove that are very short lived, reseed and wander in your garden.
Along with your personal lifestyle, all these factors are considered when we make a design just for you!
