While people enjoy gardens with flowers, they take effort to maintain. People are starting to adopt “zen gardens,” where there is no plant life that must be taken care of. Others are including shrubs and foliage which take care of themselves. Some plants are suggested for creating a maintenance-free garden in one’s home area.
- These gardens may be significantly easier to maintain than a plot full of posies.
- You don’t need to worry about plants going in and out of bloom.
- Coleus is one of the most versatile foliage plants you can choose.
“A water feature always adds a nice element — a pond, or a creek, with the sound of running water. It’s especially nice if you have some lush foliage over the water.”
