As the weather warms up, we can help but start thinking about what we’re planting in the garden this year! We love how therapeutic gardening is and we also love having a beautifully landscaped and colorful yard. Whether your yard is big or small, shady or full of sun, we have the plants for you. Here’s to yummy smelling, bright and colorful yards to fill with amazing memories this season.


Mostly shady yard? No problem, there are so many great plants that love that shady spot. Which means having a shady yard doesn’t mean you can’t still have a beautiful garden! Our top picks for your perfect garden are hostas, astilbe, foxglove, and primrose.


Or, maybe you have the opposite scenario and your yard is full sun all the time. That works too! There are plenty of plants that survive and thrive in a nice sunny space. For this yard, our picks are daylilies, shasta daisies, black eyed Susans, and coneflowers.


Is your goal to walk outside to a beautiful and deliciously fragrant space? We don’t blame you… it sounds amazing! There are so many wonderfully fragrant plants that it can be hard to pick which ones are your favorites. Ours are wisteria, hyacinth, lilacs, and gardenia!


Do you have a trellis or arbor of some sort that you dream of having beautiful floral growth on? It’s one of our favorite looks too! It’s not always easy to find the right climbing plants, but our picks are morning glories, trumpet vine, moonflowers, and dutchman’s pipe.


Hey, not everyone is born with a green thumb. Or maybe you’re already running around like crazy and just don’t have time to commit to caring for a garden on a regular basis. No worries at all, we know how it feels! Luckily, there are some really easy keepers that will create that beautiful garden you’re looking for without all the extra work. Our picks are Russian sage, coral bells, yarrow, and chrysanthemum.
