Choosing plants for your yard is simple, right? Just walk though a nursery and pick out something you like the look of. Done!
Choosing the right plants for your home or business involves some careful planning and consideration.
Beyond just knowing what the plant needs to survive – sunlight conditions, water, soil type, etc., it’s important to know if the plant will be a positive addition to your landscape.
This is where experts like those at Gregory Landscape Services can be invaluable sources of information.
Here are just a few examples of plants you may want to avoid in your landscaping plans.
Some plants can be poisonous to humans and animals and should be avoided or at least placed in areas with low foot traffic. This includes lily of the valley and foxglove. Both visually appealing flowers with deadly toxins.
In commercial landscaping especially you may want to avoid plants that drop a lot of leaves or fruit especially near walking areas. This includes trees like Japanese Maples that drop a tremendous amount of leaves in the fall and can cause a slipping hazard.
Another consideration for commercial property is to avoid shrubs that can quickly grow into large and unruly plants that if not maintained could create visual impairments and lead to the creation of an unsafe environment.
It’s important to communicate with your landscape professionals so they can understand what your goals are for your landscaping project and you can learn what mistakes to avoid.
