With the spring and summer seasons coming up, now is a great time to think about how you may want to restore and refresh the appearance of your front and back yards. One way is by installing a brand-new home garden design, which comes with a variety of choices to make.  This includes your preferences in plants, ornaments, and hardscape additions, as well as the overall style in how they are arranged.

Alone, this may seem like a daunting task to choose, but it can be made easier by hiring an exceptional team of landscaping professionals, like Northern Virginia Landscaping. From Oakton to Alexandria, we have served clients across the Northern VA area providing them with beautifully-designed softscape arrangements and well-built hardscape additions, such as patios, gazebos, and decks. If you are thinking about upgrading your yard into a newly-formed garden, consider some of our style and design suggestions below:

Container Garden

For those who desire a garden that takes up minimal space, or only have a small, enclosed space available, such as small yard, deck, or patio, then a container garden may be the right choice for you. The idea here is limiting the amount of space each plant takes by placing them in pots or raised beds in sizes and arrangements of your choice.

Kitchen Garden

For the practical and green-conscious, a kitchen garden would make a perfect arrangement for your backyard. It is mainly composed of fruits, vegetables, and herbs, inspiring a healthy, organic diet and sustainable lifestyle. Not only does it attribute to providing you with fresh produce, a kitchen garden can also have an attractive aesthetic, especially when arranged along with a blend of different flower plants.

Tropical Garden

For a truly unique garden, a tropical garden is your best choice. With beautiful arrangements of alluring and lush plants, like needle palm trees, bamboo, as well as broad-leaf plants like Colocasia and Banana (musa basjoo) trees, all of which have the ability to withstand the various temperatures that Virginia has to offer.

Water Garden

Nothing sounds or looks more serene than water flowing beside an arrangement of crisp, green plants and bright flowers. The key focus in this garden design is a body of water, such as a stream or a pond, that is complemented by a variety of plants that have a tranquil aesthetic, as well as a hydrophilic effect, which helps control the flow and intensity of nearby water. While most properties do not have a natural pond or stream, a team of professionals at Northern Virginia Landscaping can help you install a water garden design that extends the overall beauty of your yard.

Shade Garden

If you have a yard that is shaded by tall trees, then this garden type can help provide you with a quiet, verdant escape from the heat and stress of a hot Virginia summer. Plants that grow in the shade are few in number, but with the right landscaping, can still create a yard that is abundant in color and greenery.
