They say, “You can’t judge a book by its cover,” but we believe you can certainly judge a home by its front yard. Luxury landscaping doesn’t need to be complicated; however, it does need some sort of reason to the rhyme. Hydrangeas and hyacinths thrive in cool months and look beautiful together. If you’re looking to update your luxury landscape designs, follow these tips for growing and caring for these bright florals.
Hyacinths release a delicious aroma through the air. Several flowers bloom from one bulb in a bell shape, making them excellent space fillers for small lots and those who were born without a green thumb. Ideally, you should plant bulbs during crisp autumn months, so by the time spring rolls around, your flowers are starting to bloom.
Plant bulbs four inches deep in somewhat fertile, moderately depleted soil. Keep bulbs about three inches apart so they have room to root. Give bulbs a healthy drink of water when you’re satisfied with their placement. During a dry Las Vegas autumn, you’ll want to protect your luxury landscaping by watering the bulbs just enough to keep them moist. Be careful not to water them too often, as these delicate flowers are susceptible to bulb rot and gray mold.
Add some depth to your luxury front yard landscape by mixing a few different colors of hyacinths in your garden. Don’t worry about too many colors looking excessive. Let’s be honest—what are spring garden parties without colorful, lush flowers greeting your guests?
Your perfect spring garden party won’t be a hit without the old-fashion appeal hydrangeas bring. These elegant ladies grow on a large head, and they will make your yard the luxury landscaping design the envy of the neighborhood. We’ll let you in on a little secret: they’re not hard to care for.
These babes are flexible, so if you missed the autumn planting season, it’s not too late to plant them in spring. Like many ladies, they enjoy a luxury lifestyle. Provide them with moderately moist and rich soil and they will thrive. Hydrangeas are right at home in Las Vegas as they enjoy blooming in morning sunshine and afternoon shade.
Give hydrangeas three to 10 feet of space in between bulbs. Dig a hole as deep as the root ball but about three times as wide. Once you place the root, cover it with soil and water. Hydrangeas need lots of water in the Las Vegas heat.
See how simple these flowers are? Easy they may be, but small details like thriving gardens add value to your luxury real estate lot.
