Why A Perennial Garden Is A Great Home Addition

If you’re looking for an affordable way to bring your property to life this summer, consider a perennial garden! A great investment, perennials are easy to plant. All they need to thrive is light water and hearty soil. They grow bigger and more beautiful with time. One of the biggest selling features is that perennials are easy to take care of year in and year out.

Unlike more expensive investments and home renovations, a garden is a space where you can afford to try new things and mix it up. No two perennial gardens are exactly alike, so designing a garden in your front or backyard is a great opportunity to express your personality and design aesthetic.


One of the best ways to make your garden pop and express your creativity is with colour. Perennials come in almost every color. With the help of Aden Earthworks design experts, you can ensure that the perennials compliment the colour scheme of your home. Be courageous and add a few bold-coloured eye-catching perennials that really pop. For bright colours, think about planting Coreopsis, Rudbeckia, Lilies, Cone-flowers and Asiatics. If you prefer more muted colours, pick lots of white and violet perennials. Let your true colours show – literally!

Variety is the spice of life. Luckily, perennials come in a wide variety of sizes. You can choose perennials from 3 height categories: short, medium and tall. Low growing perennials like Sedum are frequently used in rock gardens, as ground covers and as edging plants. Tall, towering perennials like Hollyhocks, Mullein and various ornamental grasses add structure to gardens and make them look more impressive. Many people prefer perennials that grow to a medium height, like a dwarf coreopsis, Peonies, Lupines and Shasta Daisies. Aden Earthworks design team will help you choose a blend of perennials so that your garden looks balanced and beautiful.

More than just beautiful, perennials add another dimension to your garden — smell! Many perennials have a sweet fragrance, you just need to know which ones to pick. That’s where the guidance of your gardening team at Aden Earthworks comes in. Perennials like Roses, Phlox and Peonies look just as good as they smell. You and your guests will enjoy the soft scents that float through your garden.

Plain property fronts and backyards can be transformed with the addition of a well-designed perennial garden. To ensure that you get the most out of your garden, it’s important to work with experts that understand how to grow healthy perennials, when to plant them to maximize flowering time, and how to prevent your perennials from failing to thrive.
