Landscape Ideas For
The Shade

When planting shade plants, double check to make sure they are on seperate sprinkler valves and timers so that they don't get watered as frequently as the plants in full sun.

This may seem obvious, but many a professional landscaper, when they were in a hurry, have made this very basic mistake.

The result is plants that have too much water and rot.

Check Light Availability

Most shrubs can grow in both sun and shade to varying degrees.

Many flowering shrubs, however, tend to need some sun to flower.

Be sure to double check the amount of light you have available to the shrubs you are planning to plant so you are happy with the outcome.
