Many people love to landscape their property with the help of massive and beautiful trees. As these grow up and become majestic entities with personalities of their own, you would start wondering how to go about landscaping around trees to achieve a more harmonious look and at the same time protect these trees from parasites and other plants that could interfere with their ability to draw water and nutrients from the earth.
Landscaping Around Trees Can Be Done In Many Ways
Though there are two schools of thought on this aspect, most people would prefer to use landscaping around trees mainly because it achieve a two-in-one objective, i.e. it gives the property a distinguished look and it definitely serves the purpose of taking care of the trees. There are many ways in which landscaping around trees can be done with great success.
Here Are Some Landscaping Ideas:
1. Use perennial flowering plants – this is a hot favorite in the choice for landscaping around trees because it provides excellent protection for the trees (the roots of these flowers are too shallow to create any real threat to the water supply of the larger trees) and at the same time, it creates an exceptional esthetic impact.
2. Put little fences around your trees – you could enclose your trees with miniature fences creating tiny gardens at the base of every tree. There the landscaping around trees would involve adding small statuettes, stones, decorations, etc creating a little masterpiece within each enclosure. The outside fencing could allow sitting arrangements so anyone could come and enjoy the shade of the tree as well as the beauty of the garden from this particular location.
3. Have your own miniature zoos – you could house a couple of bunnies or set up an intricate aviary at the base of the tree on your property. The choices are endless if you look at it – you could have something different for every tree on your property or you could have mirror arrangement for each one of these. Whatever it would be, the impact on the overall look of your garden would be fascinating.
Lastly, if you do not have the inclination of using any of these ideas, you could always plant a lawn around the trees. Have the enclosure drawn up as this would give the boundary of the lawn, and then plant the best available grass that thrives in the shade. This would solve all your problems – both esthetic and about the protection of the trees.
