Do you want to add some variety and attraction in your garden? You can decorate both your front as well as back yards by trying out some innovative ideas. Here are few glimpses of them.
Welcome Guests with Flowers: As flowers have the power to welcome your guests warmly, you can try them out in the entrance.

Rambling Vines: Clematis can be used as rambling vines as it offers blue, purple, red, pink or white blossoms. You can grow them in a container; scramble them over shrubs and perennials. You can plant the clematis during fall or spring as the weather remains cool during these seasons. You can use fertilizers every month during summer and spring. Some of the flowers bloom from old growth and some from the new growth. You should keep a check when you are buying and when you require pruning them.
Decorate Driveway: You can easily hide your driveway by carefully choosing your materials. You can create a raised island within the lawn just at the center of the drive.
