Top 7 recommendations from professionals

Which plants to plant along the tracks: the main rule is the combination of beauty and convenience.

The answer to this question depends on the style and size of the plot, on the nature of its owner and on his wishes. The main principle that should be adhered to is the widest possible, convenient passage and harmonious combinations of flower crops.

Here are the best advice from professional landscapers for those who dream of an ideal decoration for their paths.

  1. Plant characteristics

Using improper for framing the paths of a plant, one can only exacerbate the situation by making the movement around the site difficult and caring for it tedious; therefore, it is recommended to select certain types of crops that have the properties presented below.

  1. Low growth

If the plants are too high, they will impede movement and limit visibility. Cultures with a more interesting architecture can be located behind low bushes in the depths of the flower beds to create a contrast of heights. Such a technique will allow you to visually expand the space.

  1. Absence of thorns and thorns

There is nothing worse than being scratched by plants, walking along the path, so it is better to plant flowers with thorns away from the passage in order to avoid injuries. Another option is to create a “fence” along the path from cultures similar to chistetsu.

  1. Aroma

Flowering plants with a pleasant smell can create a special sensory connection of the owner with his garden. Even if you are sensitive to strong spirits, you can pick up cultures individually. To create a delightful fragrant cloud, leaf geranium, lemon, rose, mint and lavender will suit, as well as oval-leaved prostenar.

  1. Resistance to drought and mechanical stress

When choosing colors, you need to take into account that the heat reflected by the paths can adversely affect them, and therefore they must tolerate heat and aridity well. In addition, crops for planting along the pathways must be selected so that they can withstand careless trampling.

Landscape designers also advise using ground cover fragrant plants between stones and tiles: the smell will be released when attacking them. For this purpose, you can choose the Corsican mint, raspberry thyme or stalk.

  1. Tactility

Along with fragrant plants for framing paths on the site, cultures that are soft and pleasant to the touch will suit. Especially useful this design will be for children: they will have the opportunity to become closer to nature and learn more about it. Caution: some types of fountain grass, including its red variety, are recognized as invasive plants.

  1. Continuous flowering

This advice may seem obvious, but such an important detail can easily be overlooked. Carefully make sure that the garden is always blossomed with several crops. To achieve this effect, each of the plants should bloom for at least two seasons.
