This modern gardening philosophy plays matchmaker in the landscape, placing plants in a spot where they’ll naturally thrive — with minimal input from the gardener. The result is a landscape design that’s a breeze to maintain.
BENEFITS OF RIGHT PLANT, RIGHT PLACE
When you put the right plant in the right place, giving it nearly ideal growing conditions, several things happen:
- Plants establish quickly, growing and bulking up
- Plants produce healthy root systems and steady top growth
- Plants withstand attack by insects and diseases. Plants in the wrong place have a compromised immune system, if you will, and when a bug comes, they’re ripe for the infecting.
The biggest investment you’ll make when you tackle right plant, right place gardening occurs before you stick trowel into soil. Planning is the key to success with this concept. By investing more time before planting, you’ll invest less time maintaining plantings. You’ll be gardening smarter and greener — and saving money, too.
