Lavender is the mecca of all garden plants. Essential oil gurus swear by Lavender for it’s antibiotic properties, sweet aroma, and it’s ability to soothe even the worst of sunburns. While these great things are often mentioned when discussing lavender, it is often ignored that lavender actually makes a great landscaping tool. Bring this beautiful flower to your yard today!
Flower Bed. Brighten up a boring flower bed with a combination of orange and purple flowers. Lavender grows well with poppies and roses. The contrast looks beautiful, as well!
Sloped Spaces. Sloped spaces can truly be a pain in the neck when it comes to landscaping. Surprisingly, lavender thrives in areas where the ground slopes, because they remain well drained and don’t require a lot of moisturizer.
Near Fences. Grow your lavender near a fence. Cool colors (like the purple of lavender) actually create the allusion of a larger space. Pair with pink flowers or climbing roses!
As a Living Fence. Pick a tall growing variety such as French Lavender. Because lavender is pest proof, and essentially deer-resistant, it makes the perfect living fence for your yard.
Along Your Pathway. Create a pathway straight out of a magazine and line it with lush lavender. Lavender loves heat, and loves the heat radiated from the cement pathway.
