Dealing with deer
One of the keys to the success of Michigan landscape is a way to keep the deer from an excess of running your garden and eat all their crops. If there is a large population of deer where you live, you can keep under control the damage of plants, devoting much of its space to the deer species undesirable. Fortunately, for landscaping in front yards, the road can help reduce deer intrusion. If you like some degree of sightings of deer and are open to the loss of part of its plantations, you can still plant more attractive plants along the perimeter of your property. Elsewhere, columbine plant, digitalis, nasturtium, hyacinth, marigold and lavender. If you incorporate herbs or vegetables in your landscape, you can safely plant sage, thyme, dill, cucumber, eggplant, peppers and rhubarb.
Attracting beneficial insects
To further enrich your front yard landscape, select native plants that attract beneficial insects such as pollinators or natural enemies of pests. Follow the same design principles as if it were any landscape, creating a harmonious balance of plant sizes, colors and textures according to the front of his house. If you plan a traditional lawn, the use of these plants in the foundation planting in front of his house along the way and perhaps a few "islands" of flowering plants elsewhere in the patio. Include flowering plants native to Michigan as the hyssop yellow, blue lobelia, Riddell goldenrod, yellow coneflower golden Alexanders. From the names alone, you can see the variety of colors available from flowering plants native to Michigan. By incorporating a few in the edible landscape, be sure to include wild strawberries or wild onion, both excellent for attracting beneficial insects.
Prudence rather Trees
Only a few well placed trees well complete a wonderful landscape garden, and Michigan's climate lends itself well to a wide variety of conifers and deciduous trees. If you opt for a conifer, get to enjoy greenery throughout the year, a welcome benefit for the Michigan winter season relatively long. Whatever kind of tree you choose, keep in mind both aesthetic and practical considerations when choosing your location. If you have a low and wide ranch style home, a relatively high tree, planted at one end, may well frame, both providing a visual representation of an end to the horizontal scan lines and making the house appear higher . When selecting a planting site, we must also take into account soil acidity, salt content and level of humidity, sunlight and any nearby telephone poles or obstructions.
