A garden feels incomplete and sometimes even empty without trees in it. Moreover, even the trees look empty without beautiful flowers under it. Flowers under the trees act as a grace enhancer of the tree and the trees with flowers act as a grace enhancer of the whole garden.
However, not all plants can grow under a tree because as the tree grows it gets way bigger in size and soaks all available water in the soil which makes it difficult for plants to grow under them due to lack of availability of sunlight and water.
Planting Under The Trees
Although it sounds simple but planting under a tree is a really hard job to do and without doing it your landscape just can’t have that wow factor.
But by following simple methods and tips you can learn this concept very easily!
#1. Researching About Plants
Not every plant is able to grow under a tree. If the tree is small then you may go for planting a bunch of flowers and plantations under it but once it grows then you have to change that.
As a tree grows its roots become bigger and the needs of the tree also grow. It starts to absorb a high amount of water and sunlight and due to this, there is nothing left for small plants under it due to which they start dying.
So, before you start planting various flowers under a tree do a proper research about them. Only those plantations can flourish under a tree which requires less amount of water and sunlight.
#2. Be Wise While Planting
No matter how hard a tree looks from outer but in actual, the trees are very sensitive from inside especially from its roots. A small damage to the roots of a tree can bring its death in the near future.
Therefore, you should always do plantation under a tree by taking necessary precautions and with an optimum care of the tree as well as the plantations.
#3. Go From Small To Big
The idea here is not to rush things up and start planting lots and lots of plantation under a single tree. This may seem tempting but believe me, it will not work and in actual, is very harmful to the trees as well as the plantations you plan on planting under a tree.
You should start with small amount of plantations under a number of trees and as the tree grows you can start planting more plantations under it. This will ensure optimum growth for both the tree as well as the vegetation under it.
#4. Make It Colorful
Imagine having a tree with single color plantations under it. Not only it sounds dull but it looks dull as well. You should always plant a variety of plantations instead of doing plantation of a single variety.
This will bring in diversification in nature as well as add lots of colors to your garden making it really beautiful.
#5. Random Plantations
Instead of planting the vegetation in a single way or by a single method you should try random plantation. Naturally, it will provide a better look if flowers are planted under a tree at random place instead of flowers planted in a single way such as in a circle around every tree.
Furthermore, random targeting will make your tree look more filled with a variety of plants and will reduce the emptiness under a tree.
#6. Plan For All Types Of Weathers
It is a must that you do full research about all types of weather in your area or where your garden is and do the plantation accordingly.
Ideally, you should opt for all season plants or with the plants that suit to the weather conditions of your area. This will ensure a mesmerizing look at your garden 365 days a year.
#7. Enhance The Natural Beauty
Gardening is an art and art is all about creativity and innovation. The more innovative and creative you can be the more wonderful your garden look and the more uniqueness it will possess.
So, in order to stand out, you should take help of various accessories of gardening as well instead of just planting a variety of plantations and flowers.
#8. Stay Consistent
It’s all about consistency in the end. The more you stay consistent at it the more fruitful results you will obtain in the end. Vegetation needs proper and consistent care in order to bloom.
If you can provide that continuously then you can rest assured that it will bring in wonders when it rips.
