Create Your Perfect Outdoor Oasis: Designing with Shade-Providing Plants

As winter fades away and temperatures climb, it’s time to transform your outdoor space into a cool and inviting retreat, shaded by lush greenery. Grasshopper Gardens offers a comprehensive selection of plants to help you craft the ideal landscape, tailored to your vision.

Designing for Shade

When envisioning your outdoor oasis, consider the broader scope of your landscape design. Determine the desired amount of shade and ensure functionality aligns with aesthetics.

Enhancing Shade with Shrubs

Introduce shade along pathways and walkways with strategically placed shrubs. Opt for uniformity by selecting the same species of shrubs for a cohesive look. Shrubs ranging from 1 to 3 feet in height offer optimal coverage, creating inviting shaded areas throughout your outdoor space.

Vine-Covered Arbors: Beauty and Shade Combined

Elevate the allure of your outdoor area with a vine-covered arbor. Not only do these structures add beauty to your landscape, but they also provide ample shade as vines twist and climb. Explore vine species that offer blooming flowers, enhancing the aesthetic appeal of your outdoor sanctuary.

Harnessing Shade with Trees

Trees stand as bold guardians against the sun, offering natural shade and enhancing the ambiance of your landscape. Strategically position trees to create shaded pockets, balancing sun-drenched areas with cool retreats. Along the borders of your landscape, trees can create a attractive, shaded edge, allowing the central space to bask in sunlight.
