For years people have been tending flower gardens—maybe it’s the allure of the blooms, or perhaps it’s the challenge of growing the perfect rose, or maybe you just want to add a splash of color to the front of your home. Whatever the motivation, flowers are an excellent addition to all types of gardens.

The variety of flowers available can make selecting which ones you will use in your garden a daunting task. The best flower garden designs incorporate perennials, annuals, bulbs and companion plants, all tied together by a strong color scheme or design style. When designing a flower garden, you should start by determining what flowers will grow well on your property. Factors such as light, temperatures, soil quality and more will impact how well the flowers perform.
