Landscape Design - Choosing Plants

Choosing the right plants and ornamental trees and bushes are essential in creating a front or backyard landscape that is both long lasting and sustainable. At Go Green we understand that plant choices can be manipulated accordingly to achieve the desired look and feel for each client. Plants can be combined and used in several ways providing solutions to specific problems such as noise control and erosion control. When choosing plants we consider every aspect of your yard in order to ascertain the best choice. Tall trees give shade while a series of sheared shrub can serve as a screen or a hedge for privacy. A wide variety of ornamental plants can be used as a focal point promoting a backyard theme or a pleasant garden ambience.

Whether plants are meant to be useful or simply as a decorative accent, proper landscaping techniques are essential to achieve a perfect balance of colors, textures and structures.

With Go Green Landscaping’s expertise in choosing plants that are right for towns like Georgetown Ontario, Milton Ontario, Georgetown Ontario, Oakville Ontario and Campbellville Ontario, homeowners will know which plants to propagate based on suitability to the weather and land properties. Considerations such as the plant’s growth habits and characteristics are also studied and analyzed. Factors such as size of plants, age of maturity, light requirements, heat tolerance, soil preference and basic propagation properties are all part of a sustainable and green softscape design.  We know that a plant that will grow perfectly in Oakville may not flourish at all in Georgetown and thus make suggestions accordingly.

Go Green Landscaping has a plant database knowledge which includes a huge selection of plant types including trees, shrubs, perennials, flowers and ornamentals. We will also provide you with important knowledge including maintenance and proper plant care.

If you want a garden that requires low maintenance then natural plants are perfect. Instead of ornamentals, grow evergreen shrubberies or ground cover plants which only require occasional watering and trimming.

It’s important to choose the right varieties that will thrive well in these towns. Bright and colorful flowering plants can be grouped together to create a feast for the eyes. For front yards, simple and neutral colors are recommended to avoid an overpowering effect. It has to blend well with patios and walkways to induce a welcoming atmosphere. Adding accents is another option if you want to set a catchy and dramatic exterior. Hanging plants and displaying ornamentals and plant boxes with vivid floral colors are designed to get attention.
