You don’t have to have a large area to work with in order to create a welcoming garden design. At Aardweg Landscaping, we can create an exiting mailbox garden that will give your yard visual interest while also enhancing curb appeal.
You mailbox garden can be as simple or elaborate as you dare. Any element used in traditional landscaping projects can also be used to create a mailbox garden. You can create a simple flower garden using colorful specimens such as Gerber daisies, chrysanthemum and peony for an informal look. A more formal garden could be planned with the use of flowering shrubs, hostas and ivy with a few marigolds or petunias sprinkled in for color.
Why not consider garden design that gives the illusion of a wooded area? Use ferns along with bleeding heart and foam flower to create dense foliage that will remind you of a walk in the forest. A romantic garden full of daylillies and roses might be ideal if you are trying to complement one of the Main Line’s cottage-style houses.
A mailbox garden doesn’t have to consist of only plants. You can always incorporate landscape features such as solar lighting, gazing balls or birdhouses to set off your mailbox nicely. Surround your garden with brick pavers, vinyl fencing or natural stone to help tie the garden design together and give it a distinct border.
