Aardweg Landscaping Main Line Formal Garden

Formal garden – If your penchant in design tends toward the more stately, then think about a stone or brick mailbox structure, surrounded by lush, well-tended greenery such as miniature shrubs, sedums or creeping thyme, “mulched” with natural materials in a subtle border.


Aardweg Landscaping Butterfly Garden

Butterfly garden – In the direction of more informal tastes, the butterfly garden offers lovely flowers that attract vibrantly-hued winged visitors for an even richer experience in your Philadelphia landscaping design. Excellent flower choices for this garden include bee balm, hibiscus, daisies, rudbeckia, salvia, coreopsis, asclepias, trumpet vine and jasmine.
