Is your mailbox simply a necessary structure in your Philadelphia landscaping design, or is it rather an opportunity to unleash your personality in gardening artistry?
Whether you choose to grow a small vine on the post your mailbox sits on, or to surround your mailbox with annual flowers that can be changed out each year — it’s time to elevate mailbox garden areas from their mundane existence to something more dramatic.
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.
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.
There are so many possibilities for making your mailbox garden area a key player in your overall Philadelphia landscaping design. With the instant colorful impact it can bring to your yard, you may wonder why you didn’t think of it before!
