When you begin to revamp your yard or garden, there comes a time to decide what exactly you’ll be growing. You’ll want plants that are hearty, beautiful and fragrant to grace your yard.

Choose Hearty

First, you can begin by planting ground-cover roses. These bountiful, low-growing rose varieties can provide plenty of flowers throughout the year. They tend to be very low maintenance and are drought-tolerant as well. They are great for any garden bed or container garden.

Another hearty favorite is red yucca. This plant can survive in high heat and is incredibly strong-willed. It has a bluish-gray, succulent base with long stalks that shoot up near six fee that bear red-ish, tube-shaped flowers. They are virtually guaranteed to catch the eye of any passerby.

Choose Vines

Next, you may want to throw in some vining plants. The classic trumpet vine is as tough as nails and fast-growing. Plant this vine near a trellis, fence or any vertical surface, and let it do its thing. Make sure to prune and maintain regularly; otherwise this beauty can be a bit invasive.

Choose Fragrance & Color

For a fragrant eye-catcher, you may want to turn to a classic English lavender. This plant is good for anything from a walkway border to a rock garden. It flowers throughout the end of spring and into summer and has an enchanting fragrance. There are smaller varieties that are good for container planting, as well as larger varieties that can be a beautiful hedge. When you want to add some great evergreen flavor to your garden, you’ll find purple pixie to be an appropriate addition. Purple pixie is great as a dominant ground cover or as an accent in a tall planter. It has spectacular color year-round.

Choose Blankets

Blanket flowers are a great choice for perennial color, and they attract butterflies to your garden. They also happen to be an incredibly hearty grower and resist rabbits and deer. They also come in a number of different colors, from bright yellow, gold and red hues. A classic friend to any garden.

With this list of hearty, brilliant and fragrant plants, your garden will be the talk of the town. You’ll have beautiful flowers, enchanting smells and spectacular evergreens all around.

CUSTOMER-FOCUSED REAL ESTATE

Hi! Thanks for visiting my website! I know there are 1000's of real estate websites, so I'm SUPER HAPPY that you're on mine!

To make a long story short, I've been a realtor for over 14 years. I was also an elementary school teacher and registered nurse in the past, but real estate just won over my heart. I absolutely LOVE what I do and get so much joy out of helping customers buy and/or sell their homes. I've been fortunate that I've worked with so many awesome people who ended up becoming my friends long after the papers were signed and the deal was finished. :)

I give EXCEPTIONAL service and treat every customer like they are my only one. My ability to go above and beyond for my customers is partly just by nature, and partly because I am selective about who I assist. The relationship between a Realtor and a customer must be one of mutual respect, understanding, and trust. Therefore, all three traits must be present for both of us to have a positive experience and reach your ultimate real estate goals.

I am honest, hardworking, intelligent, and excellent at what I do. However, this isn't about me...it's about YOU, the customer. So, it's vital for YOU to trust in my character and abilities to represent you in one of the biggest moments of YOUR life. Bottom-line...I only work with people who WANT to work with me...period.

If you're looking for a straight-forward professional who's been in this crazy (but fun) business for a long time and will be in your corner every step of the process, you're on the right track. Trust me when I say that who you choose to work with DOES matter...more than you know!

Call me any time and we can chat! I'm full-time (no, I don't sell candles or oils or Avon on the side...not that anything is wrong with any of that)...but I am 100% REAL ESTATE FOCUSED. So, I'm always here to answer any questions you may have.

How can I help YOU today? :)
