Could this gorgeous Florida estate be any better of an example for how to use landscaping bushes to beautify your property. Obviously very few of us have a stunning backyard like this one; however, that does not mean that we can't take inspiration and advice from how the designed their landscaping and translate it into our own (smaller) backyard oasis. My favorite part of their landscape is the tall and narrow evergreen trees that line their grand driveway and are interspersed throughout the rest of the yard. They are very reminiscent of the countryside I saw when visiting Tuscany a few years ago, and give an old world elegance to any design.
When we took on this front yard landscaping makeover project, the homeowner had one specific request — they wanted a ton of flowering shrubs to add color and vibrancy to the otherwise monochromatic exterior of the house. I loved the idea of adding fun pops of color throughout the ground cover and short trees because it would look lovely against the neutral siding. We started by carving out dedicated beds that curved around the foundation of the home. We planted a base layer of evergreen bushes so that there would be vibrant color against the house all year round and not just in the spring. Next we began incorporating colorful flowering landscaping shrubs nestled between our first layer of bushes.
