Highlands NC Homes Choosing Plants Wisely

Choosing plants wisely is an important topic for many owners of Highlands NC homes.  This is the time of year when many of us are planning our summer gardens and choosing flowers that will appeal to our senses while suiting our environment is important.  Some plants thrive in the sun while others thrive in the shade.  Her in the Highlands area we are lucky to have a wealth of knowledge at our fingertips, from those well-versed in what works and what doesn’t.


If you own a vacation home in Highlands NC and do not employ a landscape company to take care of your garden needs then you probably want to plant low-maintenance flowers and greenery.  There are many plants that need little water, with the ability to survive on their own.  If you are not at your vacation home a lot these types of plants make sense.  Of course, if you have irrigation in place your flowers can be watered whether you are here or afar.


When planning your summer garden consider using the Highlands Botanical Garden, the Laurel Garden Club, and/or the Highlands Botanical Society as resources.  These organizations have knowledgeable members and offer a great deal of education as well.  The Highlands area is alive with fantastic gardens in the summer and knowing what to plant and what will thrive on your property will help you fulfill your goals.
