I love to plant bulbs in the fall and receive the treat of bloom in the spring or summer. Allium make a bold statement and the bees enjoy them too. When the color fades you can cut them down to tidy up the look of your beds. You can compost them or let the kids use them as swords.
Are you trying to make changes to your landscape? Are you overwhelmed as to the choices like plant material? Consider this,
Will it like my location?
Will it look well with the rest of our landscape and home?
Will it offer year around interest?
Will I kill it accidentally?
Can it handle the occasional kid intervention or random dog urine?
How much should I buy?
I have an idea. As easy way to do it yourself without the help of a professional is to buy more of less. Pick a plant that you love, that has a long interest (say May -July bloom) that likes your location (sun, shade) and buy a lot of it.
If want or need help contact me and I can talk with you over the phone to see what plan of action you may need. A simple on site consult or a make over workshop. Both are fun and affordable. We can come up with solutions that work for your site and family. Spend your money wisely and have a great plan before you buy.
