Moving to the suburbs has really opened up my eyes to the world of gardening and its quickly becoming a new hobby of mine! I recently wrote a blog post about what I’ve already learned about potted plants but today I’m going to talk about exterior landscaping and give you guys a recap of the garden tour I shared on Instagram stories yesterday!

It may seem strange to talk about gardening when we’re already so far into summer but this is actually a really great time to take a look at your landscaping and garden and think about what changes you want to make for the next year. This is not only because you can truly see what areas need more greenery but the Fall season is actually a really ideal time to plant new perennials. It allows the plants to get settled and establish their roots so that the following year they’ll ready to bloom nice and big! You just want to make sure you get any new perennials in before the ground freezes!

With that being said, I figured it was a great time to share a tour of our garden that was done by a professional landscape architect. I did a walking tour on my stories the other day but wanted to recap everything here as well! Below I’m sharing a photo, the name and a little info about most of the perennials have growing in our backyard for anyone looking for ideas for their gardens!

This brass tube vase makes the perfect centerpiece for a long dining table or console! 💐 I filled it with yellow, pink and white faux spring florals but you can use real flowers! How pretty would some tulips look?! There are so many ways you can fill this piece. A few tips to get this look:
Pick three colors to work with
Pick two statement flowers 
Pick three “filler” florals or greenery
Cut your faux floral stems to get a variety of lengths. 
I like using faux florals because you can easily manipulate the direction of the stems to get a more wildflower look. Also, they’re easier to keep alive 😉
