There are so many different plants available that it’s sometimes difficult to choose, so often it helps to decide on a “theme” of what you’re looking for. Of course some of the obvious ones are still the best, like a Butterfly Garden which features flowers that attract butterflies.
Gardens don’t have to be huge, so for each theme I’ve created 2 options, a smaller 4′-5′ “Accent Garden” that you can fill a little niche of your yard. And if you have a lot of space, you can create a “Feature Garden.” Besides space, budget may be a deciding factor, so I’ve included an estimate of the cost involved with the plants and possible accessories (landscape fabric, mulch, edging, etc. are optional and not included in the estimate).
