Small Yard Landscape Ideas

Small yard landscaping is a matter of proportions. It usually consists of using less plants overall, plus more diminutive palms and trees.

A well thought-out plan can create a big impact on a small scale. Here are collections of South Florida plants to do just that.

These groupings are based on a one-story house, which is more common here. But fior a two-story you can simply substitute somewhat taller accents or specimen plants. All are for full to part sun unless noted.

Collection #1

1. Snowbush – accent

2. Hibiscus – accent

3. Japanese fern tree

4. Society garlic – border, groundcover

5. Juniper – foundation, groundcover

6. Ann Marie lantana – border, accent, groundcover

7. Indian hawthorne – foundation

8. Nora Grant ixora – accent

9. Viburnum odoratissimum – hedge

As always, you can choose plants from other collections to customize your own design. And you can add more things if you have the space.
