Design Suggestions for Palm Trees in Wilmington, NC
Sometimes, you have a vague notion that you want to enhance the landscaping at your home but don’t know where to begin. Unless you have natural horticultural talent, you need the help of gardening professionals to help you execute a plan that is right for your property. To begin this process, consider the following questions:
- Are you trying to create a sense of privacy around your home?
- Do you have enough space to handle a 50-foot or taller palm tree when it matures?
- Do you have a shady area, which many palm trees prefer?
If you answered “yes” to these questions but still feel confused about which one to select, we have photos of several palm tree designs to spark your own landscaping plan. Some of the palm trees, which thrive in our area, include:
- European and windmill
- Sabal palmetto
As you can see from these photos, you can tuck a gardening ornament into the palm’s greenery to create a personal oasis. If you want a shield with some open spaces, one of the repetitive designs might work well on your property. Visit our Facebook and Twitter pages, and let us know your favorite!
