Choosing native plants is always a good choice. They will usually grow stronger and require less upkeep, reducing your maintenance needs and cost.

Potted plants are a great way to add different shapes, colors, sizes, and heights to your landscape. Potted plants can add splashes of color to different yard areas, with whites and pinks popular choices for summer months. And with potted plants you can swap them around and change them with the seasons.
