    Please mark one or two items within each area of focus.


    ___ More Common Plant Varieties - readily available, faster growth in many cases, long history of performanceMore Uncommon Plant Varieties - unique, interesting, new varieties, in certain instances more difficult to find & estimateUse Native Plants whenever possible - good for our environment & wildlife, self-sustainable, in many instances are less showy or tidy due to lack of directed hybridization, sometimes more difficult to find in smaller sizesCreate a well-balanced mixed between the unique and the familiar, in essence letting personal interests in individual plants dictate the overall mix


    Mostly Evergreen Plants - more winter interest, less flowers, more consistent year-round appearance, lends a more formal appearance, many ornamental grasses provide winter interest as wellMostly Deciduous Plants - less winter interest, more spring/summer/fall appeal, spectacular flowers, lends a softer, more natural appearance, may seem barren in winterA mix of Evergreen and Deciduous Plants


    Plants primarily grown for their flowers - slightly higher maintenance in certain instances, long bloom time for many varietiesPlants primarily grown for their foliage – typically lower maintenance, flowers may be insignificant or non-existent, foliage color or texture is the primary aestheticA well-balanced mix of plants grown for their flowers and their foliage.


    Groundcover - lower long term maintenance, less water (many xeric options available), no mowingLawn - higher long term maintenance and cost (mowing, watering, fertilizing), suited for wide variety of activities


    Rock - longest life, wind and erosion proof, can be difficult to clear debris, difficult to add plantsWood mulch – numerous colors and textures to choose from, wind and erosion resistant, adds nutrients to soil and holds moisture. New layer is recommended every 1-2 yearsNo mulch - high likelihood of ongoing weed problems. Groundcover plantings or hardscape is recommended if no mulch is used.


    Rock/Stone edging - longest life, attractive, natural appearanceBenderboard edging – long life, composite, blends into the landscape, no sharp edges for little feet or pawsSteel edging - long life, simple, formal appearance, maintains clear boundaries between lawn and gardensNo edging - easiest to mow next to, must be redefined on an ongoing basis, may have issues with grass encroaching from adjacent lawn areas


    Incorporate natural rock into the landscape - attractive, natural appearance, provides additional interest between plantings groups/areas.No accent rocks - may seem barren in winter, can always be added in subsequent phases.
