Two Unique Landscaping Ideas

While driving home you might see nothing more than close-cropped green lawns, home after home. Looking around your suburban neighborhood, other than a few well-placed flower and shrubs along the front of the house, you are convinced that none have any new landscaping ideas.

Sure, this "standard issue" method of landscaping is far short of hideous, but it really isn't particularly unique, either.

Have you ever considered a butterfly garden or a landscaping plan based on fragrant flowers? Don't you think this is at least a bit more interesting? There are landscaping ideas that will help your home stand out as something original in a green sea of sameness. Two very interesting landscaping ideas are butterfly gardens and the use of fragrant plants.

To attract a large number of butterflies, you need to know how to position and plant flowers. Not only are the flowers beautiful in their own right, but the butterflies add a gorgeous living component to the yard, making this one of those landscaping ideas that are perfect for those who have a great appreciation for natural beauty.

Everyone loves the idea of a beautiful flower garden. The butterfly garden captures all of the same attractiveness while adding an additional element that really makes it stand out as something special.

Another of the more unique landscaping ideas you are likely to encounter is the carefully orchestrated use of fragrant plants in the design of your yard. Usually we think of landscaping a purely visual form of expression. To add a olfactory element to the yard, try focusing on fragrant plants.

There are not many landscaping ideas that can satisfy multiple senses at once, but fragrant plants are one way of doing just that. The attractive plants will satisfy your sense of aesthetics while simultaneously providing an enjoyable aroma.

Having another a bright green lawn just like the neighbors is perfectly alright.  But if you want to do something that make yourself stands out a bit, you will need new ideas. If you are searching for a unique way to differentiate yourself from the other homeowners in your area, you might want to consider either of these interesting and unique landscaping ideas. Butterfly gardens and fragrant plants are two spectacular ways of doing something out of the ordinary, yet highly attractive, with your outdoor space.
