It is not uncommon for a beautiful and tall tree to be the star of your landscape. Whether it is a large, established tree that has been part of your yard for decades or a freshly planted tree with significant meaning, you can make the tree look its best by landscaping around it. Today, we are going to share five of our favorite ideas for landscaping around trees.
5 Ideas for Landscaping Around Trees
1. Surround it With Plants
When you love the look of a classic landscape design, choose to showcase your favorite trees by surrounding them with a ring of beautiful and bright flowers. Artificial outdoor plants and flowers are a great choice for this application because you don’t have to worry about the roots of either the flowers or tree being compromised and sun and shade are never a problem. Simply choose a handful of our gorgeous outdoor plants and place them in the soil surrounding the tree. Top it off with rocks or mulch for a carefully landscaped look.
2. Add A Tree Bench
Do you love the idea of sitting beneath your special tree, gazing out at the rest of your yard? If so, a tree bench may be just what you are looking for. These carefully designed beaches are shaped to be placed around the trunk of a tree, providing multiple people with a comfortable place to sit and relax. Place them in a matter of minutes and enjoy the extra seating for many years yet to come.
3. Hang a Hammock
Two trees relatively close together give you the perfect opportunity to hang a classic hammock. Spend your spring and summers relaxing beneath the canopy of your favorite tree, gently swinging from side to side. Hammocks are available in a wide range of color options, making it easy to find one that complements the rest of your decor.
4. Add a Spotlight
When the sun goes down, show off your tree by placing an uplight or two at the bottom of the trunk. These upward beams of lights will highlight the trunk and canopy of the tree, giving you as much curb appeal at night as you have during the day.
5. Wrap with Twinkle Lights
Backyard trees are a perfect place to display a beautiful collection of twinkle lights. Wrap the trunk and first few branches with your favorite lights. When the sun starts to set and you go out to enjoy your dinner al fresco, switch on the lights for instant romantic ambiance.
