Landscaping with Bulbs: Design Ideas

mass planting Mass Planting - To get a full Dutch-field look, plant spring bulbs in mass in loose, informal clusters. A mass planting of one variety and color delivers a big punch of visual impact. And mass-planted bulbs are easy to care for, as they have homogeneous care requirements and the foliage matures at the same time across the group. Avoid planting in a single straight row or circle - bulbs look best planted in staggered, free-form arrangements.
small places Planting in Small Spaces - When planting in small spaces, pick just one color. A monochromatic grouping will have greater impact and make the planting space look larger; mixed colors planted in a small space tend to make the space look smaller.
large spaces Planting in Large Spaces - If you have a lot of planting space, a planting of two or three different colors can be effective. Do not intermix them; concentrate the bulbs of each color together. Select complimentary colors, or multiple shades of one hue. White flowers can be effective in merging colors together or in brightening dark corners.
inter mixing Inter-Mixing Plants - The color of spring-flowering bulbs really pops when they are planted with pansies or other compatible early flowers. Enhance the look of summer-flowering bulbs by planting them with summer flowering annuals such as impatiens, petunias, and other annuals.
