A woodland garden creates a serene and tranquil space of natural beauty, appearing effortless to the eye. Plants for this garden style will also make the overall maintenance easy and simple with little care needed throughout active growth. Subject to common assumption, woodland gardens can be conjured from small spaces, creating dreamy shaded areas with an abundance of beautiful shrubs, trees and perennials.
Prepare the area you wish to use by clearing away weeds and debris. Apply a generous amount of compost to the native soil and mix thoroughly breaking down any clumps of earth. This will improve both the drainage and quality of the native soil, producing healthy plants, shrubs and trees in abundance.
The perfect atmospheric specimens for a shady woodland space will combine texture and radiance allowing a procession of colour throughout the summer. For those with a larger garden, choose trees such as Gleditsia for both its form and colour.
Smaller growing trees such as Prunus exude gorgeous colour and texture alongside ornamental interest with a profusion of white blooms which are often followed by voluptuous fruits.
Create ribbons of elaborate, interlacing and modest colour shades by planting Erythronium and Eranthis together to form a combination of valuable height and groundcover to radiate through shade forming trees and shrubs.
