Time to green your garden

Greening your garden is always a good idea. Plants make your garden lively, climate-resistant and relaxing. Turn your garden into a wonderful outdoor space for optimal enjoyment. What will you do to green your garden?

More life in your garden

Whether you go big or small when greening your garden: every little step helps. Even swapping just one flagstone for a plant will bring your garden to life. With a mix of flowering perennials, get ready to welcome hordes of butterflies and bees. It is a wonderful sight and also benefits biodiversity in your neighbourhood.

Nice and fresh

Plants offer a cooling effect on summer days, thanks to shading and evaporation through the leaves. It’s better than a parasol! And if there is the occasional heavy downpour, having a green garden is a great thing since the plants will retain some of the rainwater. What’s more: the water slowly permeates into the soil, preventing flooding. In other words: a green garden is also climate-resistant!

No stress

You’ve probably experienced this for yourself: green also gives a sense of peace. Just looking at greenery has a stress-reducing effect. Natural sounds, like the rustling of leaves and grasses, also help you relax. The smell of lavender (Lavandula) completes your relaxing outdoor space.

Tips & ideas

  • There is always room for greenery. You could create a façade garden, for example, with bugleweed (Ajuga), bellflowers (Campanula), coral bells (Heuchera) and perennial ornamental grasses. Or why not plant herb plants in pots and bins?
  • Wintergreen perennials, such as dwarf periwinkle (Vinca minor), green carpet (Pachysandra), ferns, hedgenettles (Stachys) and moss phlox (Phlox subulata) will keep your garden beautifully green year-round.

If you enjoy seeing birds in your garden, greening is also an excellent idea. Birds like to scratch among the plants in search of food. With a bird bath, you can turn your garden into a proper bird paradise.
