5 Garden Designs For Southeast Louisiana Homes

Whether you're a DIY junkie or trying something new, let one of these unique designs speak toward your inspiration!

1. Raised Beds

One of the most common garden designs is the humble raised bed. This type of garden is easy to construct and maintain, perfect for young families. Higher soils will heat up faster in the spring and keep invasive weeds out.

Get started on a raised bed with these simple materials.

2. Fenced Plots

Don't have the patience to raise your beds? Fencing a large plot is perfect for planting vegetables or other sensitive varieties. Square plots give your garden a more distinct shape and can be a beautiful addition to any home.

A critter-proof garden fence is as easy as 1-2-3!

3. Cottage Gardens

This old-fashioned favorite is perfect for small spaces. Picking a theme—like herbs, flowers, or even vegetables—can help to create a more cohesive design. Consider adding a picket fence, trellis, or other charming details for full effect.

Pick a sunny plot and your building materials with easy blueprints.

4. Vertical Planting

If you're short on space, vertical planting is the solution for you. With a bit of creativity, you can pack a lot of plants into a small area by using trellises, hanging baskets, or even fences. This type of garden is perfect for fast-growing or hardy plants.

Blueprints for a vertical garden are here.

5. Potted Gardens

If you don't have the space for a full garden, a potted garden is an excellent alternative. Not only will it keep out critters and pests, but it may minimize plant disease spread as well. You might be surprised just how customizable these can be.

Get started with a large pot and your favorite herbs.
