10 New Ideas for Your 2022 Lawn and Landscape
If you like gardening challenges, you may want to change your Doylestown or Hatboro front yard into flowing fescues or change up your green lawn for a pollinator garden? What strikes your fancy?
Here are 10 new ideas to try in your 2022 lawn and landscape:
- Add a wildflower garden: Include natives and pollinators that will keep your new garden busy. Plant pollinator favorites, such Joe Pye Weed, garden phlox, calendulas, butterfly weed, and many other choices.
- Break up your lawn to include front yard flowerbeds and walkways: Consider adding edibles to these new beds for variety and interest. You can also add paver walkways to connect your property from the front to the back.
- Host a plant swap meet for your kid’s sports team or the scouts. You bring your landscape items and plant cuttings and exchange them for new plant varieties and garden tools. Read more: Landscaping in Winter in Central Bucks, PA
- Try a new garden style: While we usually have rainy springs and autumns, there may be a summer that’s hotter and drier than usual. Consider adding ice plants, sedums, gravel, and other forms of drought-friendly gardening.
- Add a rain garden to your PA landscape: If you have swampy areas on your property where the soil stays moist days after a storm, you may want to add a rain garden. Include plants, such as cattails and weeping willows that don’t mind growing in wet soil.
- Consider growing fruit trees: You no longer need to have a large property to raise a few trees. You may need to buy more than one tree for pollination purposes, but you’ll reap the rewards when you have plums, apples, cherries, and pears to can, make into jam, and share with friends. And it’s one way to get your kids to eat healthier.
- Go tropical: Create a lush landscape that feels like you’re traveling across the world. Try these tropical plants: caladiums, rose of Sharon, mallows, cannas, and elephant ear plants. Mix dark foliage with green for variety and mystery.
- Incorporate the indoors with the outdoors. Add a patio or deck that includes outdoor furniture, potted plants (including ones you keep inside over the winter), and lights for a place to getaway. Make a patio or deck an extension of your living and dining rooms. Learn more: Leaf Removal in Bucks County, PA
- Keep climate change in mind: While we don’t want to worry about significant catastrophes, eastern Pennsylvania does get its share of hurricanes, tropical storms, and Nor’easters. Reduce erosion on hilly areas by adding a rock garden or ground cover. Fix poor yard drainage to avoid your home getting flooded.
- Create a meditation garden: Meditation or serenity gardens feed your soul. Add Asian influences, such as gravel, a wind chime, and a bench to sit and enjoy the space. Include evergreens, Japanese maples, and a water feature to boost the ambiance.

Plant of the Month: Holly
Nothing says Christmas like holly. Its green waxy leaves and bright red berries provide Christmas cheer straight from your yard.
Indeed, you’ll see cardinals, bluebirds, mockingbirds, and catbirds eating those berries, and you might also cut some branches to decorate your porch or your dining room table with joy.
Is Holly a Shrub or a Tree?
Holly can be both. Holly (Ilex) has hundreds of varieties in different colors, shapes, and sizes.
There are four primary holly groups:
- English holly: English can be a tree or a shrub with glossy leaves and tiny flowers that bloom in spring.
- American holly: American holly’s leaves aren’t bright but dull compared to its English cousin.
- Chinese holly: Chinese holly has large, glossy, spineless leaves (meaning no thorny leaves).
- Hybrid holly: Hybrid holly comes in many varieties with different colored berries, leaves, and sizes.
Did you know that you can invest in holly that grows in different shapes, such as columns, pyramids, rounded, and weeping? And there are various berry colors to choose from, including
There are so many combinations and growth habits of holly that it can be hard to choose which ones would add the best color to your winter landscape.
