Succulents: One of the Top Gardening Trends

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 12 August , 2020

Recently, succulents have become an immensely popular gardening trend. You’ve probably seen them incorporated into numerous gardens and landscaping designs, leaving you to wonder what the hype is all about. Below are three of the top reasons gardeners of every skill level love succulents.

They’re Low-Maintenance

Succulents are a low-maintenance addition to any garden. They don’t need much water to thrive, they’re not too picky with soil, and it’s okay for them to be out in the sunshine all day. These factors make them easy for a beginner gardener or someone who can’t dedicate too much time to their plants. Succulents are sturdy and don’t demand too much attention.

They’re Perfect in the California Climate

Succulents thrive in hot, dry climates. Sound familiar, Californians? San Diego’s sunny, warm weather and low humidity are perfect for succulents. They’re in their ideal environment, making them popular throughout California gardens.

There’s a Variety of Styles

Succulents come in all shapes, sizes, and even a few different colors. They can range to shades of yellow, green, red, dark purple, and more. While these succulents may be in different shades, they’re all in a coordinating color family. For this reason, you can mix and match and still have a nice-looking garden.

Succulents also come in different shapes and sizes. Some are large, with purple, artichoke-like leaves tipped with red. Some are small, green plants with thick, smooth, oval leaves. No matter what the shape or size, combining succulents makes a multi-dimensional, dynamic display that’ll draw anyone’s eye. It’s a fun way to get creative while still only working with one, simple plant.

With these factors considered, it’s no wonder succulents are so popular. If you’re interested in incorporating these pain-free plants into your garden or landscaping design, we can help! Reach out and we’ll share even more of our expert knowledge.

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
