One of the most beautiful ways to add beauty to your yard is by landscaping with nice smelling flowers. Not only do the scents entice people but they also keep unwanted animals out of your garden. Many animals are repelled by the smell of fresh cut grass and many that want to come inside will be deterred if there are plants around them that smell like a trash fire. The best way to keep animals out of your yard is to have an animal repellent on the plants and flowers.
Some people prefer the smell of sweet jasmine or Rosemary because of the pleasant smells that they emit but these types of flowers produce a lot of oils that can be very irritating to other animals. A popular choice for repelling animals is the scent known as citronella. This is a natural compound that can be found in a few different types of plants. It has a sweet citrus smell that attracts mosquitoes and rats. When the mosquito or rodent bites the plant, the smell of the citronella is released which scares them away.
A great alternative to using strong repellants is to use some nice smelling flowers in your landscaping. Some of these smells include lemon balm, cedarwood, mint, lavender, Rosemary, and more. All of these scents are fixatives and repel pest animals like mosquitoes, squirrels, and flies. You can even use some potpourri with these plants if you don’t want the strong smells. Potpourri is made from natural ingredients that attract certain animals and bugs.
If you have some nice smelling flowers in your yard, then you need to have some pots on hand to plant them in. Having pots in your backyard will keep them from becoming weeds. When you have a nice backyard to smell better, you will be able to enjoy your yard much more. When you have more of a lush garden, you will enjoy the whole outdoor experience more.
When using any type of container, it is important to learn how to properly care for them to keep them from being ruined by pesky insects and other animals. Most of the plants that are made into pots will contain a high concentration of oil that makes them very attractive. However, these same plants can make them very unattractive by being too heavy or tall. If you want your plants to have a good growing height, then you should use some low-water plants in your pots. The heavier they are, the less likely they are to grow tall and still be fragrant. The lighter the plant, the more likely they will grow tall and still have a nice floral scent.
If you are trying to grow a bunch of different types of flower plants together, you might find that the smell of each individual plant can be overpowering. This can be prevented if you choose which scented flower plants you are going to grow with your own knowledge and experience. When you grow plants that are similar in size and fragrance, the less likely it is that they will be too overwhelming to the others.
The more expensive types of flowers will produce a more distinct floral scent and they will also be heavier. You can use this knowledge to your advantage by choosing the type of pots you are going to use. If you are going to grow a lot of taller flowers, you may want to use a larger pot so that you have plenty of room.
In landscaping, you want to make sure that your plants are healthy. Healthy plants will produce more scents and the best scents are not produced by cheap plants or even by dying plants. Using a variety of different types of flowers, such as Red Roses, Lavender and Gardenias can all help to ensure that you have a garden that smells good all season long. Just by creating a more natural and beautiful landscaping, you are helping your landscaping to last longer and the added scent will help to ensure that you and your family enjoy it more.
