Landscape vines can be used as ground covers, or be used to “climb” and intertwine with trellises, pergolas or lattices. They make any garden look much more attractive and lush. Magnificent vines add coveted beauty and enhancement to homes, businesses and a host of other landscaping adventures. These climbers can cover bare walls and fences, hide unwelcome features, and bring LIFE to an otherwise staid landscape. Since most are fast growing, and depending on your selection, a spring planting can bring growth, of 10 to 20 feet or more by summer’s end!

Considering Ground Covers And Vines

When Landscape Vines Are Best

In addition to being used as ground covers, vines are great when you want to create enhanced beauty and bring life to a garden, patio columns, trellises, lattices, walls and/or pergolas. Whether used as ground covers or as “climbers”, they add beautiful color, texture, amazing visual appeal and have a cooling, refreshing effect in your outdoor living.

 

Seasonal Considerations

It is very important to consider whether your choices will be green and/or in bloom year round, or go dormant in the winter months. Vines generally work well for all year round and there are some evergreen plant options available. However, if you are mostly after beauty in the summer – when you are most likely going to be out in your garden – then flowers work extremely well. Spring, summer and fall flowers will add color and beauty to any garden, which make many people want to spend time out in their garden.
