Autumn Ferns and Hiding Your Water Hose

Thursday, May 27th, 2010

Autumn Fern
This a great evergreen fern to use in landscaping it will tolerate some partial sun to full shade (No Hot Afternoon Sun).  The Autumn Fern will not spread and stays in clumps, growing to a maximum of 24 inches in height.  The new growth comes out Bronze in color then turns bright green.  Deep Roots Landscaping likes to use the Autumn Fern in our landscaping design.

Hide Your Water Hose
I have seen the use of containers before to hide water hoses and garden tools and thought it has a great idea.  So why not try it.  I really like the way it works …  just you coil the water hose in a circle inside the container and pull out as much water hose as you need.  Yes, it still takes a little time to roll the hose up inside the container, but it gives the water hose a nice tasteful home around your landscaping (and I have yet to find a hose reel that really works well).

Hidden Water Hose

Confederate Jasmine – this is a great evergreen vine to use in your landscape.  It also has a small white flower that blooms once a year with a great fragrance, so it’s great planted by an entrance.  We used this vine to cover an old ugly wire dog fence that was about 6 feet tall.  It has taken five vines that we planted three years ago to cover about twenty square feet.  We used fertilizer and watered on a regular schedule to achieve this amount of growth.  It is not the fastest to grow but once established does very well.  This vine is great for mail boxes, arbors and trellis.
