So, today, we would like to show you several such Eye-Catching Flower Beds Around Trees that you may get inspired from.
Planting some flowers around a tree may seem to you like a simple process, but still there are some things that need to be considered. First, it is important to trim away few of the lower branches to allow light to come under the tree. You shouldn’t make a raised bed because this won’t create better soil for the flowers. It may even harm or kill the tree. You should plant in holes to avoid damage to the tree’s shallow root system. Also, you shouldn’t plant large plants. This is because they can grow too high even through the tree’s lower branches. So, look for some low growing plants. Such plants can be lilies, violets, daffodils, primrose, wild ginger, coral bells, stone crop, shooting star etc. Scroll down now to see our collection of flower beds around trees and get inspired to create one in your yard too. Enjoy!

Such materials can be rocks, pebbles, bricks, wooden logs, palettes etc. You can even make edging out of some repurposed items, such as plates, glass bottles, cinder block, terracotta pots etc. Garden edging serves to beautify the lawn, to keep animals away from plants as well as to create a visual reminder for the kids to stay out of flowerbeds.
