What is a feature tree?
We help with landscape designs on a daily basis, one simple question every time is “how do I create a backyard that everyone wants to be in?”. One of the biggest ways to create atmosphere in your backyard is to plant a feature tree! A feature tree can be so much more than just a plant. When chosen correctly, it can act as a focal point, drawing you into the landscape and keeping you engaged as you move throughout your garden. A good feature tree has a combination of practical and aesthetic value. Typically, one with grand stature, striking architectural shape, seasonal foliage, textural qualities or stunning flowers makes for the perfect candidate.
What is the best tree for my front yard?
Your front yard is the place where your guests and neighbours make their first impression about your house, so having a tree in the front yard that makes a statement is essential. Having a tree with large leaves and little to no fruit or seeds dropping makes yard clean-ups much easier, but there’s no need to sacrifice the beauty of trees for something utilitarian. Consider a crepe myrtle or lilly pilly for that perfect front-yard pop that is sure to make a statement all year round. Crepe myrtle can be grown in the ground or in a pot and lilly pilly’s are an Australian native plant that attract native birds and bees.
What is the fastest growing ornamental tree?
In the right climates some feature trees will grow faster than others. Fast growing trees give homeowners the opportunity to realise the benefits of a mature tree sooner. Fast growing feature trees are especially popular, along with fast growing shade trees and fast growing hedges. With fast growing trees you can reap the benefits of them in your landscape designs sooner. Flowering gum’s are moderately fast-growing in suitable climates along with Blueberry Ash, which is a stunning native rainforest tree.
What are the best feature trees for pots?
There are plenty of feature trees that can be grown in pots and containers. The ideal types of tree to grow in pots are slow-growing or dwarf varieties. When choosing your tree, search for varieties described as ‘dwarfing’ – a ‘vigorous’ tree will grow too quickly to be happy in a pot, while an ‘extremely dwarfing’ tree will be too weak to cope with growing in a pot. Apple trees work well in pots and turn into lovely feature trees when they blossom in spring. Flowing Dogwood is also a good feature tree for pots, it is slow-growing with long-lasting, pink bracts in spring and purple autumn leaves.
