Michigan Garden Highlights

By Hilbert John Subscribe to RSS | July 23rd 2012 | Views:

The classic Michigan garden is a site to be seen. Walk through an all-inclusive mix of native and non-native flowers and surround yourself with the lushness of Michigan nature. If you’ve never before witnessed the natural loveliness of this spectacular state, by all means, make a Michigan garden part of your travel itinerary. A favorite of brides, artists looking for horticultural inspiration and simple pedestrians calming their nerves with the calmness of natural beauty, Michigan gardens have around 2,600 species of plants and flowers, and the variety is breathtaking.

Different Michigan gardens abound, and some are more practical than you might expect.

- Rain gardens – Thanks to the popularity of rain gardens in Michigan, much sediment and runoff that might otherwise reach rivers and creeks is absorbed before it causes any damage. The trick is planting plants with deep roots that suck up that moisture and in turn profit from it. Most rain gardens are comprised of plants native to the state of Michigan. These plants require less fertilizer and less care than non-native plants, allowing the gardener to leave the garden alone for a long period of time. It takes special plants to make a rain garden successful. The plant must be able to withstand both extreme dryness and extreme moisture. As its sole form of water will be based on the forces of nature, it may experience torrential rainfalls or relative drought. Also, it must be a hardy plant in terms of temperature fluctuations. Michigan is as well-known for its warm summers as it is for its blustery winters. Though it sounds difficult to put a rain garden together and have it be effective, it is not. It’s just necessary to do your research first.

- Personal gardens – The Michigan garden you will find in the backyard depends on the depth of knowledge of the gardener. It definitely takes some time to put together a garden that will stand the test of the seasons; care must be taken before choosing the flowers and shrubs that will last the year-round. Even native plants cannot simply be purchased on name alone. If they have been cultivated in soil that is not native to Michigan, they may not survive – and worse, they may infect the soil around them. Non-native plants can flourish in Michigan, but they need to be kept in controlled conditions. There are so many native examples that are impressive in their beauty and hardiness that it may be worthwhile to simply choose among them.

Local gardens – These are frequented by weddings on the weekends. It makes sense – since there are so many different varieties of Michigan plants and flowers that using a Michigan garden as the backdrop for a wedding is sheer genius. Save thousands on flowers that will only wilt and die after your ceremony. Based on the time of year, you will be surrounded by a variety of gorgeous colors and textures. Set your nuptials within a beautiful natural paradise – marry in a Michigan garden.
