Grande Ph. $24-2214 Prices Range from $j50 to $500 Landscaping Is Important In Home Decor By Vivian Broivn AP Neuw/ttalures The exterior decoration of a home is just as important as the interior design. It is the frame, the garnish, the fillip that puts the finishing touch to a house, If a mistake is made in planting a tree or bush, it can't be moved easily as an out-of- place chair or sofa indoors. It is important to spend at least as much time plotting plants as home furnishings. The same things apply -- form, color and texture. Good landscraping can increase the value of your house. One can begin by photographing a home, placing the picture on a large background, and then filling it in with sketches of trees, bushes, vines or pictures cut from " nurserymen's folders. If these are in scale, one should find a suitable arrangement. Most nurserymen are willing to volunteer assistance in this respect. Some people prefer simple plantings, building their houses to take full advantage of nature's woodland growth or tropical foliage. But some people, forgetting, let the bulldozer rampage through to make a clearing for a new, house. Then they must replace the plants. The expense is important, but oftentimes the biggest mistake made is making the setting look unnatural. A house should look natural in its setting whether it is in a desert or in the mountains. Height, manner of growth, flower and foliage colors are important considerations. Still you don't want plantings too pat. There is monotony in symmetry, although many amateurs think that is the goal in planting. The look to achieve is "it just sort of grew here." Nurserymen can give you a hand in planning your landscape from the standpoint of appearance, privacy and even climate control. Neophytes forget details such as that fast-growing trees can screen out all the light in a few years and may need to be moved or chopped down Trees planted too near the house may beat against the shingles, disturbing sleep on windy nights. A long-range planting program is best if funds are limited, rather than spreading out the money. Trees are chosen first, so that they will serve as a windbreak in winter, keeping fuel costs down, and providing shade in warm weather. In general, tall evergreens should be used with ow-growing, slow-growing plants around the house broken up with spreading and ball-style plants. Low ' slow growers should be used under windows. Espalier trees and climbing roses help cool a house A pool of water near the house can serve as a heat trap' In windy spots where there is a pretty view, such as one overlooking water, combine hedges with an outdoor window arrangement to maintain the view and foil the wind. There are standard prices on good nursery stock and these should have a good root system. -Planting at the right time is important, too. b r u i t s As soon as pocketbpok and weather permits one's next step should be to plant an area that canTerve as a screen or cozy spot. Even in the country where one can enjoy wide open spaces, an intimate little area may be ^d ee r«1n ° W ff *"****' ^"i"*' trees of varying TM and color to offer privacy and contentment. ,,« TM i busl i es wil1 , attract birds - if that 's what y o u rh?n,,ahIL P »H ned ^^ ti y tre6s ma y fl °wer successively throughout the outdoor season.
