If you’re thinking of renovating your landscape to include some powerful colors this season, choose some plants and flowers that have the staying power so you can welcome these colors each and every season.


Nothing catches the eye better than marigolds. These bright orange and yellow flowers are a great contrast against the green of your lawn. Even better, marigolds have a distinct and powerful perfume, which means they appeal to more than just your sense of sight.

Tiger Lilies

This flaming orange flower also gives off a distinctive scent and adds some zing to your landscape. Tiger lilies have been noted to reduce feelings of aggression, which is understandable as how could you not feel peaceful and lively when confronted by these beautiful flowers?


These simplistic flowers can add a variety of color to your landscape, allowing you to plant a flower that can vary from color to size. These flowers of love come in 3,000 different varieties, and their bulbs can be used as a replacement for onions in cooking!

Whatever style of flower you choose for your landscape, make sure it will catch the eyes of all your neighbors and bring a smile to your face every time you look at them!

So you’ve finally decided this is the season you will add an outdoor living space that will give you a place to escape to and take in the sounds, smells and sights of your gorgeous Long Island landscape, as well as provide a comfortable and convenient area to entertain great friends and family. Adding a hexagonal gazebo might just be the perfect avenue to that destination!

Hexagonal gazebos are traditional in appearance, but add a style and sophistication to your Long Island landscape. And although you may choose a design and materials that exude luxury, hexagonal gazebos are quite affordable. Furthermore, your property value will increase with this beautiful addition!

Hexagonal gazebos do not have to be one-size-fits-all in style. There are several different options, including whether or not to add benches inside the gazebo and different types of railings. When it comes to topping your hexagonal gazebo, you can choose from a canopy top, an ornamental cupola or more traditional roofing shingles, perhaps to match the roof of your home.

Hexagonal gazebos typically come in 8 foot and 10 foot sizes. A great way to accentuate your Long Island landscape gazebo is by adding garden lights and seasonal plantings around the gazebo itself. The plants and flowers will give you something beautiful to gaze upon as you relax the day away in your Long Island landscape and the garden lights will allow you to enjoy this outdoor living space even on cool, summer nights.
