When you want to elevate your sunny mailbox area with a vibrant landscape design, follow these simple steps.

  • Feature low-maintenance ground covers.

  • Add a pop of color and texture by adding medium-height perennials, such as Daylilies and Salvia.

  • For visual interest, use ornamental grasses like Dwarf Fountain or Karl Foerster for added visual interest and movement.

  • Complete the charming scene with a compact shrub, like Dwarf Weigela or Globe Arborvitae.
