What Are Celestial Gardens?

Celestial Gardens are purpose-built landscaping designs to shine their brightest at night. They make use of plants that thrive at night, requiring at most a reasonable but not tropical degree of sun exposure. These plants often fit twilight color palettes, such as deep blues, indigo, violet, silver, grey, and white. In addition to cultivating a garden fit for nightfall, the tasteful use of backlighting, elevated tiers, and lawn ornaments further the mystique and depth of celestial gardens.

What Types Of Plants Should I Look Into?

Plants should be selected as much for their color and shape as for their viability within our environment. Plants that offer lunar hues, soft silver, and a gentle exterior are excellent starting points. A few edible varieties, such as rosemary and sage offer this signature lunar tone and gentle edges. White flowering plants, such as easter lilies, azaleas, and evening primroses are the stars of your celestial garden.

How Do I Care For My Celestial Garden?

Your garden should have distinct boundaries to clearly outline the edges of your space. Your choice of plants will also drastically impact your overall care plan. The difference between low-care silvery herbs and night-blooming flowers may be distinct, and gardens should always be viewed through a permacultural lens. Your celestial garden doesn't need to command all your time, attention, money, and sanity but it should be more deliberately planned than a simple raised bed. After all, this is the crown jewel of your Delray Beach home exterior and something that should reflect your own inner vision.

How Do I Make My Celestial Garden Even More Beautiful?

Once your plants have taken hold and your bed is arranged to promote both beauty and longevity, you can look beyond just the flora itself. These beautiful nighttime gardens benefit from tactful backlighting, colored bulbs, elevated tiers, and fixtures like fountains, statuettes, and mosaic tiling. Once your plants are arranged and entrenched to your liking, you can visit the garden shop and look for manmade additions to add an additional luster to an already naturally magnificent arrangement.
