Best Outdoor Plants for Your Tulsa Property

Mulching bed around the house and outdoor plants, wheelbarrow along with a shovel. An exceptional rental home showcases neat and appealing landscaping. To keep your property’s yard looking awesome, pick out the most ideal outdoor plants for your Tulsa property. There really aren’t too many tenants who aim to spend a lot of time and work caring for weak, high-maintenance plants or trees. Hence, planting sturdy, low-maintenance, drought-resistant bushes and trees is one of the best upgrades you can make to your rental property. This will make landscape care not difficult at all and see to it that your yard remains inviting and green throughout the whole year.

Even so, before you set about planting, you need to determine which plants are appropriate for the climate of your area. It’s also a pretty good idea to look into your local regulatory body to figure out if there are any restrictions on the kind of outdoor plants that can be applied. Different invasive species are outright unauthorized in certain states. A good deal of HOAs even imposes reservations on the type and number of plants that can be grown in a yard! While it is true that you like your Tulsa home to look marvelous, it is a beneficial idea to make certain that your rental property’s yard blends pleasantly with the rest of the landscaping in the area. This will greatly help to keep your property values high and your rental home competitive in the market.

Selecting the Perfect Outdoor Plants

Evergreen Varieties

When you’ve found what would work completely in your climate and neighborhood, it’s time to set out selecting plants and trees for the yard of your rental home. The finest outside plants for a rental property are those that will sustain themselves even if they are, now and then, untended. Your biggest bets will be evergreens or perennials, which will  return every year without having to be replenished.

Most sturdy evergreen plants provide vibrant hues for a whole year, even in frigid temperatures. Nandina Domestica is a low-maintenance evergreen shrub that sets off white flowers in the spring and brilliant red berries in the winter. Try rosemary for an easy-to-grow landscape plant that can, on top of everything else, be used in the kitchen. In excellent temperatures, rosemary will remain green the whole year, with palatable, fragrant leaves that can be used to season your favorite foods.

Durable Outdoor Plants

One of the best things, as regards durable plants, is that most of them create lovely blossoms. For a case in point, Meadow sage. This perennial’s huge purple blooms last from spring through October and attract hummingbirds. But still, nothing can really compete with the golden splendor of the forsythia bush in the spring. The forsythia, which most probably is used as a hedge or a natural-growing shrub, has a wonderful explosion of beautiful blooms in the spring and then terrific green leaves late into the autumn months. It’s a satisfying addition to multiple rental property landscapes because it’s definitely flexible and very easy to care for.


Shaded yards and huge sunny areas are two of the more complicated settings to cultivate plants in. Nothing grows excellently in the shadow than the vivid greens and golds of hostas, mostly known as plantain lilies. These low-maintenance plants produce attractive ground cover under trees and in other shaded places of the yard. Still, sunny areas must also look nice. Instead of a high-maintenance grass, think about planting phlox or creeping jenny. These plants spread easily and at the same time are not invasive, and they can form a pleasing carpet of blooms that never would need to be mowed.
