Irish gardeners have been using landscaping techniques for many years. These techniques have developed over time to include modern designs and integration with technology such as outdoor garden lighting and garden decking. At every level of landscaping there are elements that a gardener can partake in. One plant that is quite easy to grow for landscapers in the annual Clarkia. A bright plant with shades of red, pink, purple and white you can really add colour to your garden with this plant. The Clarkia will thrive in a strong light area. The flowering period is from July to October. By using bright flowers in a garden design you can transfer a dull garden into one with energy and life. Lanscapers in Ireland use colour in their garden design in the form of flowers, stones, pebbles and garden lighting.
