The most efficient way to approach residential landscaping projects is to plan ahead for both climate and maintenance. Celebrate your beautiful landscape and increase your property value with landscaping that highlights its best features and keeps it looking great throughout the entire year. The professionals at TPG – The Plant Gallery can help you design and maintain your landscape in our New Orleans climate.
The Importance of Climate Zone
The greater New Orleans area has a unique climate. The most significant factors to be aware of when choosing what plants you’d like to fill your New Orleans garden with are: average annual rainfall, sunlight, the high and low end of the annual temperature
The extreme heat in the summer and some freezing temperatures in the winter require hardy plants that can thrive in hot, humid conditions for most of the year. The US Department of Agriculture has a map of hardiness and heat zones in the country that range from 3-11. The New Orleans area is in zones 8 and 9, and most gardeners consider NOLA’s heat zone to most commonly be in the subsection of 9a. Between the famous humidity of the region and the 60 inches of rain per year the area averages, there is ample opportunity for lush growth. Our garden center is curated with the best options for your Southeast Louisiana garden, in addition to all of the decor, tools, and supplies needed to get the job done right
