The best plants for sidewalks

.
The best flowers to use as a sidewalk border are those that grow easily and withstand foot traffic, pollution and compacted soil.
Choose low-maintenance, water-wise plants, and the botanical transformation will save you time and money, as well as improve your home's curb appeal.
The plants you choose need to be pretty. Sidewalk gardens are often inconvenient to irrigate, and there’s the issue of their use as pit stops for dog walkers.
You'll find hundreds of perennials, annuals and herbs that fit the bill. Some plants, such as cat mint, attract lots of bees. Plant them at the back of the sidewalk border so pedestrians aren't stung.
This kind of garden tends to look best when the plants in them are shorter, naturally well-behaved varieties.
Flowers for a sidewalk border need to grow well with the growing conditions present, including sunlight, moisture, and soil type. A riot of colors is suitable, but a more restrained palette is usually best for modern landscapes. The fun of gardening is trying out different combinations.
