According to @MonroviaPlants having a landscape that looks good 12 months of the year is possible and is very dependent on your design. If you are a DIY'er, this is important stuff to know before planting!

The key is a fabulous foundation planting scheme. A planting scheme means having a plan for your yard so you have cohesive structure and at least some plants that will be in prime all year.

When looking at beautiful landscapes, one thing they have in common is they are thought out, balanced, there is sufficient space for plants once they mature, and there is structure or "bones" to the design.

In your landscape design, a good rule of thumb is:
-50% Evergreen Plants
-25% Deciduous or Flowering Shrubs
-25% Perennials

Check out Monrovia's "Design School: Foundation Plantings" for more design tips.

Garden Tips for NOW:
1. Keep it Clean- get those weeds under control. Once they go to seed, they spread. Whack 'em, pull 'em...whatever, just get them out so they don't crowd the plants you actually want to keep around.

2. Planting Time- Plant all kinds of warm season veggies, melons and herbs. Tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, squash, watermelon, cucumbers, okra, basil, fennel. You get the idea. Plant all from seed or starters now.

3. Feed Citrus- Citrus plants should be full of flowers right now. They are just setting fruit. To help in that process give them a boost of balanced fertilizer. We've heard it said that citrus are like hungry teenagers, so don't neglect them.

4. Flowers- plant annuals like zinnia, alyssum, marigold, cosmos, sunflower from seed directly into your garden.
