Yes, planting in clusters looks way better than installing single plants, soldier-like, throughout your yard. But make sure your groups of perennials, shrubs, and trees have plenty of room to spread, or they’ll look choked and overgrown.
Also, over-crowded plants compete for food and water, putting the clusters at risk, especially during drought.
Google how high and wide the mature plant will be, and then combine that info with the spacing suggestions on planting labels.
They might look a bit sparse at first, but within three years, they’ll be looking lush and healthy.
Old time gardeners have this saying: “First year it sleeps, second it creeps, third it leaps.”
