Here is one of my favorite flower bed ideas around a mailbox. Similar to the first one, this one also has climbing deep purple clematis. The red color of the Caladiums, on the other hand, creates an eye-catching contrast.

The biggest advantage of this landscaping bed is the fact it’s very easy to be maintained.

3. Brighten Your Outdoors with Colorful Mailbox Climbing Flowers

This pink Mandevilla (so-called Rocktrumpet) is a tropical flower that needs lots of direct sunlight.

As a result, if you decide to use it around your mailbox box – make sure there are no trees around. I just love the vintage feel it brings to the landscaping.

4. Make Mailboxes Look Beautiful with the Purple Clematis

It comes with lots of names around the world such as vase vine, traveler’s joy, old man’s beard, leather flower, and many more.

Keeping the garden nice and tidy is a time-consuming activity for the full-time working people.

This is why you should plan well. For instance, here is one of the easiest to maintain flower beds around mailboxes.

The variegated Liriope, dusty miller, and darker grass are herbaceous perennials that don’t need constant care. But they are looking fresh and stunning all the time.

9. Embrace Minimalism with a Small Mailbox Flower Bed

The letter written on the stone adds personalization to the design. In overall, this is a very simple flower bed idea but it is still (much) better than nothing!

10. Get Creative with a Mailbox Planter with a Trellis

Does this design remind you of a little house in the prairie? It really does to me.

I also love that there is a wooden construction and the mailbox is not standing there alone, as usual. The choice of flowers is very simple and stylish at the same time.

I guess every DIYer would be keen on building it himself.

I’d advise the gardeners who don’t have much free time to take care of the garden to plant Zinnia – very undemanding annual flower which, in fact, is always trendy.

24. Upcycle a Vintage Bike into a Colorful Mailbox Planter

As I said, the mailbox doesn’t need to be the standard boring type.
