Mixed Shrub Garden

In the Shrub Garden, spring tiptoes softly across the landscape, revealed in the softly tinted new leaves of a Japanese maple or the bright blooms of an azalea. Massive curves accentuate Shrub Garden planting beds, creating carefully crafted views. “The basic design features double rows of shrubs fronted with an iris or peony or something that’s going to help hide stems of a large shrub,” Andes explains.
