Multi-decks allow you to diversify your outdoor space based on a variety of activities such as this set up from Kane Landscapes which prominently displays a spa area on one level and a garden patio area above it.
Less dense than some alliums, ‘Graceful’ (Allium amplectens) has heads studded with pale pink, star-shaped florets. Look closely to spot the small, violet-blue stamens. Plant this allium at the front of beds or borders; the magenta stems grow only 10” high.
This floribunda rose is outstanding for its nearly glowing, red-orange blooms.. The full flowers may remind you of lush English roses. Bred especially for containers, 'Brilliant Veranda' is stunning when combined with annuals or perennials and also thrives in a sunny bed or border.
This robust perennial flower garden has a small stone border separating it from the manicured lawn. Tall spikes of salvia called Red Hot Mama add dimension to the bed, while the low-growing Blue Bedder salvia – the deep purple flowers – is a great choice for perennial borders.
Minimal hardscaping can be used to define an area. For this brownstone garden, a bluestone border delineates the formal lawn, which serves as a transition space within the landscape. Carefully manicured flower beds accent the borders.
