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.
An unused area in the yard was used to create a large raised bed garden. The grass in the area wasn't growing properly due to poor soil; but it received sun all day. Varying heights were used to accommodate root systems of different kind of plants, and to create visual interest.
