A natural transition from the sidewalk to the entry of this enchanting traditional home. The light gray exterior is beautifully complimented with lush landscape. Shrubs, trees and grass create levels in the landscaping.
A monochromatic color scheme provides an immediate sense of calm and order. Go with a long run of the same plant or experiment with different shades of your chosen color. Foliage beneath trees tends to be lush and green to capture the maximum amount of light, the whites and pale shades stand out even more against the green.
Think outside the box - It’s all too easy to fall back on the idea that landscape beds should be a square, but a curved or circular design like this one can make a real impact. There are no straight lines in nature, so it makes sense to design curves into the hard- landscaped elements of your design for a natural, organic feel.
A garden of yellow tulips and daffodils blossom in this cottage style garden. Planting bulbs separately from other blooming shrubs allows the tulips and daffodils' beautiful blooms to be the focus and so they don't compete with other flowers.
These aren’t your grandmother’s garden mums! Dress your outdoor spaces with the newest in garden mums: trailing Skyfall garden mums (Chrysanthemum morifolium). The flowers open to reveal petite daisy-like blossoms that beckon late season pollinators. Create your own autumn fest by hanging baskets of mixed Skyfall garden mum varieties, including yellow, white and pink. Purchase baskets that are fully budded and just starting to open flowers to make sure you get the color you want. Then sit back and enjoy the floral fireworks as buds burst.
