The rear terrace is framed by stone balustrades with decorative urns, leading to an inviting swimming pool. The line of the terrace is continued with the use of a linear hedge to further define the garden's spaces.
Beautiful flowering plants and manicured hedges surround the sophisticated crushed gravel patio and koi pond. Hand-stacked stone above the waterfall mimic architectural elements found in other parts of the garden.
Luxury Purple and Blue New England Garden with Pools and Evergreens
This vibrant blue and purple garden of perennials and annuals in Newport, Rhode Island, is framed by a classic Italianate pergola and a backdrop of evergreens, earning it an ASLA 2018 Honor Award. Trees in container line the walkway along the pools connected by a channel to a sitting area. The project is designed by Reed Hilderbrand Landscape Architecture.
Succulent Garden Feature Rich Green and Purple Toned Plants, Stone Bed and Wooden Platforms
Wood platforms situated in the natural rock bed create a comfortable walking path by this succulent garden. The small plants feature rich tones of green and purple adding instant life to the space. Bamboo stalks shooting up against the wall add height to the area and finish off the zen, Asian style look of the garden.
This intimate garden is full of flowering trees and shrubs. Surrounded by stone walls and stairs and with a simple paver pathway meandering through the garden, the whole space evokes an Old World feel.
The plantings change with seasons and attract wildlife like butterflies and bees. The designer used plants with yellow, whites and grays that can reflect light in the evening. It also used some evergreen perennials and architectural grasses for winter interest. The lower paved area and the long cement planter are in permanent shade and the area by the grass is super sunny.
Keep your salad bowl at the ready when you grow this romaine lettuce blend. It includes varieties to ensure you’ll have a season-long harvest—and colorful salads. Varieties include green ‘Craquerelle Du Midi,’ green spotted red ‘Forellenschluss (also known as ‘Speckled Trout Back’),’ bright green ‘Little Gem,’ deep red ‘Rosalita’ and medium red ‘Rouge d’Hiver.’
This cottage style landscape perfectly compliments the stately architecture with a dramatic pool. The stately home was softened with beautiful curves to compliment the brick lined walkway. Every nook and corner in the landscape was a perfect opportunity to create a creative landscape vignette.
Ox Eye daisies provide a soft texture and vibrant white flower against a garden with strong stone features. The use of native plants in the large planting beds help to create separation amongst the architectural features of the garden.
