A Formal Cottage Garden to Frame the Cape-Style House
The welcoming cottage garden in front of a cape-style home uses a successful mix of colorful plants in a variety of heights and textures. The homes edges are softened with the use of climbing plants, and weathered wood features are continued through the garden to continue the hardscape palette throughout and create a cohesive design.
This cottage style landscape perfectly compliments the stately architecture with dramatic but tranquil flare. This 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.
The soft planting palette used in this garden is composed primarily of pink, white yellow and blue flowering shrubs. The designer avoided oranges and reds in order for the palette to complement the natural shingles of the home, creating a cohesive design. Here, flowering shrubs like roses and other annuals and perennials ensure the garden is in bloom from March until late fall.
Climbing pink roses spill over a wood gazebo in this formal cottage garden, framing the entryway towards the shingled home. A simple rope fence intersects the garden and defines the entry garden from the large expanse of lawn framed by silvery lavender Russian sage.
