Border Garden


When the clients were building an addition on their residence, they found that this was the perfect time to also improve the landscape While ecology and environmental stewardship were important considerations, this is a garden designed primarily for people’s enjoyment, both from inside the house looking out, and by those sitting on the deck, patio or gazebo. We designed naturalistic paths to respect multiple points for viewing, and to complement the natural contour. Plants selected provide blooms in all seasons, and a sense of scale that makes the garden welcome wandering strolls as much as lazy conversation over iced tea.


Callirhoe involcurata; Cornus sericea (Red Osier Dogwood); Echinacea purpurea (Purple Coneflower); Purple Sage, Ruellia humilis (Wild Petunia)
