Recycling Made Beautiful--A Garden's Evolution

garden flow
Originally, this was to be a no-lawn property with pine needles.  Later wood chips were added.  It is laid out in a casual, flow design. Stone edgings, though functional, lend to a flow.  Enjoy a lavish mixture of small trees, perennials and shrubs including hydrangeas, of course! The front gardens are enhanced with a generous splash of annuals. Dahlias are featured in late summer.  Many of the plants are hand-me-downs from gardening friends or the owner’s own “must have” favorites. Some are in exactly the right spot and some are in various states of coming-to-be appropriate placement. This is the outcome of a “recycle” philosophy; using known plants and trying new ones in new ways and places. Now that a one-room addition has been completed, Pamela has the pleasure (and chore) of designing the gardens leading to and around that space. You can ask about the plans of this talented designer. Forever evolving—in this garden as in nature!
