Mountain Charm

Zinnias, black-eyed Susans, coneflowers, cardinal flowers, dahlias and more appoint this exuberant cottage garden by HGTV fan mmccool719 in western North Carolina.

Exuberant Colors

HGTV fan Lark's large garden is an explosion of color. "The Japanese beetles are feasting, the mosquitoes are biting and still I love gardening," she writes.

Fountain of Succulents

Drought-tolerant sedums and other succulents made a perfect partnership with this birdbath, posted by HGTV fan dharris1.

Curb Appeal

HGTV fan Sophia06 and her husband began creating this urban front-porch garden four years ago and then reluctantly had to move. "The good thing is this curb appeal helped to attract buyers to our home and we ended up with 19 offers in three days," she writes.

Memory Garden

This memorial garden, with a pond, fairies and plenty of flowers, is a tribute to Laura, daughter of HGTV fan AnnandTim.

Grass Under Your Feet

Live in the city with no room for a lawn? No problem for HGTV fan Glefteris, who created this park bench and "lawn" because putting your feet in the grass is "a real treat in a New York City brownstone garden."

Planters With Personality

HGTV fan KatG's planter heads are sure to be a conversation piece in the backyard. The "people" take on completely different looks as you vary the plants.

Year-Old Garden

HGTV fan virginiaoutback moved to a "stone-bare" yard in Virginia from North Carolina and brought her flowers with her. The result, after only a year, is this lovely space.

Super Potting Shed

HGTV fan KatG's project started with a potting table and wound up as so much more.

Small-Space Asian Garden

A variety of beautiful, well-kept plants make up this garden, which also includes a small pond. "A true Japanese garden is not busy as ours, but we love all types of plants and we can't help ourselves," writes lakesidegarden.

Perennial Power

A variety of colorful perennials, such as daylilies and coreopsis, brighten this garden bed. Posted by HGTV fan mrsfitz
