Formal Cottage Garden with Metal Gazebo

A vibrant purple-flowering vine spills over an antique metal gazebo nestled amongst the verdant plants of a formal cottage-style garden. Planting the garden up against the gazebo helps to soften the structure's edges and creates a cohesive design. The gazebo offers a comfortable vantage point from which to view the wetland-like pond and the rest of the lush cottage garden.

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.
