A Divided Garden

Unless you divide it up in some way, a rectilinear garden holds no surprises. To avoid the \"what you see is what you get\" effect, designer Fran Coulter created a visual break between a decked terrace along the side and back of the house and the rest of the garden. Slides 2-6 contain the particular plants used in this design.
