Irrespective of the style of garden you're designing, whenever you're putting together a planting plan check first that the plants you choose suit the site, soil and climate.

  • Garden has Visual Break Between Terrace and House

    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.

  • Traditional Cutting Garden Set in Country Garden

    The Cutting Garden

    The client's brief was to create a traditional cutting garden. The triangular site, set within a country-style garden and measuring roughly 15 x 15 x 28 feet, is open and sunny. The owner also wanted the planting to create more privacy along the boundary, and the flat site needed some vertical accents to add interest. Slides 9-12 contain the particular plants used in this design.
