Do You Have Good Boundaries? (In Your Garden, That Is.)

Boundaries frame your garden and form its backdrop. While screens allow you to divide the garden into smaller areas and come in a variety of forms, other garden structures are works of art in themselves.

Internal Screens

Adding screens and panels within the garden divides it into smaller, more intimate spaces. They are especially useful in predictable plots which have lots of right angles, where they can add interest and heighten mystery. Panels below waist height allow views across the garden. Taller screens separate different areas. Gaps allow tempting glimpses of the garden beyond. Other characteristics to consider include opaqueness versus transparency, colors and textures, and ways to make supports and other frameworks reinforce the overall composition. For example, mixing brightly colored opaque and transparent screens makes a bold statement.
