Interlocking Circles

Separating two generously curved areas of the garden with a pinch-point offers both open and enclosed areas, draws the eye around the garden and makes a space appear larger. Create a backdrop for lower plants at the front of planting beds by allowing some shrubs and trees to grow to their natural size. Use the narrow space between the circular forms to bring color and interest into the center of the design.
