Hide CaptionShow CaptionThrough the use of flagstone paving, Matt has combined the three separate parts of the garden into one.
This hardscape feature meanders from one end of the yard to the other, unifying the space. A bench on the opposite end of the yard provides seating and a focal point for that small space. Low-maintenance plantings include lady palm (Rhapis excelsa), variegated cast-iron plant (Aspidistra), nandina, ferns and ornamental grasses and complete the garden's new look.
