Best Ideas from Garden Walks and Public Gardens

Just looking through some of the pictures from garden walks I have seen over the past couple years. I thought I'd share some of their great ideas.

Do make an entrance.

Do showcase a collection by planting all the same genus of plants together.

Do think of your garden as a series of vignettes.

Use high contrast foliage plants.

Mass one cultivar instead of a hodge-podge of many plants.

Use the power of paint to accent plants.

Sometimes the power of paint is to change what is into what we wish it was!
