The yard and garden pictured here would delight any flower lover, since they are designed to bloom from early spring into fall. During spring, flowering trees and shrubs, which border part of the property, provide seasonal color. The main feature of the property, however, is a dramatic perennial border designed to bloom from summer through fall. The key to creating a successful display of flowering perennials lies in choosing and combining plants that bloom together and in sequence, so the garden is never bare of flowers. When so orchestrated, the border displays a fascinating, ever-changing collection of colors. The perennials grow in large drifts to create the most impact when viewed from across the lawn. The planting beds surround an irregular, bow-shaped lawn, a pretty way to add interest to an uninspiring squared-off property. A low stone wall raises the planting beds several steps up, bringing the flowers closer to eye level and emphasizing the contours of the design. The low retaining wall also provides an attractive way to deal with a sloping property so the lawn can be level. If your property is flat, the wall can be eliminated without altering the basic design. Behind the perennial garden, evergreens form a background that sets off the colors in summer. When sitting on the patio of this beautiful yard, the eye is drawn toward the gazebo. Accessible by a stepping-stone walk, the gazebo makes a wonderful place to sit and relax in the shade while enjoying the beauty of the perennials from a different perspective.
