Portfolio
Cottage Garden

I started with a blank slate with this garden.  I wanted to create a welcoming sense of entry and year round interest.  As you can see we also “borrowed” some landscape from the neighbouring properties.  The large willow tree in the background belongs to a garden 2 doors down.  The majority of this garden is a low maintenance shrub bed that requires just spring and fall maintenance and regular watering during the hot summer season.  These pictures were taken five years after installation.

After Five Years:


A welcoming entry garden


Movement and grace are created with grasses


We “borrowed” the willow tree from a garden 2 doors down


A “colour echo” was created with an existing tree in the yard


We “colour echoed” the trees across the street with shrubs of the same colour


Note the hits of blue to add colour interest


Under story plantings are an important part of a garden


A nice overall effect which also includes window boxes and hanging baskets
