Concrete Garden Path: We made this garden walkway with a mold that we purchased at Lowe's. We mixed the Quickcrete up and then poured it into the mold a section at a time. It was almost like making mud pies. It was a bit time consuming but we were very happy with the end result. It has held up very well as it has been down now for about 3 years.See More
There is no better place than the garden for enjoying the sun and fresh air.

Sweet peas! Soak seeds 24 hours before planting then sow directly in the garden, (fall in mild climates, spring in cold climates) Run your rows north-south for best sun exposure.

Astrantia major - Masterwort produces many small, ivory flowers that are flushed pink and bloom continuously throughout the summer and fall, wafting a sweet scent. Care: Masterwort prefers part shade and rich, medium to wet soil. It grows best in soil that is not allowed to dry out and in areas with cooler summer nights.

In between these very tall walls, containers add not just interest, but the varied plants add texture and beautiful, cooling variable green color. Although the stone path and beautiful walls are lovely, the walkway is greatly enhanced by these additions. The taller evergreens and occasional vine climbing up the wall lower the wall visually.

alliums, with heads about the size of tennis balls, come in a vibrant deep purple, (Allium hollandicum ‘Purple Sensation’), or a softer mauvy shade, (Allium hollandicum aflatunense). both are spectacular in bud, full flower, in the seedhead stage, and long lasting in the vase too. what is more they seem to naturalise and bulk up well.

Blazing star (liatris), perennial. Great plant. Let the seed heads that dry up in the fall drop to the ground. You will have lots of plants if you let this happen by itself each year. This Liatris is good to repeat here and there. 6 ft. apart for great eye appeal. Happy planting..

No matter where you live, being water wise is the smart way to garden. And if you live in drought stricken or prone areas, it’s a must. While I love a gorgeous hydrangea, and roses are amazing, there are plenty of flowering plants that don’t suck down our water resources. These ten no fail perennials for low water gardens fit the bill, are gorgeous as stand alone plants, and come back every year!

Zebra Hollyhocks are perennials that bloom all summer long. They are easy to grow, self seed, are drought tolerant, and attract butterflies. They grow in sun to part shade and get 2-4' tall. Great for perennial beds, cottage gardens, borders, and rock gardens. Zones 4-8 by letitia

Ferns & Astilbe are a perfect mix for the shade garden, creating a soft and colorful display. While ferns are initially expensive, they are a hardy perennial and multiply rapidly. They are easily separated to be transplanted in new beds or given to friends. They stay green all summer and die back to a stub in winter for easy fall or spring cleanup.
