Here, for example, I love how the planting bed offers a big chartreuse burst from a golden creeping Jenny mass (Lysimachia nummularia 'Aurea'). It is contrasted (in color and texture) by a plantation of bread fescue (Festuca 'Elijah Blue'). It's easy to create a melee look when planting if you're trying to plant one of everything. I get it right with this gardening idea: Re-use the same colors, shapes or varieties of plants in plantations.
The ideal landscape provides your family with recreation, intimacy and fun - even if these needs change over time. What's more, the landscape should - and will - add to the value of your home and its appeal in any season, especially lucky at the time of sale. Here's how to start with your plans.

This strategy leads to a successful, attractive, low maintenance and environmentally friendly landscape.
Our sensory experience also changes when the height of the aerial plane rises or falls with the canopy of trees, with steps or paths going up and down in the horizontal ground plane, and with the gradual transition that occurs when we move from a completely closed environment. Examples of aerial plans include canopies, suspended structures, awnings and parasols. In Figure 19-12, the head plan is drawn by a continuous lattice with a repeating pattern inspired by the carrots. The lattice that creates the air plane includes a colored plexiglass that projects a colorful reflection on the bridge.
Make sure the final plant selections are appropriate for the site and design. For example, choose a large evergreen tree as an indigenous arborvitae cultivar (Thuja occidentalis) and locate several to build a screen or windbreaker. Select tall deciduous trees planted away from the home's foundation on the south and west exposures to mitigate the hot summer temperatures. For shaded areas, consider shade tolerant perennials such as Indian pink (Spigelia marilandica), tiarella cordifolia, white aster (Eurybia divaricatus) and green and gold (Chrysogonum). virginianum) around shade-tolerant evergreen plants. like the Christmas fern (Polystichum acrostichoides) or the anise tree (Illicium floridanum).
