Ornament adds a whimsical look to the waterfeature. You can hear the water faloing over the rocks into the pond as the fdrog looks on. The cascading plant material soften the rockwork and add color the stream and gardens.
The evergreen plant is Japanese Garden Juniper. As you see it looks wonderful when combined with rock work .

The character of the mountain stream is enhanced by the plant material. Large leaves of the Hosta, contrast with the Low Growing Juniper and perennials. The plant material cascades over the rockto create the illusion of a natural mountain stream.

Hey! What plants make up this combo of purples and reds/pinks? Thx!!
@ linmall: A few I can identify...Lavender on right, perhaps English, in back, Penstemon (pink), the white flowering shrub looks like Guara, lower plants towards front, Nepeta (cat mint) with purple flowers and Teucrium chamaedrys (germander) with pinkish flowers. I hope that helps!
Only a few plants to cover a large area. Beautiful
billowing plantings with out the need for water and NO thorns.

Replace lawns with larger, ornamental plants for more visual punch and biodiversity. Larger spaces can go lawn free with mixed plantings of perennials, shrubs, trees and grasses

3. Flowering perennials. An almost unlimited number of flowering perennials pair well with roses. You'll want to choose other flowers that complement, rather than compete with, your roses, so look for perennials with smaller or larger forms, different leaf types
double perennial border defines the landscape. But the exuberance of color is offset by a grassy strolling path that leads to a small but effective focal point.Notice the shrub at the end of the path, centered between two huge shade trees. This detail creates a natural end point of the perennial garden

Lovely color! What is the red plant below windows? Thank you!!
That's right...they are blue pansies. We plant them in fall and enjoy them from Feb. to May. I usually take them out when I'm ready to plant summer annuals.
grow in cool spring weather. Where I live (Deep South) we plant in fall and enjoy over the winter until late Spring.
The red plant is a weeping cut leaf maple tree. Acer palmatum dissectum 'Crimson King'. I hope this helps!
much work. Like the bulb idea and perennials are always nice since they do come back. Like the two large pots by front door. Also liked the material they used for the driveway or walkway instead of cement.
