Cottage garden instead of a front yard?
cottage garden. Who needs a lawn?
Gorgeous cottage garden with healthy Tuscan kale!
The cottage-potage garden. I imagine the historic predecessor of what I call the cottage-potage garden might have looked a bit like this garden, with edibles such as kale (in the foreground), herbs and squash (adjacent to the house) planted here and there alongside scented flowers and ornamentals
A traditional cottage garden blends vegetables and flowers in a riotous mix of colors and textures. They stand in sharp contrast to the simple lines and white siding of the house behind them.
Having a garden is much better for the environment than a lawn!
These kinds of gardens take the kitchen garden from the back patio to the front yard. See more

Is the cottage look more your style? Cottage gardens are perfect in a small space. Cluster 10 to 15 plants around your doorstep for a charming look. Go for plants with fragrance to create an experience every time you come home. Plants that work well in a cottage garden
I forgot to mention that magical gardens also go hand-in-hand with my definition of cottage.

Florida garden!! I have crushed granite pathways.....but I need some curved edging ideas that are inexpensive and that I would be able to do myself. Thank you so much for the beautiful picture!!
curved walkways & cottage garden layering
Keep it informal. A certain informality defines cottage garden plants, of course, but it also applies to your hardscape. Gravel, pebbles or bark make great choices for paths, for instance. Rather than identical bricks set precisely in mortar, look for discolored older bricks with a

flair of cottage garden planting. Planting schemes moved away from Victorian restrictions and turned to a more naturalistic or cottage garden style. These plantings related to the site and soil conditions, the local identity and how the plants grew naturally.Plants were grown in drifts and allowed to spill
This might be a good garden to wrap up this design lesson with. It might sound obvious, but assuming you have at least average gardening skills, your plants will grow larger than they were the day you installed them. Unlike interior design, in which your coffee table more or less remains

This house is an excellent example of Meyer & Meyer’s work transforming existing homes into classic New England shingle-style architecture. The owner’s program called for specific elements to be included in the design, including wraparound porches on the front of the house, a completely rebuilt second floor, and an addition to the north side that included a new master suite wing and library. The house sits on a high bluff with dramatic views of the Atlantic Ocean. The existing cottage’s foundation, chimney, and...

English garden style combining multi colors of perennials
colorful cottage garden. Tip: Be sure to check the estimated mature size on the variety you choose. It can range anywhere from approximately 1 to 3 feet high. This will affect your plans for placement when you're plotting out a planting plan.

Cottage; privacy fence in front of front door
coastal cottage garden is a natural choice in Nantucket, along the Gulf Coast, in Santa Cruz or on Puget Sound. Look for hardier perennials in traditional cottage garden colors, such as pinks, purples and blues, and mass them together for a charming effect, especially against the weathered gray often found
coastal cottage. Gravel paths work equally well with cottage and coastal styles, and the lack of a traditional lawn is completely appropriate for the setting.

Create a cottage garden that's right for you. It makes sense to work with the space and the climate you have. If you live in the Pacific Northwest, great; you have a similar climate to England and you can probably recreate a Cotswold garden. In other climates, you'll need to be more creative. In the upper
