Side garden, plantings elevated to eye level
bamboo in lower planting strip by driveway? for privacy?
Good idea for how to plant on side yard
& at some sections it bulges quite substantially into our limited yard space. I would like to re-dress the wall, install a better drainage system & plant a screen of bamboo. This wall is pretty much exactly what I want - I would pot the bamboo and the pebbles would allow drainage into a runoff gutter
Bamboo. Heralded as one of the luckiest feng shui symbols, the enduring and hydroponic bamboo plant brings peace and luck to any environment. Bamboo also doubles as a durable barrier and decorative plant in any Zen-inspired garden or walkway.
paved in easy-care decomposed granite, making it easy to navigate. The plantings are elevated to eye level, thanks to the low lumber retaining wall. Bamboo is a good choice because its roots are contained. Plus, it's an easy plant to maintain with hedge clippers.

this reminds me of your deck, of course your beds would be high, but it gives you a visual of plants
Planting area within decking
A rooftop is also a great place for sun-loving veggies and salad greens. Planting rows on the diagonal makes this little bed a charming throwback to the monastic potager.

section of the pavilion, with feature timber panelling, ensures that there is shade poolside and look fantastic next to another mature Frangipani. The overall look and feel of the project is sleek and contemporary, with plants chosen to emphasise the shapes of the design and to add contrasting colours
Take cuttings 50cm long. Leave to dry one week. Plant in light sandy soil not too much water
Scent can be a bonusPlants, such as the frangipani above, are not only drought- and salt-tolerant, they add fragrance to the garden. Most love full sun and free-draining soil but will not tolerate frost. Grow them where you can appreciate their divine perfume, which intensifies at night.

I noticed that the design comes from MN, would these variety of plants work on the east coast (NYC area)? Also, I recognize some varieties but not the dense greens (herbs, perhaps?) can you identify those for me ;)? Love, love, love this. Thanks!
Beautiful design & choice of plants. This type of garden does require a lot of maintenance. Perfect for those garden lovers. I love the yellow / blue combo. We use that in our annual
Love the nasturtium. Definitely want native (and drought-resistant) plants in the front yard.
Stone pathway and flowers planted along the path.
cottage style entrance irregular plantings
Mixture of low and high plants, colors, symmetrical but informal.
Front walk is completely bordered in flowers/plants. Love it!
