Low mow is great for environment.
I'd like to encourage birds and butterflies.
I like the idea of more formal near the house with gradual shift to informal farther away.
We can do something similar on 14.
Really would like to add more wild flowers on 14.
It is well thought out, but still casual looking.
Dale does this.
Blues, purples and whites.
I could do this with my green garden bench.
Use of grasses and groundcovers
I find the unbordered path attractive and think it would suit our country gardens.
Love the moss between the stones, and you don't have to worry about mortar chipping out. This is much more natural.

Changing foliage color
Blooms late summer
Blooms with blue forget-me-not like flowers in spring.
Gorgeous, and lower maintenance than many flowering plants.
Variety of colors, shapes, sizes.
Like the planned wild look.
This would be nice at the side of Gillian and Russell's house.
#1 of 6 steps to get a garden off to a glowing start
Lovely way to cover a slope.
We will have our antique gate followed by the vegetable garden. Just have to figure out how to incorporate the circular drive.
Love the use of the old door as a garden gate.
We in zone 3 could subsitute a lovely clematis.
A small water feature is one of my desires.
I like the idea of garden niches.
Like this idea.
Beautiful fall color.
Either orange or pink would make stunning additions.
Ginko tree (ginko biloba) grows in zone 3.
Tupelo (Nyssa sylvatica) grows in zone 3. Gorgeoous fall color, 30 - 50' high. Must look up shape.
Ilex verticillata, Winterberry, grows in zone 3. Sometimes called Canada Holly. Beautiful bright red berries. Wonderful fall and winter interest plant. Full sun, 6-8 feet tall, especially good for low wet areas where drainage is an issue.
Love the curves.
