Along the edge of the walkway, we used a boxwood variety called 'Wintergreen'. This is a smaller growing variety that takes well to being clipped. Let us know if we can help with your project. Thanks.

Thanks so much for the response! We are looking for a hedge that we can maintain at 1' x 1' along our sidewalk. Would this be a good choice? Or would you suggest something else in Knoxville, TN. Thanks again for your quick response!!

These were 2 large existing trees already on the site. I believe the left one is a Live Oak and the right one is a Red Oak. Thanks.

On the right of the photo against the house, we used boxwood in front and Pittosporum against the house. Thanks.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Debra Prinzing added this to Give Your Garden an Arresting Point of View
The destination is the journey. Formality doesn't have to be stuffy, especially when you give it a beautiful focal point. In this Mediterranean-inspired parterre, detailed planting beds (outlined in low boxwood hedging) define each quadrant. There is plenty of space devoted to a generously scaled walkway of decomposed granite that runs through the center of this garden.And while you will want to take a walk here, you are given specific clues about the direction to take, thanks to an ocher-glazed urn placed at the center of the path. How nice that four live oak trees were already in place to flank the urn, creating a hard-to-ignore destination in the garden.
