What is the name of the tree in the corne and is it OK in Ontario? - My back yard will be sunny as it faces north but this could easily be adapted to sun loving plants also. What is your opinion on this and what plants would you recommend?

Hello Patricia, thanks for your question. The tree in the corner is an older mature Japanese Maple. I recommend that you seek out the advice of a landscape professional in your area in Ontario. Perhaps a local nursery or searching here on HOUZZ. Someone with more knowledge of your specific climate and site conditions will be better suited to help you on plant recommendations for your property. Good luck with your project!

Hello andeka, thanks for your question. We did not use any edging between the lawn and garden bed. Just cut in a nice cut edge using a flat shovel. This technique is more organic and easy to maintain. Good luck with your project!

flower type - Hello! What a beautiful garden. Can you please tell me what type of flower is on the right? The one with the purplish flowers. Is that a hydrangea? Thank you so much!

It's possibly a 'Annabelle' type Hydrangea. There is one called "Invincible spirit' that's reliably pink in colour each year. Google the name for more info. I hope this helps!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A tree with a sculptural form can also serve as a corner focal point.
