North Arlington Residence


Woodland Garden: A curvaceous pea gravel path directs the visitor through the woodland garden located at the back and back side of the house.
It is planted with drifts of Erie and Chindo Viburnumns, Oak leaf Hyrangeas, Astilbe, Ferns, Hostas.A row of hollies was added to block the view to the son's home.

gravel path - How do you clear the leaves from the path without blowing gravel everywhere? I had crushed granite between flagstone and it didn't mix with my large oak trees that shed tons of leaves. Broom or blower made a mess of the gravel. I love the more natural look though so would like suggestions for an alternative. Thank you.

To achieve this look it is best to plant the astilbe 18" -24" on center

Be aware that your gravel is probably going to be all over your garden. It likes to wander.

Lainago,

I have several homes in the New England area and I always use and recommend using a tall shrub like a Siberian Elm. Planting them 3' apart will quickly give you a nice full wall and even though they grow 45' tall you can easily trim them to size. They are a relatively inexpensive option "Excitinggardens.com"

This allows me to go and pick up something more expensive to use in front of them like a jumbo hydrangea with flowers 6" - 1" at about $25 each they are a nice extra touch but because I do the Siberian Elm in the back I only need 1 about every 5'

Ten to twenty feet this is tall but needs to be skinny.. .. seems like you need a hedge to me for the privacy... How about a hornbeam hedge? You can keep them clipped like the Siberian Elm Matt is suggesting. If I think of something else I will let you know.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Laura Gaskill added this to May Checklist for a Smooth-Running Home
Maintain and repair garden paths. Create neat edges, fill in gravel paths with fresh gravel and replace or reposition broken stepping stones.Check irrigation systems and hoses. Turn on the irrigation system and take a walk through your yard to make sure everything is working properly. Make adjustments and repairs as needed.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Unwind in Your Own Private Garden Escape
Less concrete. Go natural. After a day of work in the concrete and asphalt jungle, who needs to come home to more of that? To me, a go-to garden is all about people and plants, how they interact and coexist. Unless you have a good reason to use excessive hardscaping, why not use mulch or gravel instead? Both are permeable, inexpensive and, most important, feel great under your feet. Mulch pathways cushion the feet and bring to mind the seemingly audible silence of a wilderness retreat. Gravel crunches underfoot, making the most delightful sound.
