Hmm, I'm seeing echinacea and daylilies ... Sophie is a plant master and has used too many plants to count in this garden. I would highly recommend hiring her, she's one of the most talented landscape architects I know and her prices are reasonable. Her info is listed here:

If you turned around, you'd get this beautiful hillside garden view. The low wall is also made of shale found on the property.

Extensive border gardens on a hillside welcome those who come up the driveway.Lesson from this garden: Using a simple grassy rectangle, or tapis vert, surrounded by border gardens is a simple and striking way to design your yard. Check the tags on your plants when you are placing them so that they go from shortest to tallest from the edge of the grass to the edge of the garden.See the rest of this home and garden
Then the owners, who are landscape architects, brought in 20 dump-truck loads of fill to build up the slope and create beautiful gardens and outdoor spaces. Keeping the footprint of the house small gave them the space and budget to take advantage of the cottage's amazing landscape potential.
