Its hard to name all the flowers since the picture isn't focused on the flowers. I can see petunias, cosmos, sage, lambs ears, and verbena.

Brook, I wish I could tell you. We worked in conjunction with an Interior decorator that chose the trim colors for this house. It is a pretty color. Thanks for the question. Troy

Thanks for feedback. Is it likely that the same or some company will make it in vinyl?

I'm not familiar enough with vinyl to know. I apologize I can not be more of a help.

This stone is called "Moss Rock" which is a type of field stone with fungi found growing on it. We purchased it from our local stone yard and asked for a thickness of 2-4 inches. Thanks!

Adimire this wall/fence very much - I'd love to create this look for the front of my small cottage home on Long Island. How high is the fence, stone wall height and picket height for combined height. Do you think pvc picket can be used instead of wood, I'd hate to have to worry about painting it and getting paint on the stone..Thanks much.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Cottage Garden Style
This edge of a sloping driveway provides the perfect spot for a contained cottage look that also brightens the edge of the driveway. In this case, the picket fence is keeping the cottage garden out of the yard, rather than in it.
Solution B: Create a shallow raised border following the slope and fill it with an abundance of seasonal color.The greatest challenge with this particular border is preventing the soil either from spilling onto the driveway or being washed downhill. A simple cobblestone edging provides an easy boundary to plant against, while the dense planting creates a mat of roots to keep the soil in place. Weeding sloping gardens is not an easy task, but one way to reduce this is simply by covering the soil with more plants. Clearly this homeowner understands that and has created a delightful cutting garden that provides months of color while also covering the soil in such a way as to reduce the ability for weeds to take hold.
