Bluestone set in gravel? - Hi This garden is spectacular! I'm trying to design a patio that is somewhat impervious and will allow water to seep between the stones (a local requirement). Are these pavers set in gravel or on a concrete pad? This is exactly the look I want but I thought I'd have to set the stones on concrete to get them to be perfectly level and aligned. Thanks.

I this particular case, the Myrtle is planted only along the front edge of the bed and the remaining plantings are behind the ground cover.

Thanks so much! I'll get someone to clear the groundcover from behind and around the elephant ears, leaving it in front.

No, this exposure is east west and the grasses are along the edge, where sun pours in. Maybe dappled light, but the majority of ornamental grasses require sun.

The materials you see are not floor tiles, but a combination of concrete pavers as a border material and patterned bluestone as the infield and main body of this walk and terrace. Both very available products in the northeast. I hope this helps!! Thank you.

Yes, "Big Blue" Hosta, but the ground cover is Periwinkle/Mrytle.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Great Design Plant: Periwinkle
Here, a carpet of periwinkle borders a shady patio.Planting notes Tilling the soil with peat moss will speed up the spreading process.Space plants about 18" apart.Soak the plants and soil.Add a light cover of mulch.If you opted not to till with peat moss, fertilize.Water for a month after planting. If you are weeding the area, be careful not to weed out new growth that will pop up between the original plants.Once the plant is established, it will not need much maintenance. Just make sure it doesn't spread beyond where you want it to.
Le jardinet added this to Monochromatic Garden Magic Done 7 Ways
It can be a challenge to create a monochromatic garden when both sunny and shady environments have to be considered together. Here the designer has added soft apricot daylilies (Hemerocallis hybrids) to the sunnier side, echoing the colors of the shade-loving grasses and hostas. Butter-yellow roses, such as 'Graham Thomas', would also have been pretty. Or perhaps a sweep of 'Mellow Yellow' spirea (Spiraea thunbergii 'Ogon', zones 5 to 9).
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Explore Your Garden Personality: The Extrovert
Encourage animated conversation and laughter with wide-open spaces. Larger, more open spaces tend to fuel boisterous expression, while smaller spaces, as a rule, tend to feel quieter and more intimate. What if you don’t have the luxury of a large, open space? Let’s look at some design techniques to compensate for that.

Astilbe - tall pink plants in back, american boxwood is the plant for the back higher border, myrtle is the ground cover in front. It is kept trimmed towards the front to allow plants to grow in back. cutting back and thinning out is a must for most ground covers.
