Wonderful, I could send you some pictures of our front yard and even if we could do a consult via email or phone that would be wonderful.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: English-Style Gardens
If your yard ends at a fence rather than a body of water, you can still use the same principles. A border filled with shrubs and trees helps disguise the fence line and adds interest and depth to the space. Design tip: While a unique tree or shrub always creates a focal point, don't go overboard on variety, especially in a larger planting bed. Planting several of the same shrub or tree throughout the space helps ground and balance the overall design.
J. Peterson Garden Design added this to Texas Gardener's August Garden Checklist
Vacation-proof your garden. Before leaving for the lake cabin, be sure your garden will get the care it needs. If you're only going away for the weekend, you'll probably be okay, but longer periods of time will take a toll on your flowers and shrubs. Ask a neighbor to water for you, leave notes on specific care instructions, and be sure your automatic irrigation system is set to run at the proper times.More:Planting guides for your Texas gardenBrowse flowers, plants and garden design ideas

There are quite a number of plants in this grouping!...The usual english garden plants....the front row has some annual colour like nemesia (white and pink), lady's mantle (lime flowers - perennial), Nepeta 'Blue Wonder' (blue flowers - perennial), Hardy geraniums (perennial and various colours), grass is Carex 'Frosty curls', silver plant is Artemesia 'Powis Castle'. Middle row has bearded iris, siberian iris, Lupines (tall spires of pink), Roses (David Austin types - not blooming in this photo), salvias (both perennial and annual), peonies (not blooming in photo). Back row has Casablanca lilies, californian poppy, Aruncus - common name - Goat's beard, Phlox - (white and pink - blooms late in the season). When planting this type of garden is it important to repeat some plants throughout the border to give it some cohesive thread. For instance I repeated the annual nemesia every 8' or so. When you plant a large leaved plant like the Lady's mantle you could put a more fine textured plant beside it like a hardy geranium or maybe the Nepeta. Add silver foliage throughout the border as a foil for the flowering plants and to "brighten" the border up when the perennials are not blooming. Mix some annuals in throughout... I hope this list of plants helps!
