Twin Cities Suburban Farmhouse - Glade Gardens. Minnesota Garden Design.

The entire back yard (including all views from the farm house) is highlighted by weaving shady glade gardens. The garden vs. grass line was delineated by watching the sun-shade patterns through the course of a summer day. Credit: Tad Anderson. All rights exclusively reserved.

Grass only does well in our northern gardens when it has a half day or more of sunshine. I tracked the edges of the shade in this back yard before we outlined the beds. Where it was sunny for half the day, I integrated grass. Where it was shady for the majority of the day, I designed the shady perennial glade plant selections. The gardens are a definitive backdrop, viewed from the farmhouse.
