Austin Residence modern landscape
 

Austin Residence

This project was designed to compliment the clients simple lifestyle and minimalist taste. The entry courtyard is cool and clean, the sideyard has a wide expanse of lawn surrounded with low maintenance shrubs and trees. The back deck was made for entertaining. Eating and living areas defined by not only furniture but with large planters used as "room" dividers. The rest of the garden is mass planted with groundcover, shrubs and perennials.

Creative Garden Spaces: fyi, there is a brand of plants named "Stepable." However, it does appear that 'Little Blue Fairy Plant' can indeed be trod upon.

The "Austin" mentioned here is the name of the client where this photo was taken... in Portland, Oregon. It needs shade and it is probably too dry in Texas to be sustainable since it would need supplemental water.

Yes, this is a "Stepable" and can have light foot traffic as it does here on this path.

It would not stand up in combination to ivy as the ivy would quickly overtake this ground cover. While this groundcover spreads it does so slowly and can be controlled easily.

Thanks so much for the inquiry! For mor information on Stepables available in your area go to http://www.stepables.com

Thank you, this is one of my favorite combinations too. The "grass" on the left is Carex morrowii 'Aureovariegata'- Variegated Sedge. It is a clumping sedge, tolerates shade or some sun, is evergreen and gets to about 12" tall. It doesn't need to be and shouldn't be cut back in the winter like other grasses.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

As the saying goes, form follows function. So first consider how the surface will be used and what's the most appropriate material to support that use. Loose materials for more casual spaces. I consider loose materials like crushed rock, gravel and shale (also bark mulch) when I want an informal garden pathway or lounging area. They usually cost less and require less labor than other materials, and you don't have to be a master builder to make them look good. But because these materials can be movable after placement, you'll need to do some maintenance to keep them from wandering off.Hard materials for more formal areas. On the other hand, hard materials such as flagstone, brick, tile, concrete and lumber lend themselves to more "civilized" applications like patios, decks and entryways. These generally withstand a lot of traffic and can easily be cleaned with a broom, a washing down (preferably not in water-scarce climates) or an electric blower, if that's your tool of choice.Visual appeal. But we seek more than just utility. The first thing we notice in a garden is its visual appeal and sense of style — not how easily ketchup stains can be vanquished. Take cues from the materials and finishes of your house as well as influences from the natural environment.Environmental impact. Think about where the materials originated, whether they come from recycled sources and whether they are permeable. If you don't know, ask.Cost. For most of us, cost is the elephant in the room. The best advice I can offer here is to not be penny wise and pound foolish. I've found time and again that a bit more expense (sometimes a lot) on the front end assures that you've selected the best floor for the job, the one least likely to come back and bite you later.

Divide and plant what you already enjoy. If you have limited resources, divide herbaceous plants in the spring to give you more of what you already enjoy. Using more of the same plant has a surprisingly bold and beautiful effect. Here, irregular stepping stones were made more romantic by planting Mazus repans around them. Nandina (right), brunnera (in path) and sedges keep the palette simple and graceful.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Explore Your Garden Personality: The Collector
Use a ground cover as a unifying element. Just as an area rug can tie a room full of disparate furniture together, a ground cover can weave cohesiveness into a disparate collection of plants. Notice how this carpet of Mazus reptans (USDA zones 5 to 8) brings unity to this collection of sedges, ferns, nandina and Brunnera.

Rediscover simplicity. Sometimes the devil is in the details and less is more. If your garden collection is frantically driving you instead of bringing you peaceful enjoyment, it may be time for decisions and change. I know many collectors who have reached this point. Evaluate your plants; take note of those that are performing well and those that aren’t. Consider planting a single species en masse. In the end you won’t be sorry.

the stones with the pretty flowers in between - could do this as a walkway in the front of the house when we tear out the sidewalk... would have to protect the borders and underneath so that the grass does not overflow onto it.
