What an amazing looking garden. I hope to have one that beautiful someday. It will be a lot of work.

mariellen - I live in the bay area Nor Cal. I like the trees in this landscape, can I get the name? Will they grow in CA? I recognize many of the species in the flower beds, hoping I can work this for my own yard! Thanks for the ideas, this is lovely.

Beautiful design & choice of plants. This type of garden does require a lot of maintenance. Perfect for those garden lovers. I love the yellow / blue combo. We use that in our annual planters.

variety and heartiness - I noticed that the design comes from MN, would these variety of plants work on the east coast (NYC area)? Also, I recognize some varieties but not the dense greens (herbs, perhaps?) can you identify those for me ;)? Love, love, love this. Thanks!

Location? - Where are you located because I think that the scenery and the landscaping are both very beautiful. The front entrance and pathway look like a house I walked up to when I was talking to multiple people about insurance one summer. I wish I could go back to the area because it was very nice. http://www.denverautoinsurancecompany.com/Auto_Insurance_Denver_CO.html

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Debra Prinzing added this to Garden Design Essentials: Balance
This abundant entry garden feels thoroughly in balance as the composition draws on elements that are both symmetrical and asymmetrical. The flagstone path creates a strong, straight axis to the home's front door. There are many plants that mirror each other on either side of it, including two shade trees that flank the path. But thanks to the freely flowing annuals and perennials that have minds of their own, nothing is too perfect or too matchy-matchy. And that's why we're charmed by this scene.
LuAnn Brandsen added this to Pathway Plantings That Please the Senses
1. EdiblesYour first thought for sidewalk plantings probably doesn't include vegetables and herbs, but there's good reason to add them into the mix. In addition to broadening your plant choices, they provide rich texture and an element of surprise. Layer in edible flowers like nasturtiums and pansies for a sidewalk smorgasbord.
Materials:Crushed stone and gravel are inexpensive and easy to install, though the gravel will scatter and need replenishing from time to time. Gravel paths and driveways are also difficult to keep cleared of snow.Concrete is long lasting (15 to 30 years and beyond) and smooth, and has a modern look. It does tend to crack in cold conditions and does not take well to patches and repairs. Asphalt has more give than concrete, making it a good choice for cold climates, and is easily patched and repaired. However, asphalt breaks down more quickly, sometimes requiring repairs or replacement within five years, even in a mild climate.Cobblestone and pavers are the longest-lasting option — a cobblestone driveway or walk can last 100 years or more! They are also by far the most expensive options and require the most work initially to prepare the area and lay a foundation for the stone. Repairs are fairly easy with both; you can replace individual stones as needed, making upkeep costs relatively low.
