New England Perennial Flower Gardens

Riverfront garden with fescue-lawn path and regionally native plants including oak-leaf hydrangea, new hampshire purple geranium, creeping juniper, coreopsis, rudbeckia and blue-eyed grass. These gardens require minimal water and maintenance and they offer seasonal variation, color and food for local birds and butterflies. Angela Kearney Minglewood Designs

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Cottage Garden Style
Lose the lawn. In a true cottage garden, a lawn is rarely the focal point. If you do want a bit of green, consider using grass as your path material. A low-mow fescue will keep your maintenance levels down while adding to the informal feel.

I like this too, not as much as some of the more wild photos. My concern about some of the more wild photos is that the plots will only look good when everything is blooming. I want interest year round as much as I can.
