strolling garden combines steppers and shredded bark as it winds through the border, pausing at a “story stone”. Planting locations minimize disturbance to existing canopy tree roots and provide privacy within the yard.
Looks like a shady garden but what evergreens are doing so well there?
What's the plant with the green flowers near the chairs?
What is the low ground cover type plant on each side of the sidewalk
isn't a problem there unless they're sprayed a few times a year....
Thanks for the question. There is a mix of shade and sun on the property; we've selected a mix of arborvitae and hemlock on the site. Due to the high tree canopy there is a lot of indirect sunlight carrying through to the ground

Love moss and some low planting for the east path to patio
Similar path amidst garden and use Irish moss around it
I love the mystery of the path, it gives you a little adventure as to where it leads.
which USDA Plant Hardiness Zone you're in, or go to your local nursery and ask them about the best options for your area. Consider what part of your yard your pavers will be in. Will they be in shade or sun most of the time? The Irish moss surrounding these pavers works well in this shady side garden.
added a stone pathway to your backyard, you want the steps to feel like they've been there a long time. Patches of moss peeking through the stones is an easy way to create that lived-in look.

Plants Won't Be Choked By Groundcover?
I have elephant ears and some other type of large plant but my groundcover is choking them now. How do you maintain this garden to prevent the groundcover for strangling the other plants. Thank you.
design a patio that is somewhat impervious and will allow water to seep between the stones (a local requirement). Are these pavers set in gravel or on a concrete pad? This is exactly the look I want but I thought I'd have to set the stones on concrete to get them to be perfectly level and aligned.
tiles, but a combination of concrete pavers as a border material and patterned bluestone as the infield and main body of this walk and terrace. Both very available products in the northeast. I hope this helps!! Thank you.

blower made a mess of the gravel. I love the more natural look though so would like suggestions for an alternative. Thank you.
to make a sidewalk out of the pea gravel to keep it neat and tidy without sacrificing the look?
try a vacumm. It might not work depending on strength of suction and weight or size of rock but this works for a river stone flower bed.
studying your gardens and they are absolutely stunning. It is very similar to my style, lush with evergreens, formal/semi formal look with pops of color. However, I have never used whites like you have. I have a 2-3 foot narrow strip of lawn in between a sidewalk and stream. It is partshade, and I need some

this garden! now also featured in this month's Sunset mag.
I see that kangaroo paws are used here, as well as assorted grasses. What are yellow blooming plants below them?
is on a hill like this and I haven't quite known how to go about it. I have been looking into landscape waterfalls salt lake city for some help. Thank you for the great idea.
raise a mound up to achieve a slight incline for a planting bed.
beautiful garden features a wonderful array of grasses and landscape planting, including kangaroo paws and lots of low-water, low-maintenance plants.
Great color for a hill and water run off

useful for very, very wet patio?
Thanks for answer so fast. The title was a typo I meant gravel, but it worked. I'm from Puerto Rico, thatdoes not freeze. I also thought about using a plastic before adding the stones but I don't know if it affcets the soil or if it brings any other touble for draining.
much of a problem, but it's not always the best solution for walkways. Does it freeze where you live? That could also cause a slight tripping hazard. (the picture you posted looks nice though!)
the patio leads really well into the garden
