Brookline BrownstoneTraditional Landscape, Boston

The bluestone patio was screened from the neighbors with a wall of arborvitae. Lush perennial gardens provide flower cutting opportunities and color to offset the green wall.

    I believe the furniture is from Patiostore.com I missed your question initially, sorry it took this long to answer.

    These are Thuja occidentalis 'Emerald Green' (Emerald Green Arborvitae). We are a little too cold in Massachusetts to reliably use Italian Cypress.

    The umbrellas came from Patiostore.com - they are the Pagoda style, ordered with alternating stripes.

    Thanks for the question! The purple globes in the foreground are Allium 'Gladiator' (ornamental onion), the pink flowers are Knockout Roses - pink and blush, and the purple spikes are Nepeta racemosa 'Walker's Low' (catmint).

    Thanks for the question. This arborvitae variety will normally grow to about 15 feet tall, with the possibility of reaching 20 feet in completely perfect conditions. It is a dwarf variety that stays narrow and doesn't get too tall, which makes it perfect for tight spaces like this.

And then there is the English garden, for those of us who simply cannot get enough colors and love to mix them all.

8. Go bold with your flower color palette. The best colors in the garden come from plants. Do your research in Houzz's garden section for your zone and the types of plants you like — and don't be shy about studying plant tags and asking for help when you hit the nursery. How have you added bold color to your patio, deck or other outdoor room? Let us know in the Comments section, and please post a picture if you have one.
