    I have seen lavender do OK in partial sun, but it can get a but leggy and flower a bit less. It's just a great plant if you are in need of something that can handle salt air exposure. It also smells amazing!

    These stepping stones are made from slabs of old granite; I've also done this detail with fieldstone slabs too.

    How do you keep them from sinking? We have clay and everything sinks eventually, even with a base of sand and gravel.

    Hi there--we used several purple plants here. Common chives, Nepeta f. 'Walker's Low' and Salvia 'May Night'--all very tough plants!

    Is there Russian Sage in the mix? I have worked on my slope for two years. I have all except the Salvia 'May Night' and have decided to make the upper slope a continuation of this sea of purple. They are also deer resistant - a must in my area.

3. Choose a Soothing Color PaletteCool colors like blues, silvers and greens, as well as neutrals, can feel more serene in a landscape than hotter reds, yellows, pinks and oranges. That being said, the colors that make you feel calm and peaceful can be different from those of the next person. Select plants and hardscape materials in colors that you personally find calming, and arrange them together in large groupings. For example, a purple monochromatic planting of salvia and catmint give a relaxing feeling to this path in a Portland, Maine, landscape by Matthew Cunningham Landscape Design.Browse flowers and plants by type, color and growing needs

Nice use of lavender and what looks like pincushion flowers along the walkway.
