Falon Land Studio LLC added this to How to Design and Plant in Dry, Sunny SpotsApr 9, 2015

Use plants that bloom. Prolific flowering plants, like wildflowers and plants used for cutting gardens, need a lot of sun to produce many blooms. A full-sun exposure is a prime opportunity to create a garden bursting with flowers, as long as you use plants that are drought tolerant as well.

Frank Organ added this to Want a More Colorful, Natural Garden? Try a Perennial MeadowAug 3, 2014

The perennial border popularized in Victorian gardens was labor intensive and very seasonal, requiring a great amount of horticultural skill to create a stunning kaleidoscope of summer color. Garden designer Gertrude Jekyll included intricate, colorful borders in many of her Arts and Crafts–style gardens. Maintaining these borders required splitting the perennial plants and replanting every three to four years to maintain their vigor, staking and tying to keep plants in order, and deadheading and weeding throughout the season to keep the border tidy. The design of the perennial meadow has changed the way we interact with the plantings. Whereas the herbaceous border was created as a focal point, or a feature to be viewed, rather like a painting, the perennial meadow takes its form from the prairie style, where we are surrounded by the plantings or are led through them by pathways. The perennial meadow gives us the opportunity to use a wide range of plants and grasses to create a stylized version of a traditional meadow that perhaps has nostalgic resonance with our past.

Frank Organ added this to Take Your Garden on a Rural Route With Plant-Dominant DesignsMay 8, 2013

Grasses don't have be allowed to grow naturally to introduce a feeling of new ruralism into the garden. This rough-cut lawn brings the feeling of a pasture right up to the walls of the house, while seminaturalistic plantings meander under the trees beyond.

Cool, green and filled with plants. It's a look I'll never tire of.

I like the colors and varying heights, it gives a softer, more wild feel to the lawn
