A beautiful cottage garden, profuse with vibrant blooms.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
9. There’s no such thing as too much color. There are no color rules in a cottage garden. No matter how many pinks, oranges, purples and reds you mix, they won’t clash, as the garden by this lovely stone house in Santa Barbara, California, proves.
7. Go wild with flowers. Another lawn alternative (though somewhat less water saving) is to go absolutely over-the-top with flowers. The classic cottage garden look does require some weeding, but it is well worth the effort for its cheering effect. Just be sure to choose flowers that bloom at different times of year, so your garden will never be completely bare.
