Dakin has been working with the owners of this site realize their dream of cultivating a rich and meaningful landscape around their home. Because of their deep engagement with their land and garden, the landscape has guided the entire design process, from architecture to civil engineering to landscape design. All architecture on site is oriented toward the garden, a park-like, multi-use environment that includes a walking labyrinth, restored prairie, a Japanese garden, an orchard, vegetable beds, berry brambles, a croquet lawn and a charred wood outdoor shower. Dakin pays special attention to materials at every turn, selecting an antique sugar bowl for the outdoor fire pit, antique Japanese roof tiles to create blue edging, and stepping stones imported from India. In addition to its diversity of garden types, this permacultural paradise is home to chickens, ducks, and bees. A complex irrigation system was designed to draw alternately from wells and cisterns. 3x5lion.png Dakin has also had the privilege of creating an arboretum of diverse and rare trees that she based on Olmsted’s design for Central Park. Trees were selected to display a variety of seasonally shifting delights: spring blooms, fall berries, winter branch structure. Mature trees onsite were preserved and sometimes moved to new locations.

And, not to mention, it’s a sure way of garnering a bit of neighbor envy! Wondering where to get started? Let’s kick things off with flower bed designs. Acting as the centerpiece of your garden, flower beds take some planning to look their best but reward you with breathtaking views when completed. Researching flower bed ideas can seem a bit overwhelming, but luckily Houzz is here to help! Whether you are looking for large or small flower bed ideas, designs centered around perennials or annual plants, the vast photo gallery of flower bed ideas below are sure to inspire some of your greatest green thumb work yet! If you aren’t quite sure where to start, here are some helpful tips that can guide you through the flower bed design process.

1. Raised Flower Beds

When you are thinking about which flower bed is right for your space, think about the ease of care that accompanies it. Raised flower beds, which are made of stone pavers and blocks, are known for making plant care easier, especially during the offseason. Aside from the ease of care, the raised style acts as a highly visual centerpiece of the garden, making them perfect to show off to house guests!

2.Flower Garden Paths

Create an organized, flowing garden that welcomes leisurely strolls by opting for a flower garden path. Make unsuspecting guests’ first impression of your garden a lasting one by crafting flower garden paths or walkways as a guide. Transition from different florals and greenery throughout the walkway to maximize the beauty experienced with each step down the path.

3. Garden Edging with Stones

Consider planting flowers in an organized fashion in rows to create a uniform look. Make unsuspecting guest’s first impStonework is a classic choice for edging flower beds due to both its form and function. Opt to use stones to create a complementary border around your flower bed to amplify the aesthetic of your garden by mixing depths and textures. Flower beds with rocks or stones also help keep maintenance low, as you won’t need to worry about overgrown grass invading your flowers.

4. Slanted Flower Beds

Add some drama to your flower bed design by incorporating a slanted base. If you want to heighten the sloping effect, plant your flowers accordingly by height and flower type for consistency and to ensure you can see each plant when it blooms. You can even mix a slanted flower bed and stone edging together for a bold front yard look that is sure to catch the eye of everyone who passes by your home.

5. Flowers around Trees

Surround your trees with a ring of flowers to transform your garden into an oasis. Mix two or more flower colors together to create a vibrant design. Whether you want to add plants that thrive in shade such as hydrangeas or early spring blooming bulb perennials such as daffodils, there are plenty of options to help you design a beautiful flower bed at the base of your trees.
