2. Install a white fence for curb appeal. A low fence like this is both playful and proper. Dressed with roses and fronted with mounding perennials, it makes a welcome entry from the street or sidewalk. The fence can be strung with greens and lights in the winter season.

1. A Romantic BorderA classic white picket fence festooned with fragrant roses — what could be more romantic? The beauty of this one is that passersby can enjoy the flowers, since they're planted on the outside of the fence.Key design features:Restraint in both color and plantsRepetition of colors and plants down the entire borderGaining height by using the fence to support climbing rosesColor notes:A restrained palette of pink and blue is accented with chartreuse.The deeper shades of purple provide depth, ensuring that this combination will still turn heads even in late summer.Plant selection:Climbing 'Mary Rose' provides height and fragrance.Billowing mounds of golden creeping Jenny (Lysimachia nummularia 'Aurea') and May Night salvia (Salvia nemorosa 'May Night') form the lower tier.These perennials are tolerant of low water, poor soil and hot sun.

Achieve balance through repetition and rhythm. This lovely garden evokes images of Victorian England. Notice how the salvias (Salvia nemorosa 'May Night', zones 5 to 9) are planted in measured intervals. By doing this, the designer has achieved rhythm. The roses provide that soothing thread of continuity.More gorgeous looks for a narrow planting strip

Your cottage-style front garden needn’t be restricted to behind the fence. Along the outside of this front fence, a ‘Mary Rose’ David Austin rose provides height and fragrance, while golden creeping Jenny (Lysimachia nummularia ‘Aurea’) and ‘May Night’ salvia (Salvia nemorosa ‘May Night’) form the lower tier. Stick to two or three colors or varieties of plants for a big effect.
