    Hydrangeas are not known for being drought tolerant. They like shade or partial sun and they cannot be left for too long without water. I'm amazed by how well my garden is 'hanging in there' with very little water and mature plants like these would live through a water cutback - but they are not really drought tolerant plants.

    Nancy, you're right, hydrangeas are not drought tolerant, especially the mopheads, and they need plenty of water in summer. I live in Vancouver, and although I have the drip watering system around them, those located in an almost full sun location require an additional daily watering with a hose. The lacecaps are less demanding though. But, the result is so rewarding!

    The trees are Little Gem Magnolias in an espalier form.

    Hydrangeas always look great in a traditional setting. Make sure to cut them back annually

    The walls are a slate colored brick imported from England, making the wall quite expensive.

    The benches were custom made out of mahogany for this project.

    Secure your borders. The most obvious place you’ll find a garden wall or fence is along the property lines. In tract house subdivisions, expedience and cost frequently result in not much more than a simple wood fence. This approach meets the developer’s needs but contributes very little, aesthetically speaking. In contrast, this classic, beautifully crafted brick wall not only defines a peaceful courtyard, but also is tall and solidly built, assuring security. Another benefit of masonry walls is their rigidity and density, blocking and reflecting unwanted noise.

    MUCH smaller scale, but this is Heaven with hydrangeas.
