What Houzz contributors are saying:
Leidner also used boxwood in the garden outside this Dallas home. He suggests that for low-growing boxwood rows that will be clipped, gardeners choose Wintergreen or Winter Gem varieties. Wintergreen boxwood is planted here.
The destination is the journey. Formality doesn't have to be stuffy, especially when you give it a beautiful focal point. In this Mediterranean-inspired parterre, detailed planting beds (outlined in low boxwood hedging) define each quadrant. There is plenty of space devoted to a generously scaled walkway of decomposed granite that runs through the center of this garden.And while you will want to take a walk here, you are given specific clues about the direction to take, thanks to an ocher-glazed urn placed at the center of the path. How nice that four live oak trees were already in place to flank the urn, creating a hard-to-ignore destination in the garden.
