    What a great looking landscape. It feels natural while still keeping some obvious detail. I love the clean cool look the plants and stones give off. I want to use some of these ides in my own backyard. http://www.cvtslandscape.com/services/landscaping/

    The grass on the left is Japanese Forest grass. Takes light and some shade. Easy to grow. Dies back in winter in colder climates, but comes back in spring.

“Since you have months of planning ahead without having to rush to get plants in the ground, you can carefully choose the best plants, materials and design for your space.” — Steve AsbellThis ideabook gives you a lot to think about during that long wait for the thaw. I will add one more bit of advice to Asbell’s: Get a good garden ideabook going. There is so much information on Houzz about plants, paths, materials, regional planning, edible gardens, getting rid of the lawn and more, and it’s all organized for you in the Outdoor Living section.Full story: The Best Winter Garden Project?

9. Dress up a side yard. Side yards are often neglected and relegated to housing garbage cans and compost bins. They also don’t always get as much sun if they’re in a cramped area, and frequent traffic can result in a trodden path of mud and weeds. While side yards are usually pretty tight, they can be a valuable element of your overall garden design if used properly.The side yard shown here might not be appropriate if you’d need to move lawnmowers and wheelbarrows over the carefully planted path, but the effect is quite lovely if having open access isn’t necessary. Alternately, you can plant gardens on each side of the yard, leaving a path of turf or hardscaping wide enough for a lawnmower or barbecue grill. Just be sure not to crowd the side of the house with plants, since doing so can invite problems with rot, mildew and insects. Side yards are also not a good place to plant things with aggressive roots.More: What to Do in Your Garden Now

10. Make a small space feel bigger. Repeated patches of chartreuse bring a sense of brightness to this narrow garden, which might otherwise have felt cramped. Plants with variegated leaves, fine texture and broad forms help liven up the setting, and the orange lily provides good contrast.
