Yarrow Point ResidenceModern Landscape, Seattle

Recognizing the natural constraints on a narrow, wooded site with substantial topographic variation, southern exposure, and small private framed views to Cozy Cove, the architect, landscape architect, and owners collaborated to create a design that focused on the preservation of existing vegetation and the relationship of interior and exterior spaces. This partnership formed the framework for the architecture and garden design to respond to one another.

The owner’s goal for their home was to maintain a strong and vital connection to the site, creating a fusion between home and landscape with a modern edge. The landscape design emphasizes structured and formal solutions in and around the building and its social spaces, while the site’s perimeter is soft and natural. The result of these efforts is a strong and clear connection between architecture and garden, integrating a palette of both modern and natural elements.

8. Reshuffle your container layout. Sometimes all containers need is a regrouping, rather than a replanting, for a fresh perspective. Take stock of all your potted plants and see which ones could work together as part of a fall container vignette. Do you have ornamental grasses in one pot that complement the leaf tones of a plant in a container across the yard? If the light requirements of the plants match, move the containers together as a combination.

Bergenia cordifolia, with its large green leaves, fills a container in Seattle.Ground covers or miniatures. There are a number of hosta cultivars that measure under 1 foot in height. These work well in containers or in the garden as ground covers or accent plants. Alternatives for this type of hosta include:Wild gingers (Asarum spp.), some of which are evergreenCanada mayflower (Maianthemum canadense, zones 3 to 8)Lily of the valley (Convallaria majalis, zones 2 to 7)Bergenia (several species), which has long-lasting, large and glossy leavesViolets (Viola spp.)Caution: Canada mayflower and lily of the valley are toxic if eaten. Lily of the valley is an invasive species in the northeastern U.S.

Need something bigger than a single pot? The same thriller-spiller-filler formula can be expanded to a group of pots that work together to create a unified composition. This grouping of pots filled with flax (Phormium var.) and assorted succulents follows the thriller-spiller-filler formula.
