neat but needs help

douglasont(6 ON)May 31, 2010

Hi: Here they are! Find a few pics of my front yard below. I posted a few days ago for help to unify the collector's garden.(my personal definition of "collector" - I buy or get 'one' plant from someone and tuck it in)You might notice I have a few multiples - I'm trying.

I hope to use a few of the suggestions: 1. unify with ground cover 2. unifying with a few square cut limestone rocks - in scale to the landscape.

Any other suggestions out there now that you can see the situation?

I find it all very neat and tidy - I like keeping it this way - and now that I have got rid of the thugs (a 2 year process)- I still think there is something lacking.

Very lovely and diverse. It looks young and should fill more in future seasons so the areas that are sparse will fill eventualy. However you could perhaps do a ground carpet phlox. These will grow about 18" are mounded, flower in spring and are evergreen the rest of the season. The ones I have put on a great show for me. You could also do this in the foundation bed. I call it skirting. But trust yourself you already have a lovely home and yard and are doing a great job. The lawn as well is very nice.
