Do you garden in the back and front,
and what style garden do you have?
I have perennials, clematis, another favourite, and dwarf trees out front. I lean toward cottage garden style, but really love the look of a garden bordered by a neat row of dwarf conifers. I guess that's more like a mixed garden. For winter interest I also have evergreen plantings throughout the garden. Then I fill in the rest of the spots with lots of perennials. It's taking a long time to get the look I want, but I'll keep tweaking it until it looks similar to the picture in my head.
I have a small veggie patch out back, but will be adding some roses, and a few perennials when I can.
What about you? Where do you garden and what's your style?
