A Side Yard Beauty
This serene, curving limestone paver path would be a real treat for any side yard. It is beautifully defined by a combination of shade loving plants, featuring golden, bright or dark green foliage, splashes of magenta and purple blooms, which delightfully contrast with the blue-gray clapboard walls and immaculate white trims of this Cape Cod style cottage. The sweet addition of a birdbath creates a focal point and adds charm to the area. This stunning and extremely inviting walkway has been created by RDM Architecture. If you wish to replicate this path, we suggest the use of shade-loving perennials such as Bleeding Hearts with their profuse blooms or Astilbe with their ornamental, bright feathery flowers. They will add color and beauty to the dark areas of your landscape and nicely complement Hostas, Ferns, Coral Bells (Heuchera) or any other selection of shade plants you have already made.
