An Elegant Front Garden

Plant Combinations, Spring Borders, Summer Borders, Fall Borders, Winter Borders


This spectacular front yard is a beautiful marriage of colors, shapes and textures. How not to be sensitive to the Kangaroo Paws (Anigozanthus), whose bright red colors are joyfully echoed by the Conebush (Leucadendron), a fascinating, dynamic, evergreen shrub that features a dense and heavy display of vivid red bracts in the cooler months? Both of them cheerfully contrast with the fuzzy, silver-gray Blue Fescue (Festuca glauca), the erect, narrow dark reddish-brown leaves of the New Zealand Flax (Phormium) and the graceful, rich burgundy-colored Fountain Grass (Pennisetum setaceum rubrum).

These creative plantings raise interest and confer a rich and casual elegance to the area.

Created by Debora Carl landscape Design, this low maintenance and water wise front garden is a welcoming touch!
