All gardeners want to create exciting borders in terms of color, form, or texture. However, pairing plants in a beautiful or dramatic fashion is not always easy. How best to pair perennials or shrubs? What blooms with what and when? What plants to pick for a shady border, dry or wet soils, hot summer or cool winter gardens?
Our goal is to guide you all along the process and provide you with winning design ideas. We collect stunning pictures of gardens created by talented professionals and provide you with all the information you need to easily re-create them at home. We include a list of plants used, quantities needed, and a list of nurseries where to find them.
Create stunning, easy care and long-lasting border combinations like this one.
