If simplifying a garden to fit your lifestyle is important to you then let’s hope you live in North Andover on Tuesday, Oct. 1, when an expert will give landscape tips to those in attendance at the Andover Garden Club in Massachusetts.
If you don’t, you can still learn all about adapting your garden to your current lifestyle and season in life by picking up a copy of Mary Palmer Dargan’s :Lifelong Landscape Design” book. In it she covers every thing you can think of about transforming your residential property landscape into a utopia you will never want to leave.
In fact, just to see how good the licensed landscape design expert is, take a look at the four landscape looks in this slideshow that she created for some of her clients.
Landscaping a property that borders a lake offers residential home owners a wonderful view like this one created by Mary Palmer Dargan in North Carolina.
Patio plantings that are profuse and plentiful give the impression that a guest in your landscape has just entered a natural garden setting instead of a manufactured one by you.
Don’t limit yourself to just one driveway hardscape material. Combine products like those shown in this driveway for better wheel grip and for a more pleasing appearance in front of your home. And an additional purpose of combining pebbles and stones allows for creating the outline of parking spaces without having to use paint.
With lush vivid greet grass like this your flowerbeds will stand out too when your guests are entertained in your outdoor setting. Pair the bright green grass with contrasting vivid shades of flowers in purple and lilac and blue for an even more powerful picture. And be sure to add stones that complement both.
