Landscaping ideas

We moved from 3 acres to an @ .33 acre "village" lot. Stage 1 of landscaping included adding a deck, short stacked stone planting beds around the front of the home, & an herringbone brick entry walk with stairs. Stage 2 plans include turning the fenced area off of the deck into a secret garden. I envision lush perennial garden, complemented by shrubs and small trees, with patio, walkways, waterfall & pond, and seat-height stacked stone walls surrounding multiple planting beds.

1. Choose Feature, Filler and Anchor Plants You need feature plants that will create interest to your garden. Roses are the ideal feature plant. Hydrangeas could be considered filler plants including others such as hollyhocks, lavender and viburnum. Your anchor plants are those that create a backdrop to your canvass and are placed at the back of the beds due to their height. These are usually evergreens and could be conifers, boxwood and other small trees.
