Plants to plant together to help growth and avoid insects
Companion planting. "Plants have best friends just like people do. Marigolds help tomatoes and roses grow better. Nasturtiums keep bugs away from squash and broccoli. Petunias protect beans from beetles and oregano chases them away from cucumbers. Geraniums keep Japanese beetles away from roses and corn. Chives make carrots sweeter, and basil makes tomatoes even tastier."
Stone walkway ideas-- love the mixture of rock types and surrounding foliage; although I would like more color surrounding.
Snowdrift Rose-- Love this rose!!! Bushes are covered with white, full blossoms.
Rose Verbena-- great groundcover for hot and dry areas; spring to late summer
Low-maintenance plants: Portulaca. A great annual flower for hot, dry beds near a driveway or other sun-baked site, portulaca is as fuss-free as they come. It is bright and cheerful, creeping happily along hot spots and flowering all summer. It rarely needs to be watered, and it often reseeds in the garden.
