Old World style lion head fountain, surrounded by hedges and cactus. I mean, cactus in a formal garden - who would have thought that would work so well!

Transition from gray concrete stairs to gray gravel path edged with gray stone/brick at border. Gravel with edging is both cheaper and more permeable than continuing concrete.

Love this walkway...the raised element in the path is so cool. It gives the perennials so much more presence and you wouldn't have to mow THIS path!

I like the stacked rock border. Astilbes in a woodland garden. There is no distinguishable pattern to the colours, but the random placement of plants work because the hues are complementary
