Shape ideas for my formal herb garden. Maybe not herbs, but I really like the idea of this kind of structure in the back yard. Pea gravel separates the shaped beds, nice. Choose plants that will thrive in my unfortunate climate.
Absolutely fabulous Quilt Garden at North Carolina Arboretum, Asheville, NC This could be done on a much smaller scale in a backyard garden. Use herbs, flowers, even vegetables. Design your own quilt garden.
