Plant a Knot Garden Herbs and tidy hedges such as boxwood are most commonly found in geometric knot gardens. Try adding extra interest with grasses. Here, a golden sedge is a stunning contrast to dark green boxwood. Test Garden Tip: Tight, mounding grasses work best in knot gardens. Avoid grasses that are too loose and open; they can make the knot garden feel messy because of their loose habit.

Love this treatment for the hardscape. | More lusciousness at

Garden the way could I ever find a home with that kind of arched wall...but still, I love it!

grassy paving - put mother-of-thyme or other low-growers that don't need mowing, and use it for parking lots instead of asphalt. Most wil survive. What doesn't - put asphalt there only. And you will end up with a less heated, more water-absorbent surface, much healthier and greener.

Love the checkerboard paving - if you were careful about the 'grass' you planted, you wouldn't need to mow (e.g. microlaena, chamomile, thyme, creeping mint, even violas...) I've always loved this idea, but having to continually maintain it put me off. Love the idea of a ground cover that wouldn't need to be mown

Our Travira Collection would compliment the mix of contemporary design with nature perfectly.
