    Box It In....use a slope to create garden art! Here, boxwood hedges create a visual masterpiece on a slope. The blue fescue between the hedges adds a fun contrast in form and color. Planting on the slope enables you to view the distinct planting pattern while enjoying a meal on the patio. Beautiful place to enjoy ice tea!!

Beautiful use of hedge, boxwood and climbing ivy..nicely done.

Kjeld Slot - LOve the use of traditional boxwood hedging in a contemporary repeating pattern down a slope filled with purple and white tulips... gets me thinking about spring.

Boxwoods, bricks, and hydrangeas ~ perfect! This could be a front porch or a back porch... but the curb appeal is strong for either case. Fabulous welcoming stone pathway with gorgeous evergreen hedges and beautiful ever blooming hydrangeas behind the hedges (called 'layering') and of course steps up to a gorgeous deck or porch. Love this look.
