Love the idea of creating nooks and crannies in garden rather than just a big square of grass

Sedum sarmentosum . "Whatever the name, this little sedum is fast-spreading, drought tolerant and easy to keep in check. It grows in the hot, full sun or in the shade. It doesn't seem to have any special soil requirements. In June, it's covered with tiny yellow flowers."

Dress Up Your Walkway Transform your front walk into a stylish statement by edging it in easy-care plants such as variegated hosta and boxwood. Conjure even more magic by putting a gentle curve in the path; it will offer your walkway with a soft, gentle look.

Get a Room. If you don't want to work on making your entire yard a private paradise, take one corner and transform it into a secluded getaway. A simple way to do this is to carefully place a couple of trees to form a pocket. Here, for example, two pines make a hammock feel tucked away. A redbud just behind the hammock enhances the effort.

A wooden walkway leading to a cement sitting area, beautiful gardening.

lovely house with curved walkway lined with hostas...Hostas need shade, so I can't do this. Anyone have ideas on a similar full sun plant for zone 7?

Inspired by a nearby church, this pool house has a tall vaulted roof, rustic wooden beams, a chandelier, and an ornate stone fireplace. (Photo: Laurey W. Glenn)
