A variety of annual foliage plants coleus Solenostemon planted in garden bed next to house porch and lawn with foundation plantings, stone pillar, porch furniture, stone edging, hanging plants. Like the stone and te smaller plants.
Posts in grass. Pergola extends out over grass so I could put in planter. Pergola is higher than roof here -probably needs to align with mine due to height. I like painted concrete and covering half of patio. Pergola design is simple too
