Go for the Classic Look Brick is the perfect material for creating a timeless look that matches just about any style. Here's a hint: Look for old, worn bricks if you're going for a country or cottage look. Newer bricks are often better suited for contemporary or formal landscapes.
Good Grasses - Make pathways from a porous material, such as gravel, instead of non-permeable concrete so soil can absorb some water before it runs off. Ornamental grasses offer color and structure in this drought-resistant garden. Purple catmint and allium edge the gravel path in this flowerbed.
