A Lush, Low-Care Planting

"An all-time favorite perennial. The sweet scent of Lily-of-the-Valley will fill the garden in early spring. Each stem produces as many as 25 blooms. Easy to grow in shady areas, but will also thrive in partial sun."

Would love my front yard to look like this someday. If I could keep my neighbors from stealing my plantings!!!

Corner Grass Garden: full sun to partial shade. 1 zebra grass, 2 fountain grasses, 3 daylilies, & 6 blue fescue grasses.

Front Yard Sidewalk-Garden Ideas: Grow a Cutting Garden. Even though they take up little real estate, small-space sidewalk gardens can be great for growing your own cut flowers. Here, foxgloves, roses, and a host of other flowers are perfect for dressing up the front of the house and dropping in a vase for a great hostess gift or table decoration.

So pretty....

Landscape idea - great to cover up unwanted items or to dress up a corner
