Late spring is a great time to take a close look at your garden to decide where you need to make some changes. Truly memorable gardens get their character from lovely bones — benches, water features, garden accents, sculptures, containers and planters, stone work, arbors/pergolas, custom fences and gates, terraces, patios, garden lighting, and edging around your plant beds.
Many first time gardeners are often surprised and discouraged when they find their lovely and very expensive collection of plants are nothing more than too many random plants piled together in a forgetable outdoor space. Take the time out now to think about your garden’s bone structure.
When you add architectural elements to your garden spaces that can include a bench, stone accents, an arbor, landscape lighting, a patio of flagstone, and a curving stone path to lead to your large grouping of beautiful plants, your garden will come to life, and you’ll forever change your home life.
