Last week, we turned this:
The client didn't want vines and other trailing plants to encroach her deck space. We shot for a more tailored look using gorgeous skyrocket junipers as anchor points to take the eye upward. The little bowling ball shaped evergreens add whimsy and another evergreen anchor point for the design. The many colors and textures are provided by - dahlias, coleus, salvia, blue fescue and sedge. This design will grow up and will mound, but will not invade personal space. A nice place to enjoy a glass of vino, no?
