Use these tips from the experts to upgrade your pint-sized lot to an outdoor retreat.
Fab Front Yard
It's all about the details for this home. Roses exude charm, while the planter under the windows seals the deal between the garden and the architecture. Containers anchor each corner of the grass terrace, becoming floral exclamation points on the simple design.
Gorgeous Plant Palette:
• Roses: 'Dortmund' (cherry red) and 'Ballerina' (light pink) work together beautifully on the fence. Over the front door, 'Climbing Old Bush' flowers with equal enthusiasm.
• Perennials: Along the front walk, 'Bath's Pink' Cheddar pinks, lamb's ears, and silvery 'Powis Castle' artemisia offer year-round texture and seasonal color.
• Annuals: Violas, snapdragons, and pansies keep the palette simple and colorful.
