Gardens


I am working on designing a garden for my parents and I am ridiculously obsessed. Everytime I work on a new planting, I think about it for hours & hours ahead of time. Then sometimes I end up getting something entirely different once I reach the nursery. This is the rough draft I did in photoshop. Looks a little bright & wild, but I think that's just cause it has everything blooming at once. Then again, I am really into bright and wild right now. I considered doing a couple more for each season, showing what blooms when, but then thought perhaps that would be just a little overboard. I am sure it will change a lot, a couple times, before we finally plant it all.

Okay, First your parents need an updated door (to complement the updated new landscaping). Second, I'd take out the hanging planters. All the plantings look natural but the hanging planters look more formal and don't seem to go with the look. By the way, don't look at my yard for inspiration :)

Ha, that's the whole problem with this planting is that everything else in the yard is more formal. So you should have said "make the planting less naturalistic & more formal", rather than change the house or planters. I do naturalistic much easier, so I'm trying to make it more formal, but its hard for me. (good practice though)
