Shirley describes the plantings and landscape techniques used to achieve this look:
Tall berms and a dry stone river along the bottom helped to” break up” the deep void left after the lawn was taken out. We used a 70/30 soil blend that incorporates 70% topsoil and 30% organic amendments to keep the berm from “deflating” after watering. Medium sized boulders punctuate and accent the gardens. Yellow, “gold coin” groundcover will knit together and contrast with the burgundy Phormium.
Great planting choices along with a bright shutter color have transformed this facade completely. Find out more at Eden Makers Blog.
