What is a beautiful garden?
A garden is like a human being. It needs bones for structure. Flesh for a body. It needs makeup to bring out the best.
The bones of a garden are the trees, shrubs, and hardscape items like brick walkways, retaining walls, ponds, and Gazebo?s.
The Flesh of a garden is the perennials. The add body, texture, and an ever changing landscape to a garden.
Annuals are the makeup. They add the color, the window dressing, the little extra that adds a surprise here and there. They complement and enhance the bones and flesh of a garden
We need them all to be exceptional.
