Design and Plant; A Mixed Border

Design and Plant; A Mixed Border

by Noel Kingsbury
     
 
Rethink the typical garden design of extensive lawn and narrow border. Instead, explore islands of flowers, thick lines of plants, and mixtures of shrubs, roses, perennials, and annuals growing together in perfect harmony. This mingled arrangement maintains its beauty longer, extends the value of the planting area, and lies at the heart of today's ornamental garden.

Overview

Rethink the typical garden design of extensive lawn and narrow border. Instead, explore islands of flowers, thick lines of plants, and mixtures of shrubs, roses, perennials, and annuals growing together in perfect harmony. This mingled arrangement maintains its beauty longer, extends the value of the planting area, and lies at the heart of today's ornamental garden. If you aren't aware of the wide variety of mixed border types that exist, you're missing a valuable opportunity to make optimum use of natural resources. Dozens of photos show different approaches, from highly formal to almost wild.
