Hello again! Ok, so Kathy is home from her trip to Portland, but I need to borrow her sweet readers just one more time regarding the Davis Cottage! Fall is around the corner and we are about to vamp up our landscaping. Disclaimer: I am not the girl who has a ‘green thumb’, quite the opposite actually! Hard to believe as I work for a gardener extraordinaire?! Luckily, she loves me anyways, ha! With that being said, here are my ideas and inspiration… see what you think!
Another disclaimer: I need things that I can’t kill easily!
For those of you who missed my previous post, here is our little cottage…
As you can see, we have a few very small shrubs in the front beds. Thats it. Can you tell I need help?!
I love English Cottage landscaping (sound familiar?)! So let’s look at a few of my inspirations.
Hydrangeas, boxwoods, arborvitae, hosta, and ivy oh my!
I love the more manicured, simple design. Not as overflowing as traditional English cottage designs.
Here is what I’m thinking… please make suggestions I need them!!
The main things I want to accomplish this Fall are the flanking Degroot Spire Arborvitae, Dwarf English Boxwoods and some sort of filler in between the boxwoods? Maybe the Hosta and Hydrangea?
Is this a good place to start?!
I can’t wait to hear all of your fabulous ideas!! Y’all were so sweet to help with my paint decision and now my landscape ideas
Thank you Kathy, for letting me ‘steal’ your readers again this week!!
