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!!
