Plan Description

The designer uses graceful curving borders to bring this landscape to life. An appealing mix of shrubs grown for their ornamental foliage, flowers, and fruit rises from an underplanting of weed-smothering ground covers and long-blooming perennials. The shrubs' compact growth habits keep the windows clear and save on pruning chores. A small tree, selected for its handsome branching pattern and long season of colorful foliage, partially screens the entry from public view and creates a dramatic focal point. The curves in the borders are repeated in the cobble-edged planting peninsulas, which visually break up the large expanse of asphalt in the drive. Five deciduous shade trees planted along the drive spruce up this utilitarian area while giving needed height to the landscape. The trees are chosen for their airy canopies of delicate leaves, which create a softening screen without excessive shade or fall cleanup. A flagstone walk, set in concrete and mortared for weed-free maintenance, zigzags from the drive to the front porch. For a greater feeling of privacy, the designer ends the walk short of the street so that it is accessible only from the drive. The curving borders jut into the lawn, giving it an appealing shape--and a size that isn't too large for the easy-care gardener to handle comfortably. The lawn is kept free of plantings and other obstacles to make mowing faster and easier.
