Plan Description

To integrate the deck more fully with the landscape and to provide light shade, the designer places several low-maintenance trees in planting pockets in the deck. A graceful arbor positioned straight across from the deck stairs beckons strollers to meander along the semicircular path, where they'll encounter a bench inviting them to sit for a spell. The bench supplies respite and a different perspective from which to admire the garden. An assortment of plants rings the "figure-eight" lawn, which forms the hub of the landscape. Instead of more traditional groundcovers, drifts of blooming perennials and ornamental grasses blanket the ground. The various plants, chosen for a succession of bloom and carefully interspersed to camouflage the dying foliage of dormant spring bulbs, provide a kaleidoscope of color from season to season. Besides lawn mowing, the only maintenance you'll need to perform is to cut back and remove the dead foliage once a year in late winter. To reduce upkeep further, a low-care groundcover could be substituted for the turf, and a slightly curving, mulched path installed from the deck stairs to the arbor to accommodate foot traffic. The spacious deck offers a comfortable vantage point for enjoying the flowers and foliage. Mulched planting beds keep this garden free of most weeds, and if the optional lawn edging is installed, the only regular maintenance chore will be lawn mowing.
