Plan Description

The roughly C-shaped design of this shady bed creates an eye-pleasing curve. The garden's undulating interior edge forms all kinds of interesting nooks and crannies, which invite visitors to explore. Site this bed under the spread of high-canopied trees, which offer filtered shade--the kind that allows many types of shade-loving plants to flourish. Shade-loving shrubs dominate the bed, with drifts of spring-flowering bulbs, colonies of ferns and groups of perennials interspersed throughout to add more color. Bulbs dot the mulched areas between the shrubs in spring. Once the bulbs finish their display and go dormant, the mulch serves as pathways into the rest of the bed. Many of the shrubs have lovely flowers during spring and summer, followed by showy berries that appear in fall and persist through winter. The designer adds a birdbath to accommodate the birds attracted by the berry-producing shrubs. Structural elements include a garden sculpture and a stepping-stone path that leads to a rustic bench, where visitors can sit and enjoy the naturalistic setting. A shady front- or backyard can be transformed into a lovely garden setting by planting this undulating border beneath the existing trees. Modify the plan to suit the locations of your existing trees and dig planting holes for shrubs only where you will not sever tree roots that are thicker than one inch in diameter.
