Think of your garden as something that can be framed and enhanced in its natural setting. A beautiful grove of trees sets the backbone for this potential shade garden. The suggestion of wondering paths between the trees makes this setting al the more alluring.
A bare bones landscape may be daunting, but with study and inspiration the garden will start to emerge.
A good way to start to design your garden is from the inside of your home — for your windows are the portals to the garden all year long.
