Here is a garden that I recently designed. When I first saw it, my feeling was one of chaos and unwelcomeness. As it turned out, that also matched what the owner was feeling. She said that she would hurry by this entrance because it made her feel uncomfortable. I wanted to create a feeling of harmony and welcome with color and texture. We are now adding more plants to complete the ground cover to both suppress the weeds and to provide more native pollinator habitat.
