Designing In The Shade

What could have been a dark colorless shade garden has been transformed by the design group of Janet Rosenberg & Studio. It all began by cutting back the existing shrub border to make way for white flowering shrubs and variegated plantings, a big key to making this design feel brighter and more airy. Small pops of color planted where they will get a fair amount of sun round out the design.
With the shrubs cut back and boxwood planted following the shapes of the hardscape, a stronger classic design was created. Some thing to be considered if a renovation to a more classic design is on the horizon.
