Annuals such as sweet alyssum make a wonderful white edging with its dense, tiny, fragrant white flowers. If cut back they will bloom all season. The perennial green and white variegated lilyturf (Liriope muscari) is another of my favorites for edging beds.
Contemporary landscapes are designed to act as an extension of the home, and with busy modern schedules, the ambience at night is as important as during the day. Cool-toned lighting gives off an eerie, off-putting glow, and should be avoided.
The combination (above) of the blue spikes of Veronica spicata mingled with yellow Achillea ‘Coronation Gold’ is an example of the way a yellow “throw” creates a sparkle that blue by itself could not. Try pink, cream and silver for the same effect.
Sometimes a simple design tweak can elevate the ordinary into an eye-catching feature of the landscape. Though a fence is often thought of as a backdrop that is meant to recede visually from furnishings and plantings, a horizontal wooden fence like this one makes everything around it look good, and doesn’t cost any more than a traditional vertical fence. Next to a “statement” fence like this, a simple concrete or gravel patio exudes simplicity and class, allowing you to get a majorly stylish look without expensive materials.
