Create Your Dream Garden Today!
In this garden, we were finishing out the space after a recent design-build on a backyard home office. We wanted to create a peaceful woodland feeling to mirror the surrounding shady woods. Shade gardens are some of the most inspiring spaces to garden, and we reject the idea that shade gardening is limiting or less fun.
Everything is deer-resistant and low maintenance, with splashes of evergreen species for year-round texture and color. This install also feature many native species, including southern woodfern, bleeding heart and eastern wood fern. We also incorporated some favorite hearty shade garden species, such as leopard plant, hellebores and paperbush.
Unseen here is the hugelkultur base we created inside the large raised bed to reduce necessary watering as well as to use less brought-in materials.
