Because hardscape and evergreens take up most of the space, the inclusion of colorful plants was critical. At the foot of the boxwoods, Clyde designed a small flowerbed that peeks at you through the gate. In addition, pots of flowers, which are changed seasonally, concentrate color at strategic points―out by the front gate and up on the sitting area.
As this example demonstrates, some of the nicest gardens don’t reveal themselves all at once. They tempt you with a glance and capture you as you explore.
