Scott County Master Gardener's

It has finally stopped raining here and dried out! Of course it will be so dry soon we will be dragging out the water hoses! I am sharing photos from Biedenharn Gardens in Louisiana. I recently visited here-while it was too wet to do anything else. I hope you can get some inspiration
for things to do in your garden-just maybe not on such a grand scale.
I love this combination of the lime green and coral color!

You could put your favorite piece of yard art in a bed of impatients, too.O.K., so this is a little grand for most gardens, but do-able(is this a word?-lol) on a smaller scale.All this is, is grouping pots with the same color flowers together in front of a green background-anyone can do this. It sure makes a bigger impact, than pots scattered everywhere. How is this for a low maintenance garden? Pea gravel is used here, but you could probably use crushed granite-a cheaper option. All the maintenance needed here would be spraying the occasional weed that popped up. Notice how the pots are grouped together-more impact! I hope this gives you ideas. When you have down time in your own garden, go visit public gardens, there are tons of free ideas out there!

Ideas on gardens, garden design

Hi Gardening fo,
I've been trying to learn a bit more about decorative gardening. I admit I don't know very much, but of the garden designs or aesthetics I like, I realize that I like both English style gardens and Japanese style gardens. Is there a style that's a combination of the two?
I'd like to gradually fill out the front and back yards of my house, but here's the rub, I'd like to use mostly drought resistant, low water and mostly native shrubs and flowers.
Is it possible to get a full, lush green of an english garden and the shady look of a japanese garden with such plants?
Thanks for your advice.
