Lori and John Burdock have a beautiful yard full of everything a gardener could want; trees, shrubs, annuals, perennials, a vegetable plot and even a completely restored antique truck!
I am sure the owner of this gorgeous truck would strongly object to it being seen as a garden ornament, but I couldn’t resist taking a picture : )
This faux fence serves as a backdrop for the perennials in front. I love this idea!
Now that’s a rock! Perfectly positioned by this mature shrub it makes a wonderful exclamation point in the garden.
There’s Darcy photo bombing a beautiful border. Look at those yellow lilies!
Alliums look gorgeous when they bloom but I like them best after the seed heads form like this. I have heard of people spray painting the seed heads while they’re still in the garden…pastels, bright red, copper, black, etc. I am kind of a fan of the natural so I’m not sure if I would like that or not, but it is certainly a different idea that might be fun to try. Apologies for the seed head being out of focus…
Another beautiful border…
The mark of a true gardener is knowing how to use plants. Goutweed is horribly invasive but it is also terribly beautiful. Here it provides a living mulch for a thriving spruce tree while the borders are kept in check. The tree looks as if it is floating in a foamy green sea. If you are careful to position goutweed where you can mow around the edges you can keep it from spreading…sort of!
A thriving vegetable garden and a pile of lawn clippings waiting to be used as mulch. And a chair for relaxing in when you’re done!
Here a small trellis helps keep squash off the ground.
Look at all the zucchini!
Tomatoes absolutely loaded with blossoms thrive under this frost cloth…excellent use of season extenders! Love the permanent pathways and the pots of geraniums too.
Hot stuff! Beautiful stove and one of the most unique fire pits I have ever seen…
