Today I spent time with my friend Kerry discussing how she could improve her front garden. Because there are several large trees on the property, the patch of grass which appears in the middle of the garden, doesn’t get much light and is rather patchy.
Since Kerry lives on a fairly busy street, she does not want to spend a lot of time tending to the front garden. I thought that I would post some pictures here to see if my gardening friends have some ideas for improving the look of the yard and perhaps replacing the lawn.
We live in a Zone 3 so our choice of plants is somewhat limited. I thought that perhaps Kerry could have a path starting at the front steps and winding down the middle of the garden. Flowers could be planted alongside the path.
The long expanses of pea gravel seem to need something.
If you have any suggestions, they would be much appreciated.
