Extending your individual style from the interior to the exterior has become a top landscape priority. From traditional shrubbery

and structural lines to vintage accents from repurposed materials, anything goes in the garden to create the same comfort you find in your living room.



Containers with an aged look -- patinas, encrustations, crackled finishes are becoming the focal point in gardens.

Make room in your landscape this year for texture. Use plants with contrasting colors and foliage to highlight the

rustic exterior of your planter. Hydrangea, Ninebark, Weigela, and tried and-true favorites are now available in

dwarf sizes to captivate even the smallest of yard. Succulents are all the rage. Use them for tabletop containers,

vertical gardens, or drought-tolerant containers. Take it a step further by incorporating creeping succulents into your

landscape design. Let’s start planning.
