Exuberant Cottage Garden

When he began working on the landscape around his home nearly two years ago, the “bones” were already in place. Pink crape myrtles, boxwood, and monkey grass provided a formal structure beside the parking area, and tall privacy fencing defined an adjacent front garden anchored by a mature oak. Within these well-defined spaces, Jon planted a wild, loose, and wonderful cottage garden. “I love the random, wild look,” he says.
