This Ideabook shows that a shady garden doesn’t have to be boring! For the plant palette, in addition to flowering plants, I incorporated a wide range of leaf colors to grab your attention, including variegated and chartreuse foliage which create the illusion of dappled sunlight in the shade garden.


This Conceptual Design helped my clients visualize how the space could be made more visually interesting by incorporating two raised rock-wall planting areas and a wandering flagstone pathway. These hardscape elements would then be complimented and softened by a diverse array of plants.
