Plan Description

The single intention of the backyard design shown here is to provide plenty of beautiful, fragrant flowers, spring through fall, for you to gaze upon, bury your nose in and tend with loving care. This is a gardener's garden--a garden for plant lovers. The island bed of fragrant flowers situated off-center in the lawn balances the visual weight of the shade tree. Here, where the plants will be easily accessible from all sides, grow old-fashioned perennial bloomers whose sweet perfume has pleased generations. A weeping evergreen shrub anchors this bed, giving it year-round structure so that it looks attractive even in winter. More fragrant perennials, planted in masses in the borders to intensify their scent, thrive in the light shade cast by the trees. Spring- and fall-blooming vines drape over the fence, softening its facade with colorful blooms. Even in early spring, fragrant-flowered bulbs push their way through the low groundcover, making perfect candidates for indoor arrangements. The hardscape, consisting primarily of a brick patio coupled with a flagstone path leading from the gate to the patio, offers simple, yet attractive, lines. The very straightforwardness of these construction features places more importance on the garden's lovely flowers and plants. The dominant tree of the garden, a large deciduous shade tree, draws the eye to the spacious corner bed. The other trees specified are medium-sized flowering trees and evergreens for year-round greenery, while charming shrubs provide additional seasonal color. If you are a flower lover, this backyard plan filled with fragrant flowers is for you. The tear-drop-shaped island bed, planted with a collection of scented perennials, is designed so you can enjoy the plants close up and tend them from all sides. The elegant brick patio, shaped to mirror the planting bed to its right, provides ample space for the family to dine and relax.
