A Shady Retreat

One of life’s most simple pleasures is sitting in a shady spot reading or just looking out into your garden.
Many gardeners view shade as a challenging situation for growing plants. While some plants do not grow well in low light, numerous others thrive under these conditions. The best way to cope with low light levels is to choose plants that do well in less light.
Add interest underfoot. A path with ribbons of greenery between its pavers is especially inviting. Vegetation between stones also softens a space.

Do you have a shady area in mind you would like to have a peaceful and inviting setting? Give us a call!
