Cottage by the Lake-

This lakeside home in New Jersey

features front entrance plantings,

a side garden with stone retaining

walls, and a stepping stone path.

 

The entrance drive plantings consist of climbing roses that wrap around the entrance piers creating a picture frame of the home.  Plantings along the front walkway provide a range of color and texture that compliments the style of this charming house.

 

A dry stack stone wall and stone steps are installed to create an enjoyable garden walk along the steep side yard.  Plantings of complimentary colors such as long flowering purple catmint and yellow leaved spirea give long seasons of interest.
