Garden idea: The Herbaceous Border

If it’s good enough for the Queen of England….

So it’s basically a huge zone of flowers and bushes, often perennial flowering bushes. It seems its more typical of English landed gardens with a lot of space, but we have a large lot in back, and it might work well with the extended patio zones we’re considering. So here are some links on philosophy and practice of the herbaceous border:

I wonder how this would mix in with the Japanese aesthetic, which is otherwise what we’re going for back there. But it could be an interesting mix.

We’re stopping by tomorrow, so more pictures to come of the current state. Exciting!
