Description: Strong shapes were key to the design, so Kirsty created circular lawns and a round island bed, where the stunning Cercis Canadensis takes centre stage - How to make a small garden look much bigger!
I like use of rocks gravel to slow water down as it moves through landscape on slight slope. Flat stone with depression in foreground a perfect spot for bees & butterflies to get water (without drowning in a deeper birdbath)
Diagonals add interest to a paving design. Tom Vetter used recycled brick to outline a crisscross pattern and combined it with stone and broken concrete. This walkway runs through a narrow garden along the side of his house in Portland, Oregon.
Mixed paving materials - I like how this looks, plus it makes repurposing easier! CT - note: Could get some pavers that match front walk and combine with other materials to tie both looks together. Definitely want the walk to be permeable.
