Define A Dining Area
Plant beds to separate sections of a garden.
This secluded plot of land in Quebec's Eastern Townships used to be a stretch of black asphalt that wound its way up a hill and around to the back of a house. The owners planned the gardens as a serene view from the home and an area to relax and entertain. Beds of boxwood balls and pachysandra define this dining area, while a 75-year-old white pine provides shade from the sun. If you're lucky enough to have a large tree like this, consider positioning a dining area below it for comfortable shade from the summer sun. Neat beds outline and envelop different areas of the garden.
