English-Inspired Garden

Create a path to an open sanctuary.

Borrow a few ideas from this gorgeous backyard in Montreal. Gardening guru Marjorie Harris loves the idea of a path that leads to an open tapis vert, or green carpet. Line the path with boxwood hedges and a mix of annuals and perennials, and surround the "carpet" with taller bushes or trees for privacy. Invest in a rustic wooden dining set and let the summer entertaining begin!
