I have a small area in the corner of the yard (8 X 8, or 10' if I want)
I have picked up my plants but haven't put them in yet. My only "height-plants" are grasses, Karl Foerster and a couple variegated reed grass, blue oat grass for infront of them. Then I have a couple bee balm , 3 coral bells, 2 blanket flower, 2 dwarf winged Euonymous and then for the front... 5 silver mound.
Last night I picked up some salvia and verbena to fill in some spots. Phew...that was a mouthful [Big Grin] Any thoughts on how to add more height in the back? Thanks!

What about an unplant item. An old chair, an unused gate, a statue, an oblisk, a pole for a flag or bird house. Just a few ideas.
You can find a lot of things just sitting around. Or in the basement or attic. Just let your imagination go wild. I once saw a baby crib head board in a garden with a plant climbing around it. I'm going to try that. The crib myself and siblings slept in is now not safe.(slats are too far apart, funny 6+ kids slept in it but is now not safe)
