A Feng Shui Garden Design 2

This post continues from yesterday's post.

The side of the house had no pathway from the driveway to the front door. The foundation planting was too narrow and dry.

I created a wider garden with the owner's favorite perennials, as well as the appropriate Feng Shui plants for the owner's birth dates.

All paths curve gently.

This is the "before" photo of the area between the garage and the back door. Drainage was poor, and the old decking was rotten. The owner was also concerned about security and was reluctant to leave good quality furniture outside.

The "after" photos show the secure courtyard I created with dining area and herb garden. The wrought iron fence will be completely covered by the climbing honeysuckle within 2-3 years, creating a private area and attracting hummingbirds to the honeysuckle flowers.

The herb garden for the cook.

Tomorrow I'll post photos of the secret garden I created!
