Well maintained city garden is a magnificent retreat from long working hours.
Main theme - acidic soil loving plants. Tall spruces grow here long enough to make the soil acidic, thus perfect for rhodies, azaleas, hydrangeas.
I was showing this garden already 5 years ago, so jump here to see the difference and how it has improved.
This dry and hot part of the garden is planted charmingly with miscanthus and late tulips. Doesn't it make great spring combo? It complements perfectly rusty modern garage, which is on the right side.
Cramming different kind of plants here wouldn't make the same effect. There was wisteria growing here before - I admit it was good decision to replace it with this charming composition.
I wonder how it looks in the summer while miscanthus gets bigger.
