A Gardening Life – April 26

Sometimes we plant in our gardens treating the existing objects, plants and features as if they have to be there. Just because there was a raised bed in that area doesn’t mean it has to stay and that you have to continue to fill it with plants. Just because there was a shrub border or island planting there doesn’t mean that you need to keep that bed or border in the same place. When designing in the yard and garden it’s helpful to carry along a mental eraser and a willingness to think that anything can be changed.

All of these plants would have been much more attractive if arranged in a larger space without the raised bed. The only reason that they were planted here is because the raised bed already existed in that spot.
