Landscape Around a Gazebo

Brought to you by Lowe's Creative Ideas

Keep a gazebo, pergola, or arbor from looking out of place. A pretty landscape will help integrate any structure into the garden.

Even a handsome garden structure, such as a gazebo, can look out of place without some landscaping around it. This formal garden plan solves that problem. Sheared boxwood frames a colorful bed of tulips, ferns, and hostas. When the tulips are spent, substitute begonia, torenia, or New Guinea impatiens in this part-shade bed. Or let the ferns and hostas take over. Either way, you’ll end up with a fitting stage for your treasured garden structure.
