Woodland & Water Gardens


        Shady spaces, often considered difficult places to garden, can become opportunities for a multitude of plants that disdain hot, sunny sites. Many flowering shrubs such as Azalea and Rhododendron, ferns, hosta and countless other herbaceous perennials are adapted to woodland conditions that receive more dappled sunlight. These areas can be transformed into special places that offer a cool and colorfully subtle contrast to the sun drenched parts of your garden.

The addition of water to a design will enhance your garden's wildlife appeal as well as add new experiences for the human visitor. A quiet garden pool or a rushing stream can be created to harmonize with and complement a shady wooded  site.
