Garden plan

I have two small gardens that I would like to fill. Currently, they are filled with river rock. They are 2'-10" wide. One is 17' long and the other is 8' long. My entrance is in between both gardens. They border my sidewalk. I thought it would be nice to have an urn with boxwoods in between the two gardens next to my front door. I do get some sun during the day but there is an overhang which provides some shade in the afternoon. I live an a Tudor style condo in zip code 18976. I love flowers.

What a great project, making new front gardens! Part shade is the perfect for your boxwoods by the door, but be sure to twine the branches up in winter to reduce scorch and wind damage. As to the formal style of your home, start with some low-growing evergreens as backbone in your gardens, like some of the dwarf junipers, so you have winter interest. You can even add more box. Then you can plant flowering herbs and flowering perennials to your heart's delight. There are so many plants to choose from in Zone 6. Check the garden plans at to see which ones please you.
