Gardens Plans for Special Spots

We all have them: Hard-to-garden spots in the yard that lack color, texture, or visual interest. They're yearning for blooms and foliage, and our collection of plans will help. Start with the front yard: In place of the tired, lonely shrubs, there are ways to add multiseason color and structure. Start with either in small beds that surround a mailbox or larger flowerbeds that add blooms to the sidewalk strip. In the backyard, a deck or patio that's all by itself looks lonesome; use one of these garden plans to frame it with low-maintenance plants. As much as gardens can be used to add beauty, they can also be used to solve problems. Try a seaside plan that includes perennials resistant to the harsh conditions there, or one for a shared property line or slope. Neglected spots don't need to feel left out of landscaping either. There are ways to dress up in a side yard, along a path, in a nook, and even under a downspout. Add color and structure to hardscape elements that may need softening, such as a fence, or transition to the rest of a yard, such as next to a pond.
