Free Garden Plan

Our free Planting Guide for this garden includes a larger version of the illustration, a detailed layout diagram, a list of plants for the garden as shown, a list of alternatives for each plant, and complete instructions for installing the garden. (Free, one-time registration allows unlimited access to Planting Guides for all garden plans.)

It takes some pretty tough plants to put up with the harsh growing conditions surrounding a street-side mailbox. Hemmed in by pavement, this location calls for perennials that thrive in full sun and tolerate heat and drought. With the exception of the billowy ornamental grass, the plants included here stay under 2 feet in height, so as not to block your view as you back out of the driveway. With a garden like this, you'll enjoy your daily visit to the mailbox, even if your postal carrier has left nothing but bills.
