Gardens Plans for Special Spots

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.
