One of the drop dead gorgeous design ideas in the edge.
Now you just need that Zen pond outside
It’s weird that my favourite room in the house might end up being the hallway.
No koi pond for us. I’m thinking of a nice feature tree like a Japanese maple. Although it does face west so the maple may not like that.
Check out forest pansy. They have beautiful wide leaves purple and black which drop in autumn and flower in spring. Perfect shrubs and trees on the western side are deciduous species.
I've seen these in hot western aspects.
Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy'
This small attractive tree has spectacular heart shaped burgundy coloured leaves that continually change colour throughout the year. The branches have a distinctive, smooth dark brown wood which contrasts well with the blossom like pink flowers that are bourne before the re-emergence of burgundy leaves once again in spring.
