Keep it green

As we approach summer, naturally more focus goes to our outdoor spaces...and for good reason! What is better than dining alfresco or simply enjoying a lazy day in the sun with a stack of great magazines? I can almost taste the watermelon...and hear the ice rattling around in a tall glass of lemonade. So why not surround yourself with beautiful plantings, Modern Cottage style? Our rule of thumb: Keep it green. The Modern Cottage garden uses color sparingly, and instead relies on an abundance of lush green plants and shrubs, with accents of the most beautiful chartreuse-colored varieties to add that crisp, modern edge. We also go for almost any white bloomers, so long as they are not too fussy (French tulips planted in small groupings are a favorite). Happy planting!
