The Magic of Woodland Gardens

With strategic pruning and the addition of just a bit of imposing ornamentation, a clump of trees can become a woodland Garden. You’ll first have to do some serious chainsaw-and-lopper editing. After you’ve felled a few trees and carved away unwanted limbs you’ll have created a glade.

Mount a single, vertical piece of statuary to punctuate the newly-made clearing. Plant low-maintenance ground covers -- creeping vinca is always useful, ferns are tidy -- and lay some stepping stones.  Presto! You’ve got an outdoor hideaway. Follow Simplicity and Restraint as your woodland-design principles, and you can’t go wrong.
