Accentuate Fall Color - One sure way to highlight the fall colors in your yard is to pair them with evergreens.

And bright yellows practically sing next to a dark green background. BHG

Creating a buried pot garden is a beautiful and easy way to ecoscape. Not only will your garden be extraordinarily charming and tidy, it'll consume less water and energy. Sunken planter gardens like this one provide both form and function. The pots prevent your herbs or plants from overrunning their designated areas, and the mulch keeps unwanted weeds and pests at bay while consuming no water and energy.
