Surround Your Sidewalk with Color Garden Plan


  • Product Description

      Take back some precious real estate in your yard and make a garden out of the space around your sidewalk. Notoriously, this area is a challenging spot to garden in — added heat from the concrete, full sun conditions and a location far away from a hose spigot give this space between the sidewalk and curb the nickname “hellstrip.” Isn’t there a part of you itching to make this foreboding place into a fertile land of flowers, texture, aroma and color? Imagine the sense of gratification when you’re welcomed through this passage after a walk around the block.   

      Featured plants include sedum, coreopsis, Russian sage, prickly pear cactus and more easy-care and drought-tolerant perennials.


      This Surround Your Sidewalk with Colorful Garden Plan performs best in full sun and cold zones 5 to 9.
