Surround a Deck with Color Garden Plan
Does your deck suffer from naked ankles? If so, chances are it could use a little botanical assistance. For this deck landscape design, we varied the heights of the plants so that they make a smooth transition from the unsightly base of the deck to railings above. This concept will work well with a near-grade deck or one that sits a few steps above the surface of the ground.
Featured plants include panicle hydrangea, salvia, clematis, Japanese maple and more perennials and shrubs.
This Surround a Deck with Color Garden Plan performs best in full sun to part shade and cold zones 5 to 9.
