Small Space Solutions: Along a Narrow Walkway

Small Space Solutions: Along a Narrow Walkway

Small Space Solutions: Along a Narrow Walkway
Side of house featuring a window box as well as a pathway lined with a mix of boxwoods, ferns and perennials.

What a great lesson in how to combine shades of green to bring a narrow space to life! This fuss-free mixture of boxwoods, ferns and perennials is low maintenance, but super elegant, too.

Our three favorite ideas:

  1. The brown hue of the window boxes brings the forest feel of the surrounding space to the house and garden.
  2. The scale of the two large boxwood shrubs that frame the windows and make the center garden more important.
  3. The trick of cladding the foundation under the window boxes with creeping fig (Ficus pumila). This is a vine that clings to surfaces via aerial rootlets creating an easy vertical wall planting.

This little space is genius!
