Small Space Solutions: Along a Narrow Walkway

Small Space Solutions: Along a Narrow Walkway

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 that brings the forest feel of the surrounding space to the 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), a vine that clings to surfaces via aerial rootlets creating an easy vertical wall planting.

This little space is genius!
