Front planting scheme

Last post I mentioned front border in the garden – planting on the sides of the new parent’s doorstep. I share the scheme in this separate post. 

My parents wanted bright planting with naturalistic hint with year-round interest. Also, they have some specific favorites such as hydrangea, red tulips, etc. Plus, we wanted to use plants that we already have (light green in the table) and needed to take into account available assortment. 

Conditions are: 

  • USDA hardiness zone 6
  • sun is shinning around 200 days per year
  • hot summers (the average daylight temperature in July and August is around +30°C)
  • period of drought in August
  • rich clay soil that stays wet during March
  • east-facing wall

Considering above wishes, restrictions and my aesthetic taste, I came up with the following design:

Perennial border planting schemes and list for front entrance for USDA zone 6

I didn’t have an intent to make a precise plan (concrete sizes on a scheme, information about structural interest in the plant list, etc.), because the purpose was to help my parents to visualize the planting and to create a shopping list. And it fulfilled its destiny 🙂

This was a theoretical part and I can’t wait to find out how things will turn out in practice.
