Seriously, I have driven by this house at least a hundred times. I never once noticed the garden until last week, when it made such an impression I had to circle back to get a closer look.
It was the oddly (in a good way) pruned conifers, with their little trunks, that first caught my eye.
For a moment I thought maybe they were Chamaecyparis lawsoniana 'Wissel's Saguaro' but after looking at online photos I've decided they aren't "saguaro-y" enough to be.
The extra-wide hellstrip was nicely planted up.
And the blooming Heathers/Heaths (help!?) add color and texture.
A nice way to frame a neighbor's tree.
Times two on the other side.
A thin side yard gets tall Bamboo for privacy.
And a third similarly pruned-up conifer, in the front garden, for balance.
So much color, without the screaming of spring bulbs.
On top of the side wall...
At the driveway/garage end...
