ideoplast's Frontyard garden

Garden Type: Frontyard | Sun: Full Shade | Soil: Combination | Established: 2008 | Organic

2009: Ripped out last of sod and have pennywort planted on both sides of front door. Have thriving miniature pink azalea, bleeding hearts, ferns, dahlia, hydrangea, daisies, sedum and strawberries which we’ve let run wild as ground cover.

We have many different kinds of mint – have actually lost count; just added orange mint (delightful) two weeks ago. Both the mint and hyssop thrive underneath an absolutely sun-deprived spot under one of our fir trees. Hooray.

Also have lovely group of ligularia, violets, columbine and aconite in the shady corner by the front yard. Just added a couple of hardy carnations, a lavender and a handful of chinese lantern shoots imported from Miss Renee’s garden.

Unlike the side yard, the lillies planted in the front (day and Asiatic) are all very happy and not devoured by nasty little beetles.

Provided the groundcover takes, I dare say we’re finished with the front yard (though I would love to fill up the front part of the yard by the fence with daisies … eh, better things to do right now)

An outdoor organic garden located in Roslindale, United States, ideoplast's Frontyard garden currently contains 8 plants.

This is a Frontyard garden that is known to be in USDA Hardiness Zone 6. It has mainly Combination soil and receives Full Shade light.
