Amsterdam – Bosplaat
Client wanted color. The garden is planted in mixed palette with small groups and a successive color patterns. starting in spring in mostly yellows, then turning into whites and pinks in June on to blues, purple and reds in mid summer and to more purple and yellow in the fall.
Due to the existing mature birch trees the front yard has quite a dry soil with a lot of shade. (Last two pics). So here the selection of plant is done in larger groups of tough plants that can handle a dry shady location. Keyplants are a matrix of the grass Anemathele lessoniana interplanted with Lunaria redivia, Geranium phaeum and a Rudbeckia fulgida.
