Creating Lush

Vertical lawn, below.


Don't have a stone villa?  Espalier a woody shrub.  No wires or trellis needed.

Oddly, the perfection above is undone without the  rattan chair.  Then it becomes an ad for patio furniture.

Those white cushions?  Not in my garden, crape myrtle tree debris would win in a day!
.
How lush can a garden be and have very little?  That is the best gardening question.  This garden, above, wins.

That's beautiful. Whenever your example-photos are grandiose, you always tell us how to apply the principle, not necessarily the particulars. I appreciate that.

Yeah, furniture company ads. Gag!

What color cushions would you use instead? Seems white becomes an unwanted focal point anyway, would green "disappear" and thus be better?

Was asked what color I would do the cushions.

About 3 tones darker than the door. I always try to choose something on the house, or art within the house complementary to exterior.
