Places– of charm

Gardening Tuscan-style is a new venture for me.  Certain trees and shrubs, such as the Italian cypress are signature trees.  Our house is here–>  and needs landscape work!  I’m inspired by photos I’m studying from the real thing below while reading what Tuscan landscape designers say– the look is not complete without the cypress. These grand evergreens also make wonderful privacy barriers while adding magnificence.  Palm trees are favorites as well.  Other ideas to incorporate are large terra cotta planters, often with the topiary, for a rustic Tuscan flair. Tuscan shrubs make wonderful hedges and look terrific along the walkways in your garden. Today I’m laying out a curvy design for a boxwood hedge around the front perimeter of our yard.  Every now and then, I will post my progress here.  Fun, fun!
