    Driveway or Sidewalk Garden Designs

    Planting perennials along often-used walks or driveways is one of the best ways to view your garden daily. This strip of garden can be extended or short‑
    have as needed. Because this planting may be used along a driveway, the selected plants are primarily two feet or less in height, so they will not obstruct your view. The Grasses provide winter interest with their almost constantly moving seed heads, which may also be used for cutting. Early spring beauty can be added by including spring-flowering bulbs such as Crocus, Daffodils, or Tulips. The pink Asters and Scabiosa, along with the silver Artemisia, will ensure color late into the growing season. In very hot climates it may be necessary to substitute some more heat-tolerant plants of similar size and color for those with a southern limit of AHS Zone 7, especially along a driveway where concrete will increase heat. But whether you’re coming or going, these plants are sure to brighten your day.

    Helpful hints

    • This garden is great along a curving path, or driveway entry, or near a fence, wall, or deck with a narrow planting space.
    • Allow the Grasses to remain until late winter before cutting back.
    • Place organic compost mulch on the planting area before planting. Planting with a posthole digger makes for a simple task of mixing the soil, even without getting down on your knees!
    • Water soon after planting and then regularly for at least 10 days to establish your plantings.
