    Entry Shade Garden Designs for the home garden, Landscaping designs

    Have you grown weary of the all-too-common Juniper-and-Yew combination that flanks your front door? Wouldn’t it be nice to create a setting
    that says “Welcome” in a charming, personal way? That task is challenging if you have a front yard that gets only a few hours of sun during the day. Inspired by the natural beauty of a woodland garden, this design offers a tapestry of variegated foliage, contrasting textures, and cheerful shade-loving flowers. The blooms begin in midspring and continue through early fall, with an ever-changing display throughout the season. Consider planting several attractive, shade-tolerant evergreen shrubs near your front door as the backdrop for your garden: a large-leaf white or pink Rhododendron, a compact spreading Yew, and a couple of Inkberry Holly shrubs (Ilex glabra). An unusual variegated shrub, the elegant Sambucas Marginata; Serves as a small tree in this plan. Before planting, work lots of organic material into your soil; Woodland plants thrive in a fertile, moderately moist environment. Once established, this entry garden will greet your visitors with style.

    Helpful Hints

    • Eliminating or substituting for the chelone oblique will make this garden a Zone 4 collection.
    • Add shade-tolerant trees and shrubs to your entrance garden
      to create an attractive backdrop for this shady perennial border.
    • If you desire a shady entrance garden, plant sun-loving trees
      and shrubs that will create a canopy of shade for your entrance.
    • Shade perennials often require a much more moist and fertile soil than do sunny borders. Digging in plenty of organic compost and layering with mulch will help retain moisture and fertility.
