Cedar Valley Arboretum & Botanic Gardens

Design Inspiration

leave a comment »

With all this talk of garden design, I’m getting antsy to plant!  Unfortunately here in Iowa we have to cool our heels until mid May … plenty of time to find inspiration in garden magazines and online. 

My new favorite website is www.deborahsilver.com.  Deborah Silver & Co. is a garden design firm from Michigan and their website is filled with hundreds of beautiful photos.  Click on “Portfolio” to see a variety of containers and landscapes filled with vibrant color and texture using familiar Midwest plant material.  You will look at ordinary annuals like verbena, geranium and petunia in a whole new light!

See you in the gardens.
