defining southern style

Think about the South’s gardens: the formal courtyards in Charleston, the fragrant rose gardens in Atlanta, the glorious bluebonnets in Texas Hill Country, the playful gardens in Arkansas. There’s also much to love about the tidy working plots of Colonial Williamsburg and the tropical getaways in Key West. The South is diverse yet sewn together by its uniting threads: food, music, architecture, and plantings. We want the Southern Living Essential Garden Guide to be the place for you to find all the tips you need to grow the flowers, shrubs, and trees that make the South special. We highlight the design elements to include in your landscape to give it charm and outline how to plant everything including containers, page 36, and edibles, page 74. Lawns are a big part of…

good bones make great gardens

1 Build Structures, First, Then Add Plants Elements such as arbors, pergolas, walls, paths, edgings, and seating spaces help determine where you can plant. They are the garden’s bones. Carole McWilliams framed her Atlanta garden with a white picket fence and arbors that complement her cottage-style plantings. 2 Go Formal This sophisticated style focuses on geometric shapes, symmetry, and neatly defined spaces. Allen and Brooke Oser worked with landscape designer Todd Dorlon to balance their layered borders, above, with manicured boxwoods and a diamond-pattern bluestone walk befitting their traditional Birmingham home. 3 … Or Go More Relaxed Informal and cottage-style looks rely on curves. Lay appealing paths and beds with pockets, bends, and swells. These strike the eye as looser and more carefree. Barbara Webb’s undulating grass paths, right, lead visitors on a journey through…

design checklist

WHAT ARE YOUR GROWING CONDITIONS? How much sun and shade fall on various parts of your yard? What’s your soil like? How wet or dry is your climate? What are the record low and high temps? The answers will help you pick the best plants and structures for your site. WHAT LOOK DO YOU WANT? Formal, country, English cottage, Colonial? WHAT’S YOUR REGION’S STYLE? What sort of plants and hardscaping materials look at home in your area? Lush, tropical plants? Drought-tolerant natives? Mountain wildflowers? Weathered wood? Brick? Bluestone? Do you want to include these regional elements in your design? WHERE DO YOU VIEW YOUR GARDEN? From the patio? From a particular window? From a path leading from the garage? Think about what you want to see from your view. WHAT ANIMALS WOULD YOU LIKE…

designing with plants

Use plants as structures. Trees or a hedge can screen out the neighbors in a softer way that’s just as effective as a wall or a fence. UNIFY AND REPEAT For a harmonious garden, follow a color palette such as warm reds, oranges, and yellows, or cool blues and purples. Once you have a palette, repeat the colors in different areas. STAGGER PLANTINGS Look at layers rather than arranging plants in straight lines—especially in looser cottage gardens. Even in formal looks, varying plantings’ heights adds interest to a border. TUCK IN A FEW BOLD SPECIMENS Include plants with presence that show off striking shapes. Boxwood, crepe myrtle, palm, and yucca are examples of statement plants. PUT POTS TO WORK Containers bring a pop of color, height, and interest wherever you need them. They’re great for bringing color to…

ANNUALS Angelonia Called the summer snapdragon, this warm-season annual stands about 1½ feet tall, loves the heat, tolerates drought, does well in containers, and resists deer. Choose from shades of pink, purple, blue, and white. GROWING TIP Plant angelonia in moist, well-draining soil. Cleome Known for its loose ball of petals, cleome comes in lavender, pink, and white. It can reach up to 6 feet tall. GROWING TIP Cleome is easy to start from seed. Plant in the back of borders for summer and fall color. Lantana Fuss-free lantana is a bloomer that lasts. It can grow up to 6 feet tall. Flowers come in just about every shade but blue and are butterfly magnets. Try lantana in hanging baskets, cascading over walls, or planted in large sweeps.
