I go a little nuts with cottage style gardening and take loads of pictures of those I admire. In this mosaic of photos you’ll see all the elements I think are important in creating cottage style gardening. It’s not that easy. You have to understand the color wheel and know your plants. You have to know companion planting and soil preparation.
It’s good to add hard structures to the landscape also. Stone features, water, color, height, and width are all important for balance. I think the photos I’ve given you are a good representation of cottage style gardening.
Please enjoy! I have loads more to share. I took all of these photos except maybe one or two. I visit places around NC and document interesting gardens and places that I love.
