Layer Plants For A Sense Of Depth

The guys decide to visit a much older part of the garden, an informal area. To reach the garden one must follow a path which leads to the greenhouse, the dugout, the folly and bungalow, all of which are functional parts of the garden and serve as out buildings. On the pathway Ryan has emulated nature by layering plants with combinations of foliage - mostly flowering shrubs and a collection of Japanese Maples that provide really nice fall color. Eric has always been impressed with the way Ryan has used multiple layers to create a sense of depth, as well as a sense of intimacy. Of course that's not possible to do within a few years. This is something that's been well thought-out, a very proactive part of the garden design and something done very well.
