Under the cover of overhead trees, woodland shrubs such as spirea and shade tolerant variegated hostas welcome dappled sun. This garden shed features a roof made from a collection of wood framed windows pieced together like a puzzle. The lower walls are clad in clapboard siding. The result is a bright and beautiful place to work on the inside, and a beautiful garden structure from the outside.
The geometric layout of the paths pavers stands in contrast to the soft lines of the flowerbeds. Relying on shades of yellow green and white, the foliage of the plants, such as lady ferns, sweet woodruff, Brunnera, and Lenten rose, provide primary visual interest. A slim water feature and rhythmic plantings provide a peaceful, shaded setting.
