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.
Fill a landscape border with plants. Here sweet woodruff clusters around the edges of the stairs. Look to nature to provide easy care plant inspiration, such as these ferns, which love the dappled light and wet feet of the wooded landscape. Dainty plants often offer unexpected shade blooms, such as purple Japanese primroses.
