A wood structure offers a restful spot at the center of a shade garden. Garden ornaments, such as a metal globe or sundial, are playful accents to the plants. An open air gazebo at the top of a gentle slope hosts a table and seats. Draw birds and butterflies with extras, such as a ground level birdbath. Placed at the entrance to the gazebo, a large urn supports an abundant growth of bright red begonias.
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.
