What to look for: This charming little garden is near the front entrance of a home in a planned community. Since the premise of this housing development is a down-sized, carefree lifestyle, the lot on which the home stands is small. Therefore, the avid gardener has planted every space to its fullest.

The focal point of this space is the trellised Clematis ‘Blue Explosion’. The color palette of blue, pink, yellow and white is designed to provide visual and sensory interest throughout the growing season.
