As of late I have been spending every bit of free time I have working on backyard projects with my husband. We finally received our shipment of plants (all evergreens – I realized I should embrace our crappy climate and plant things that look alive all year long) so the space is finally coming together. I am not big on flowers. I mean, I love a bouquet every now and then or picking some weeds out of the yard and sticking them in a vase but that’s about it. And that is why I love this townhouse garden project by Sawyer | Berson. It’s just deep greens and black. I love the simplicity yet how lush it is. Can’t really go wrong with classics like boxwoods and English ivy and staghorn ferns.
