2. Use Low Borders to Direct Traffic

In the main garden, boxwood marks a firm line between the lawn and the flower beds, eliminating the need for decorative brick or metal edging. Repeating a variety of shapes keeps the plantings dynamic. Boxwood balls and rectangles punctuate the edging at consistent intervals. Treelike cones of clipped wax-leaved privet flank the entrance like columns. Consider placing sheared shrubs on either side of an arbor—or your front door—for a formal accent.
