Rustic and Casual

Casual cottage gardens play host to everything from afternoon naps on a hammock to lantern-lit dinners. Inviting front gardens with loosely designed flower beds and rambling paths can channel a rustic charm that extends to the backyard entertaining area. Whether you're looking for showstopping color or something a little more muted to blend in as a backdrop, its important to choose the right plants. To bridge the barrier between outdoors and in, we've chosen plants worth your while.
