Holly Fliniau didn't really have a plan when she started landscaping her corner property in Denver, but what evolved could be a textbook example of good garden design. She created a series of "rooms" that flow into one another and yet each have a distinct sense of place. Vine-covered fences and arbors shield various seating areas from the streets but don't come across as unfriendly walls. And generous plantings on both sides of the sidewalks give neighbors plenty to enjoy as they walk by on their way to the neighborhood park.
See how Holly carved out her own private oasis on an urban lot.
