  • Low-Care Garden

    For an easy, low-care garden, concentrate on foliage color and texture for interest. The bold leaves of hostas are tucked in among evergreens in various shades of green and gold. The white variegated dogwoods in the rear give the planting a light airy feeling. The fern gives textural interest.
