Simply Stunning Recipes for Summer Planting

Something To Get You Started

Whether starting from scratch, or revitalizing an existing landscape, it can be a bit overwhelming to know where to begin. Need a little nudge? We've created a collection of combinations that do very well during our sizzling summers and create a space that feels cool and lush.

With similar sun requirements and water needs in mind, you can build on these recipes with additional plants to create a landscape, large or small, that suits your style.
