We’re in Wendy Lagozzino’s beautiful garden today.
I have an English-style cottage garden surrounding a house built in 1900. Back in the 1980s, I changed the landscape during a remodel to a two-tiered backyard and a roof garden over a garage in the front. The side yard has a plastic grid planted with ground covers to replace a mushy lawn. There is a shed in the backyard planted with a green roof. I am a collector and probably have way more perennials than I have any business fitting in! My basement ceiling is made up of everlastings I have grown over the years. Obviously, I have lived here for many years, and my garden is my passion.
The face of a piece of garden art is hidden among the leaves.
A bright primrose (Primula hybrid, Zones 4–8) is surrounded by the soft blue-and-white blooms of Omphalodes cappadocica ‘Starry Eyes’ (Zones 6–9).
This view of the garden shows the dense tapestry of perennials filling the space.
