All Star Landscaping

In this Connecticut garden, a low privet hedge forms a traditional rondel; inside it, a fountain with stone from a mini quarry on the property surrounded by Vinca minor ground cover. This Lake Toxaway, North Carolina, retreat is partially shrouded by a living roof planted with native grasses and wildflowers. In addition to improving heating and cooling efficiency, absorbing rainwater, and providing habitats for pollinators like bees, the living roofs enhance privacy by blending the home into its surroundings.
