Bill Teague's Top Plant Recommendation: Favorite Features in the Garden.

Bill Teague

  • Colors
    In creating a garden it is important to see color even little bits to create interest.
  • Different Elevations in the Garden
    Gives visual interest to an otherwise dull garden. When you create mounds or raised beds it gives better drainage to the garden.
  • Elements of Motion
    Water features, grass plumes moving with the wind or artistic features that add movement such as wind sculptures. Motion adds a peacefulness that is relaxing. Also helps to emulate nature.
  • Rocks
    They add structure to the garden and a strong connection to nature.
  • Shade
    Use trees or covered arbors. It creates a comforting place to go and rest in the garden.
