Southern Living Idea House Gardens

Southern Living Plant Collection partnered with David N. Brush Landscape Architecture Inc. to create a stunning landscape for this year's Southern Living Idea House

First Impression Garden

Even in remote areas of the landscape, gardeners can create a powerful first impression with minimal effort by massing shrubsgrasses and perennials with vibrant color or texture, as seen here with Crazy Pink™ Echinacea.

Entrance Garden

Invite visitor's into your home with a lovely display of color. Consider species that bloom over a long season, such as ‘Sunset Flash’ Gaillardia. Appeal to the senses by incorporating fragrance in the design with Chef’s Choice® Rosemary.

Courtyard Garden

Courtyard Garden

In the courtyard garden plant materials step down from the tree canopy to an understory of shrubs including Platinum Beauty™ LomandraBeyond Blue™ Festuca
‘Meerlo’ Lavender and Chef’s Choice® Rosemary​.

Secret Garden

Color and fragrance can create an indoor - outdoor connection. A brightly blooming shrub viewed through a bedroom window offers a cheerful morning greeting. Sunshine Ligustrum and 'Sunset Flash’ Gaillardia add a burst of color and offers year-round golden foliage.

Secret Garden

Plantings can work to frame and support focal points. In this design 'Soft Caress' Mahonia's lovely texture provides contrast to the stone wall in the secret garden.
