This photo provides some inspiration for the pergola walkway flowers. We wouldn't use these huge pots or hurricanes, however. As an aside, we do have some white paper lanterns available for rent, if you like this look.
I would love to walk under this gorgeous canopy and allow the dense foliage provide cool shade during the warmer months, then as the weather cools and the leaves fall, the winter sun is allowed to penetrate. The flowers are highly scented.
This gravel and basalt stone path is flanked by boxwood, Japanese irises, hellebores and red masterwort. Black metal arches add height and gravitas to the path, which leads to the secluded patio beyond the hedges
