HOW TO: Design a Woodland Garden

Utilize Your Shade with a Woodland Garden!
Are you stumped with what to add to those shady areas in your landscape? Do you have large trees creating large pockets of shade throughout your yard where nothing seems to grow? Create a Woodland Garden! Transform a bare, shady area into a peaceful woodland garden that you can enjoy for years!
A Woodland Garden is an area that often incorporates large trees with lots of under plantings of shade tolerant plants. It is designed to bring life to shady areas where little else are able to thrive, providing you with a beautiful, relaxing space!
A Woodland Garden doesn't need to be a huge amount of space either! With many shade-tolerant plants ranging in size and color, you can find plants that will thrive in the shade for any sized area!
