I spent last Friday night touring some amazing gardens in a gorgeous area about 20 minutes from my home. My husband said it was like Halloween for adults. The weather was perfect and we walked up and down the streets seeing gorgeous gardens as our treat. The tricks were the tips that I got from other people’s creative outdoor spaces. Things I tucked away to incorporate into my own space in some way.

Here are a few of the photographic “notes” I took of the garden tour, photos that will make it onto my Pinterest inspiration boards:

This garden was the star of the show for sheer originality. The owner of this home took the roof off the garage and turned the space into a Tuscan-style courtyard!

I love this grassy border, but even better is the moss underneath that follows the shape that the grass has taken.

I gathered quite a few ideas for border plants, but I really loved the use of purple oxalis in this gorgeous front yard. I also made note of the pretty pink cleome!

I really liked the simple typography on the brick wall. And it didn't say "garden" which would have been so obvious.

I was quite taken with this Bergman's Japanese white pine. I don't know where I'd put one, but I've filed it away for future reference.
