We were thrilled to work with these clients! This backyard is divided between full sun and mostly shade. How do you pull it together into a cohesive whole? Use the right plant material that handles our tough freezes, brutal summers and stages of drought. A landscape needs to provide year-round beauty. We focused on foliar color and beautiful blooming shrubs that have different textures. Designs By Elizabeth is thrilled to be one of the first to use Southern Living's Sunshine Ligustrum. There is no comparison to the brilliant yellow that stays compact. Sunshine looks delicate, but hardly so! This tough evergreen is as hardy as boxwood. Look for the beautiful shrub next year when it is open for market!
