Anyone have any suggestions on garden design, any good books you've read, any helpful tips. I have lots of shade and would like to use natives but don't mind nonnatives. I have talked to a couple of designers but would rather do it my self. I need help with plant choices and placement. I play around and move things if they don't work out. Then there is the hardscape to deal with. Truely a work in progress. Really have gotten into Hydrangeas lately also. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
