The Terrace Beds

The terrace beds at Peter and Teddy Berg's garden are in full swing this time of year and they look terrific. It has been a great year for growing, with lots of rain, sun, and heat, and the plants do look their best. The terrace beds are the most formal part of the garden and they are packed full of lush, glorious plants. There are a few grounding shrubs and many classic perennials that come into their peak in late July, particularly with the blooming of the day lilies.

Looking across the path in the hot bed. There are two major planting groups based on hot and cool color schemes.
