Cottage Garden With Black Picket Fence Relaxed plantings are typical of a cottage garden design. Pink and red flowers line a stone walkway surrounded by pebbles and a black picket fence in this garden for a classic cottage design.
Cottage rose garden - Manicured borders are out and full, freeform planting is in. To capture the cottage style, plant hardy perennials like hydrangea and tea roses — forget symmetry. Demure pastels like pink and lavender are the must-have color palette.
Peony and Iris border: Neighbors down the street have an old stone wall out by the road. A border of pink peonies and various shades of purple and lilac irises grows in front of it. What a glorious sight it is each year.
