 Where to use Perennials in the Perennial border
Perennial borders around the edges of the home plot or old-style back yard have done much to get people away from the old type of gardening that consisted of a lawn cluttered up with small flower beds.

Some designers feel that the front edge of the perennial border should be a continuous planting of one kind of plant; others that it may be made up of different types of low-growing plants.

 Designing a Perennial Garden
The thousands of different perennials vary widely in their growth and blooming habits, and each has different needs that must be met in order to thrive.
Ideally, a perennial garden grows for many years in the same location, so make a note not only of present light conditions, but also of future possibilities.
However, even with generous spacing, most perennials will need to be divided from time to time and the clumps reduced to a manageable size.
