Late Spring is highlighted by the white blossoms of Foxglove Beardtongue, Pentstemon digitalis, (center).

Note how the turf grass along the curb looks brown and yuckie while the native flowers and grasses are rich, colorful and healthy.


The same garden as viewed from the sidewalk. See the interesting stone and brick features that accentuate this small bed.

Parkway gardens should be as low as possible. This is often difficult because most native plants are fairly tall. The idea is that you don't want to obstruct the view of the street. Sometimes this is even a local ordinance.

This parkway garden is located near Barrie Park in south Oak Park, IL.

The parkway is large and wide and gets full sun.

The snow-covered garden in the Winter!

Wildflower gatdens look good throughout the year.


See how nice the these clumps of native grasses look.

These grasses are very sturdy and will stand up even in the strongest snowstorm.

And most importantly, the Art and Linda's garden sign.
