    Hi Laura, you do such a lovely job in your garden, I really love the green ans white in the new area you have done, it looks so elegant, how is the garden around the chicken pen going, last time I seen them you just put in the edging. and planting some plants has it grown much since then. Thank you so much for your encouragement, we are in winter here in Australia so I can only do tidying up. too cold outside. keep up the great videos, I enjoy them. cheers Debbie.

  2. Andrea Monique on July 23, 2019 at 2:31 pm

    Yes! Your videos are very inspiring. As a matter of fact in the middle I started to think how I can fix my flower beds. Hehe

  3. Donna W on July 23, 2019 at 2:33 pm

    Great video! Wonderful plants, so helpful to see you clean up the plants, thank you!♥️💙💚💛

  4. FConsultant Venture on July 23, 2019 at 2:37 pm

    Your videos are great. Keep them coming. Just awesome to know that I’m not the only one obsessed with gardening. Really nice to watch you and your garden. You’ve got the gardening bug as do I.

  5. jacaranda o on July 23, 2019 at 2:38 pm

    Wow! You have the most beautiful garden!

  6. Cindy Fusco on July 23, 2019 at 2:39 pm

    Everything you do is just beautiful! Go for some color! Don’t know where you find the time!🌸🌸 Big fan from CT

  7. gayla gavin on July 23, 2019 at 2:39 pm

    At 18:58, did you mean liatris instead of buddleia? If that is buddleia could you show it more closely?I love the white and green. But, because you laid in a good structure, I think your choices are very wide. And, you have such a great eye that whatever you do will be great. Yes, I find these types of videos very motivational and relatable and love them. Thanks for doing them!

  8. Critter Girl on July 23, 2019 at 2:40 pm

    At 4:48…how can one tell the difference between a Potentilla and a Geum? My Geum look just like that. I know they are related.

  9. Susan Hugill on July 23, 2019 at 2:41 pm

    Yes stay with the white.

  10. Michelle Brady on July 23, 2019 at 2:41 pm

    I love the green and white color palette. Just go with your gut feeling and follow your original plan. Your videos are so motivating that I have decided to redo the foundation planting beds around our house. Also to attempt to talk my dad into replacing some trees.💕🌱🌲🌻🌼❣😊 I like the fact that we are in similar zones and are dealing with the same soil conditions.

  11. Eudene Clay on July 23, 2019 at 2:42 pm

    I love the whites with the greens. The lights on the urns was a great idea too. I know it is beautiful at night!!!! 😘

  12. Camille on July 23, 2019 at 2:42 pm

    I would pick a color grouping for each section. All white and green will be too limiting in a space that big, IMHO.

  13. Anne hedlund on July 23, 2019 at 2:43 pm

    I am with the others–stick to the green and white! Looks clean and classy. I think the white supertunias make almost a ground cover because they are dense. Looks great–restrain yourself!!!

  14. Tse Tan on July 23, 2019 at 2:44 pm

    Came back from vacation a week ago still jet-legged. 02:56am and awake watching your videos n thinking about going to my front yard n prune my flowers but it’s too dark outside 😁 Thanks for the inspiration, days here in Utah is at 100*f🥵

  15. Grace Cakes on July 23, 2019 at 2:44 pm

    So motivating!!!! ❤️

  16. Michele W on July 23, 2019 at 2:45 pm

    Please, please leave the formal entry all white and green. It is such a gracious, elegant look that you have all the bones in place for. Consider it your "formal area" and add your color to your numerous other beautiful garden "rooms." Love you Laura!

  17. Nanaslegacy on July 23, 2019 at 2:50 pm

    Love your gardens and videos! I hope you do one of your vegetable beds soon would love to see how it’s doing and what you do with your harvest! How do you work with long sleeves when it’s so hot!? I live in eastern Washington so I have the same zone as you and I know how uncomfortable it is working in that heat!

  18. Sara Davies on July 23, 2019 at 2:50 pm

    all of your videos are brilliant! Don’t ever stop doing them! always very helpful!

  19. Holly Hasegawa Nielson on July 23, 2019 at 2:53 pm

    Beautiful plants Laura, I love the Echinacea, I have the purple cone flower Echinacea, I really love this flower, it comes back bigger and better every year. I love you color combinations, not too over the top. I love watching you plant things it’s very relaxing and inspires me to get my butt into gear and get my own yard in order. Thanks so much Laura and Aaron, another great video.

  20. Maggie White on July 23, 2019 at 2:53 pm

    You don’t seem to have any mulching in the garden? We do a lot of mulching in Australia to help with water retention and it also improves the soil.

  21. kay pace on July 23, 2019 at 2:55 pm

    I love the green and white and the formality!

  22. Julio Flores on July 23, 2019 at 2:56 pm

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the idea of addsing some lambs eat in to the bed. Some other texture and color in the bed would surely compliment it well. Maybe add some Icelandic poppies or an ice plant too?

  23. Janice Vidro on July 23, 2019 at 2:57 pm

    White and green is great!

  24. Maria Nafranowicz on July 23, 2019 at 2:58 pm

    I agree white and green is elegant also adding more of the same plants in pattern might add more eye appeal.

  25. Moni- Lindley on July 23, 2019 at 3:00 pm

    I love how you totally regift plants 😂

  26. Rebecca Stokes on July 23, 2019 at 3:02 pm


  27. Susan Bahl on July 23, 2019 at 3:02 pm

    That “mushroom” looks like slime mold. I get it in my gardens. Not harmful; just an eyesore.

  28. Raffaella Vitiello on July 23, 2019 at 3:03 pm

    I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY you want to plant thing under a willow????? Why i would put a coup,e of big rocks and a lovely bench and sit underneat . Sorry but a willow is so beautiful it is a statement all by himself and why should you mutilate this beauty for few little plants why why!!???

  29. RuinedObelisk on July 23, 2019 at 3:05 pm

    You should have as a mini white garden for that calming, relaxing feeling .💕

  30. xzor01 on July 23, 2019 at 3:05 pm

    8:50 is a slime mold. Not harmful… just weird.

  31. Camilla * on July 23, 2019 at 3:06 pm

    I LOVE formal…and for me…the beautiful round shape of globe arborvitae, either in the emerald green or the golden is PERFECTION! They are so lush and evergreen and they really don’t need pruning to keep their shape, especially if you get the miniature sizes, which are great for borders and architecture anywhere in the garden! I love to clump them as the years pass and have several different sizes which really makes a statement! Love, love willows—-every variety! 👍👍🤓

  32. Sharyl Olson on July 23, 2019 at 3:06 pm

    I so enjoy listening to your thoughts on planting, teaching us how to dead head perennials. My vote for the formal pathway colors is just like you have it, green with white.

  33. Grace Cakes on July 23, 2019 at 3:06 pm

    I love love green and white! And you have tons of color elsewhere!

  34. Katie Lynn on July 23, 2019 at 3:07 pm

    You make the best videos! I’m always entertained the whole video. 💛

  35. P Ney on July 23, 2019 at 3:10 pm

    Keep it clean and Stately….love it this way. You have many other fuller areas ..not really need in the entry.

  36. Jan Greenwood on July 23, 2019 at 3:12 pm

    Hi Laura and Aaron, I think "These One’s" as in the green and white are perfect. xxx

  37. Tina Robert on July 23, 2019 at 3:13 pm

    Keep the white and green pallet

  38. L Bauer on July 23, 2019 at 3:14 pm

    My local garden centers have certainly benefited from all you have inspired me to do! I say every year…I’m cutting back 😂. I like the calmness, serenity and simplicity of the formal green and white garden and would keep it that way. A nice change of pace from the abundance of the other gardens. Maybe add hydrangeas. Or a water feature. And seating to enjoy the views.

  39. RuinedObelisk on July 23, 2019 at 3:15 pm

    I love the white and green! I have a white garden, so got some great ideas 💕 also we have the same felco number 2 haha Xx

  40. liz on July 23, 2019 at 3:15 pm

    I love a good workout with my chain saw. LOL Pruners just don’t get it for me. 😉

  41. Killerelitexl on July 23, 2019 at 3:16 pm

    The white/green is really pretty and elegant. But I can see you popping in color in the opposite beds. Either would look nice.

  42. willothewispl on July 23, 2019 at 3:16 pm

    So pretty and calming.

  43. charris721 on July 23, 2019 at 3:18 pm

    Love a single color like the white. Much more formal and the pop of color at the end is perfect. I am having trouble with three butterfly bushes I planted this spring. Every leaf is covered with silver spots the length of a 1/2 grain of rice – about the same width as a grain of rice. It looks maybe a leaf miner of some sort but each little spot is identical in color and size. I’ve sprayed and sprayed to no avail. No one at either nursery near me knows what it is but it is killing my bushes. Any help appreciated. Thx

  44. Evergreen Cottage on July 23, 2019 at 3:20 pm

    Love the willows Laura. I really wish our garden was large enough to include one.

  45. Marie Morris on July 23, 2019 at 3:21 pm

    Since you love a formal garden, stick with white and green. You can always try more color another season. It’s all so lovely Laura.

  46. Julie Frymoyer on July 23, 2019 at 3:22 pm

    I think you would be most happy to have a couple of colors that repeat on the west side formal garden. You have said that you would love an area of white and green, but I don’t know if that would tick all your boxes haha. For the record though, I do enjoy the white and green palette and I think you should keep that tone for a little while and try it out because it’s very different from what you have going on in the rest of your beds.

  47. Vikkie Lafollette on July 23, 2019 at 3:26 pm

    Absolutely beautiful. I can’t believe I’m saying saying this but I think I’d keep it all white and green. I think I’d deck it out with white tulips, white daffodils, white day lilies, Casablanca oriental day lilies, white agapanthus, white echinacea, white phlox and white bearded iris, white PG hydrangeas, some lambs ear and maybe some artemisia. I don’t know if they have a white Butterfly bush in the sterile ones you can grow. But I think that would be gorgeous.

  48. Ana Fairbanks on July 23, 2019 at 3:27 pm

    Go for it with color. Color, color, color!

  49. sarahburdify on July 23, 2019 at 3:27 pm

    Green and white vote! I’ve been partial to that combo since my first garden centre employee days (paid for university working at one in the summers and made my way into managing the perennial department by the end). You two have been such an inspiration while I set up my first garden at our new place this year. Decent sized yard next to a forest (lots of wild fern pay no attention to our fence so it’s been such an interesting adventure so far) and we aren’t too far above a massive swath of the Canadian Shield underground (and in Zone 4). Every gardening experience teaches you something. My new unexpected research area is shrubs, trees and perennials that don’t mind shallow roots because the rock underground sure is staying put and hopefully so am I. Laura, you’ve literally changed my lexicon and thought process when it comes to what I used to call chores. Now everything is a Laura style “project” to me and when I don’t feel like hustling some days, I think of you guys sweating away in Oregon and working your butts off (and with a young child to boot), and I stop the procrastinating on the not as fun projects, and get out there and work it. Thanks for making my first summer in my new garden so fun. I mean it when I say you’ve both been an inspiration. Thank you!

  50. jeandunne on July 23, 2019 at 3:28 pm

    I NEED TO CONTROL MYSELF! …hahahahaha! I know the feeling Laura.
