Stuck in a gardening rut? Try this trick!

A complete transformation of your existing landscape is not necessary to achieve the subtle, Old World English charm of a border. Hickey says that utilizing existing shrubs, trees or structure as a backdrop to the border makes it feel naturally established. “It’s all about making it feel like something that’s been here forever,” she explains, and here on Cape Cod, maintaining the natural, historic charm of a landscape isn’t hard to do. 

Thomas Edison once said, “If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.” It’s something that “Capability” Brown ambitiously understood, and it’s something that Hickey has grasped as well through imaginative design and undeterred passion, implementing it every day across her beloved home of Cape Cod and showing exactly what this region is capable of.
