The corner of a fenced-in yard can become an intimate, peaceful spot to relax in.

If you have partial to full shade, you might even have trouble growing a lawn.

Instead, you could try using mulch as a ground cover for paths, and filling the garden beds with shade loving perennials and annuals.

In this space, the focal point is the pergola, finished to match the wooden privacy fence.

Climbing hydrangea will work well for a shady spot where a climber is needed.

The green foliage is very attractive, and when in bloom, it is covered with white, lacy flowers similar to the ones on Lacecap Hydrangeas.

Hosta is the perfect choice for shade areas in your garden. A large number of variegated cultivars can provide color and contrast in a full shade garden.

The large container in the front, with the wrought iron tuteur (growing cage), is planted with variegated ivy.

A bed full of a shade-loving annual, such as impatients or lobelia, adds a splash of color in an otherwise monochromatic scheme.
