Flower power

A Cincinnati home has plenty of space—both indoors and out—for the owner to practice her gardening skills

Automatic, retractable screens make an outdoor seating area a fresh-air-filled extension of the hearth room. An outdoor TV can be seen from the sofa or the nearby open air dining area.

This couple added a pergola to create a bit of privacy in their pool area. Gwen planted Wisteria and expects those vines to fill in over the next few years.

Next to the fire pit in this back yard, one of two perennial beds adds a bit of eye—and butterfly—candy.

Bella and Bodee (who recently passed) keep Gwen company while she works in her new potting shed.

Flowers in the landscape bed were added by the homeowner, but anything that required a ladder was left to the window box designers.

This homeowner enjoys collecting antique watering cans, which she displays throughout her new potting shed.

This potting shed isn’t heated, but an expansive window and doors that open to the back yard provide plenty of fresh air and sunshine during spring and summer months.

Blooms cut from the nearby perennial bed add an artistic touch to this outdoor seating area.

This homeowner always finds the time to stop and play with the dogs—even when she's gardening in her beloved potting shed.

This new garden shed is a place for the owner to display collectibles that express her love of gardening.

A rustic table found in Waynesville serves as this owner's central workstation in her new garden shed.
