Country Living Magazine’s ‘6 Ways to Plant a Perfect English Garden’ is the ideal primer to prepare your home for the upcoming warmer weather.

When art dealer Joyce Nereaux Moore and her journalist husband, Gerald Moore, bought their home on the riverbank of Hudson, New York, in 1999, they knew they needed to change their then-confused landscape.

Follow tips from Country Living such as:

    • Embracing high-contrast combos
    • Define a garden with horticulture and structure
    • Make a bold statement by planting in profusion
