All keen gardeners enjoy seeing how other people have created their garden. Often you can pick up a few ideas that you can use yourself. Well here is your opportunity to see some twenty different gardens. Recently Annie Thornton from the Houzz website invited readers to submit pictures of their gardens showing their favorite fall plantings and this is the result.

Sometimes a winning show comes from an ensemble cast. Such is the case in the garden, where there are standout plants for sure, but the combination is what paints a complete picture. With planting season upon home gardeners, now is the time to round up the actors.
Calling all Houzzers: Do you have a favorite planting combination in your garden or in a garden you?ve designed? Homeowners, show us a picture of your gardens. Designers, upload a picture of a garden you?ve recently designed where you felt you really hit a winning combination. Share the plant names too, if you can.
