Belgravia House in London by Todhunter Earle. Even though this is a rooftop garden, the design show would be excellent for any long, narrow yard. Great way to break up the space by making different "zones"!
We grow mint and sage every year. If it helps with mosquitoes I am all for it. HGTV-hand-made herbs for mosquito repellant bundles. Tie sprigs of lavender, sage, and mint into bundles to sit alongside a fire pit to smoulder or for kindling.
