What's in a name?

As I began posting about the planting schemes for various parts of the yard I realized that John and I were going to need some sort of shared understanding of what we were calling each part of the yard. With so many new beds and nooks and crannies, I imagined a nightmare as we tried to communicate something about some part of the yard and having to spend way too much time explaining which bit we were talking about. Especially since I won't remember the names of plants as well as John and I pictured myself constantly saying "you know, the green thing over by the stone thingy" or something like that.

With John's input and cooperation, I came up with names for each of the unique areas of the yard. Although some of these areas will be similarly planted to some of their neighbors, they do each represent different planting schemes, locations, topography, etc.
