I got my garden under control! Only 5 stitches were trimmed from my 4&1/2” x 3” area but the difference in stitches made for a cleaner garden:

Far left & right walkway: Alternating Cashmere

Outer rectangular portion (listed in a clockwise manner starting at high noon):

  • Byzantine
  • Triple Leviathan
  • Tied Windmills
  • Ringed Daisies
  • Double Crossed Diamond

Corners of inner square portion: Couched Boucle (dark green) & Criss Cross Hungarian (grey/brown over-dye)

Inner diamond portions: Inner: Woven Cross filled in with Squared Palestrina Knot, Raised Knot, Colonial Knot & French Knot (nice variety of knotted stitches)

Inner diamond border: Upright Crosses

Center portion: Walneto surrounded by tent

Divide walkway from planted areas: Couched Boucle (light green)

Stitch books used:

  • The Needlepoint Book by Jo Ippolito Christensen
  • Stitches To Go by Suzanne Howren and Beth Robertson
  • Stitch Sampler by Lucinda Ganderton
  • Elegant Stitches by Judith Baker Montano

With so many different stitches and so many colors, I would prefer a plainer/simpler frame. I love this frame but not for this piece. Just my humble opinion.
