Three Garden Design ‘changes’, below. Each gorgeous home/garden, snagged the attention of Muse at first glance, below.
Scroll thru, below, does your Garden Design ‘eye’ see instant changes to be made? Never meant to bash a Garden Design, simply to make living better, or accentuate architecture with Garden Design as the tipping point.
Top pic, above, incredible quality, gate, pierced brick wall, plantings, urns. Site urns a bit wider, their scale demands more space, once moved the gate/columns appear more generous, not so tight.
Bottom pic, above, a tightly packed neighborhood, yet the porch is mostly private. Go team. To add the illusion of a larger garden, stain the fence 2 tones darker than the kaki from the porch floor. I would also espalier sasanqua next to the fence.
What did you see? What changes did your eye want to make?
Changes mentioned were merely the basics. Making further changes I must know the owners, and see inside their homes. Excepting the middle pic, it would be ‘done’. Did you notice the urns in the middle pic? Reminds me of a recent client, her husband started pressure washing in their garden, and she caught him, and stopped him, before he removed the patina off every focal point. Funny story now, only because everyone knows it was not funny in the moment, poor husband.
