Deep narrative. Over a period of years shrub/tree, below, lovingly pruned into a thing of beauty & function. How do I know? Aside from the obvious, had a witch hazel tree in my 30 year cottage garden, I pruned the same.
.
Layers of this story, below, timeless. Stone, furnishings, vanishing threshold, invitation, function, colors, etc.
.
With classics, each iteration, unique. Go deep into classic garden simplicities, results more deeply you. Another counterintuitivity of Garden Design.

Buy the classics, above, new, table/chairs, all from Ikea. (Not a promotion nor receiving paid endorsement.)

LÄCKÖ Table, outdoor IKEA Easy to keep clean – just wipe with a damp cloth. The materials in this outdoor furniture require no maintenance.

ÄLMSTA Chair IKEA Each piece of furniture is unique as it is handmade. Furniture made of natural fiber is lightweight but also sturdy and durable.

STORSELE Armchair IKEA The furniture is handmade and therefore unique, with rounded shapes and nicely detailed patterns.
This little table, below, perfect in the garage. Perhaps you need a larger table. Life in my Cottage, I would place the next day's 'take' for jobs, on a table at the back door in the garage. No garage at our ca. 1900 farmhouse, the 'take' is set on a buffet in the foyer the nite before.
ASKHOLMEN Table for wall, outdoor IKEA Space saving as the table can be folded down when not in use.
Life throws a curve ball, below.
IKEA PS VÅGÖ Chair, outdoor IKEA
These chairs remind me of a Hercule Poirot episode set during the 30's at a centuries old English estate. Oddly, they're perfect for the shed at the Potager.
SKARPÖ Armchair, outdoor IKEA The drain hole in the seat lets water drain out. Can be stacked, which helps you save space.

Often when fences go into a landscape, they can be hidden in plain view, below.

Better, the fence, hidden in foliage, can be simple, posts & rolled wire.

Small children, pets, a pool, many reasons for a fence in the garden. No reason a fence must look like a fence.

Garden & Be Well, XOT


Oddly, I feel most people hiring me are intuitive about creating a garden. What they lack is a garden education, a garden vocabulary. And are smart enough to ask for help. Which is quite bold.
.
This garden, below, perfection. At the front end of my career, I would not have understood this garden. Pure architecture. More than a backhand down the line winner, it is taking the net for an overhead smash, and better than catching your opponent wrong footed, your ball hits them in the solar plexus, knocking the air out of them, they fall backward on their rear, struggling for breath. You've won the point. Yes, this garden, below, feels that good.

Quincy Hammond, Landscape Architect, Paris. I would like to add one focal point to this wonderful backdrop of clipped greens:

However, that's not where I'm going, how-wonderful-it-is, with this garden, above. Instead, a practice garden design for you. Mentally remove your entire landscape. Next, with the garden design style, above, use only this style design to plan your new landscape. Do not worry about specific plants, put in the shapes.
.
Take it a step further, doodle it on paper, with your house & property line drawn. Go. Have fun.

Yes, I was a competitive tennis player, won district singles 4A twice, then skipped my senior year of high school to go to college.

fiberglass pools

Creating a wonderful landscape is easier than you think.

Although there will always be advantages and disadvantages to every type of pool construction, fiberglass seems to have the most benefits. Fiberglass is great in terms of construction and seamless design that easily works with almost any landscape. Here, are just a few of the benefits you will receive when you choose a fiberglass pool to add to your outdoor landscape.

Installing Fiberglass Is Quick And Painless

Fiberglass pools can be in your ground and ready to be used in just a matter of days. In fact, since fiberglass pools come as a standard unit as opposed to various different material parts, the weather hardly plays a factor in the installation process.

Extremely Low Maintenance

If you are looking for a pool that requires very minimal upkeep, a fiberglass pool is perfect for you. In fact, most fiberglass pools avoid issues with algae growing because of their non-porous surface. Therefore, when you choose a fiberglass pool you absolutely will be able to live a stress-free life not having to worry about the maintenance of your pool. This frees up time for you to take care of other aspects of your landscape design instead.
