Earth Spirit sculpture and Crocosmia.
Green Way Gardening began consulting on the design of this courtyard garden in late summer 2010. Becuase of irrigation and light issues, Cheryl suggested a sculpture for this tall, narrow corner. The desire to have a lot of structure as well as brilliant color, led to the choice of specialty conifers and several large containers.
Sculptural evergreens and colorful containers.
Brilliant colors in just as brilliant sun beneath a wooden bench.
Deep contrasts of sunlight and shadow call for dramatic color and form.
Newly planted groundcover begins to soften hard edges with bright color.
Shady corner near exterior fireplace, enlivened with cobalt blue containers.
Open and connected to the exterior landscape.
Gate closed, and a sense of containment and peace prevail.
