I design & build gardens and this blog is about all things landscape and garden that can influence garden making. My bias is toward the clean, straight forward, and spare but I can be seduced as much as anyone by the sensuality of nature. However, what I post will be about more than the pretty, precious, and nostalgic. We'll see how well I do. And "Carex"? It's a sedge frequently used in planting native gardens. I like it very much.
The Obelisk Garden in British designers, Isabel and Julien Bannerman’s home garden at Hanham Court. That their style is romantic and floriferous goes without saying, I suppose. They’re also quirky. Check out the 3 steer fountain. Located in West Sussex, England. Photo by Mike Hales.
