Garden Gallery: An Oregon Coast Garden

11 March 2011 | Gardens

This Oregon coast garden created by Mosaic Gardens is full of beautiful ideas.  There is nothing typical about this design.  Catching my eye are the over-sized arbor over the ‘L’ shaped bench.  Typically you might see a narrower arbour over a single bench.

The planting is striking and bold, combining well known plants but in slightly lesser favored varieties.  (like the yellow Kniphofia and the fresh green Japanese maple, as opposed to the typical red)

The Andy Goldsworthy-esque stone sculpture in the gravel courtyard is also a strikingly simple  feature.

As is the Birch tunnel.

And the elegant bowl in the circle patio. And the use of purple leaved plants through out to give a unifying style.  So many things to admire…what is your favorite?

They are all my favorite. Gardening is one of many reasons I loved living in the Northwest for 10 years.
