Daily Garden 041 – James Doyle Design – Greenwich, CT

Visiting the portfolio of James Doyle Design is like watching the Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous…or if you don’t remember that show…then Cribs.  Just without the people.   I am thoroughly impressed by the obvious good fortune that this firm has had to work on such beautiful stately homes.   Most of his works seems to be much more traditional, but I chose this more modern design because I really like the front walkway.  To me this is a landscape that makes a potentially overly plain modern structure exciting and livable.  Cutting across the front of the property with an oversized herringbone paver pattern is really genius.

James’ Portfolio is a visual feast and well worth checking out further.  This double sided garden fireplace caught my eye as well as the garden below with the boxwood edging planted arches and modern sculpture.

One Response to Daily Garden 041 – James Doyle Design – Greenwich, CT

  1. I had the opportunity last summer via the APLD annual design conference to hear James talk about his work and to visit two of his gardens with him as a tour guide. Wonderful experience. I called his office this spring to ask if he would share a nursery source with me. He very graciously did. Thanks for showcasing his work.

I launched a new format for the PITH + VIGOR newsletter this morning.  I’m feeling much better about what it is (I’ve never liked it before – but struggled to get my head around what it should be). I want it to be a special and inspirational note for those of you who have signed…

Daily Garden 037: Bertotti Landscape -Bardessono Hotel

I should just go ahead and feature the Bardessono hotel as a garden destination…I will get to that. But first I want to keep celebrating the interesting work that some garden pros have done there. Bertotti Landscape Built this great walkway. I love the mix…flagstone, to wood, to poured concrete. Black rocks mix with sleek…
