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.

  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.

New Feature: But I’m not sure what to call it?

So I have this idea for a new regular feature here.  My husband insists that is shoudl be called “WTF is that?” While I agree, that does seem the perfect name, I am struggling to commit to the ‘F’.   I am an avid ‘F’ user but to have it as the title of a regular…

DIY Tool organizer

My shed is mess…it smells like mold, and fertilizer and who knows what else and it is a disorganized heap of things I can’t explain.  It is embarrassing.  It needs the same attention I have been giving the inside of my house over the winter…a plan, an organizational scheme, and major clear out. I love…
