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.

And the 3rd Winner is….

Did you read all the comments for the Shed Chic Contest?  In trying to figure out the 3rd (my choice) winner of  the book I weighed all your great responses. There are some really strong women who inspire me with their recoveries from things like lung removals (Michelle) and kidney transplants (Kath).  Wow! As well…

Cricket Radio: Enjoying & Understanding Night Sounds

What do the crickets sound like where you live?  Mine sound similar to the Pine Tree Cricket (Oecanthus pini).  That makes sense since my house is surrounded by a pine forest. Of course, I only know that by playing with this promo site by Harvard University Press for a new book by John Himmelman called…

Gillenia trifoliata – My Vote For Garden MVP of 2014 (So Far)

I think this Summer has been absolutely fantastic here in Maine. So far, there has been plenty of sunshine and enough warmth to make everything grow and prosper. The plants have leapt from the slow, cool spring to seemingly take in all that summer has to offer, just like the throngs of tourists that visit…
