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.

Working Things out of My System

I have been overwhelming my self with inspiration lately, between my blogging class and the subsequent explorations, my new “can you make this into a garden series” and other funny things creeping into my life (Walt Whitman poems and the sort). I have a few things I need to just post about and get out…

1. Sugar House, 2. Untitled, 3. Grading Samples, 4. liquid gold There is snow on the ground but the temps have risen and the sap has started to flow.  This is what I love about living in a place with four distinct seasons.  Every month seems to bring about a new event to look forward…

Before & After: Bruce John Riddell’s Maine Slope

I simply adore Bruce John Riddell’s work.  His office is in Bar Harbor, Maine and they do the most amazingly beautiful natural landscapes.   This terraced slope is a beautiful work of art both in planting selections and in the stones used to sculpt the hillside.  Creating a cultivated version of nature itself in this already…
