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.

Garden Gallery: A Polish Japanese Garden

Or maybe I should rephrase and say a Japanese style garden in a suburb of the polish city of Warsaw… I have been working on a bigger post about specific Japanese garden design styles (hint: there isn’t just one and it isn’t called zen) so this garden from Ogrody magazine caught my eye.  Outside of…

DIY: Cinder Block Focal Point Vertical Planter

Cinder blocks are not just for holding up your TV…. image by ecken I think this is a great idea to build on and refine.  Create a vertical garden easily.  The stacking options of cinder blocks are endless, it can be random or full of patterns and what if you painted or concrete-stained the blocks. …

Before & After: Construction Begins!

This feels like a real tease -I’m sorry (kinda).  But I suppose it wouldn’t be a real garden story if you didn’t feel the full range of emotion that a garden design client feels.  Including impatience. ;0 When building a garden with a design and build team, there is, of course, the excitement of the…
