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.

Daily Garden 022: Nicholas Dexter at Hampton Court

Nicholas Dexter created this garden for the Hampton Court Palace Flower show.  I love that imaginative stacking of the square cut stones to create benches and land masses in the garden.   Also I think the combination of sleek square cut pavers with the natural shape of a river cutting through the patio is stunning.  You…

What You Need When It’s Not Quite Warm Outside

It is a completely glorious snow melting day (though still, a few inches remain on the north-side lawn).  All the sparkly sun made me want to head out side and get my hands dirty….but then I realized…its not quite warm… Nor is it very dry either…in fact it is sopping muddy wet…so I refrained. Instead, I pulled…
