Hey There! I’m Rochelle Greayer. I’m a garden designer on TV and IRL. I’m also an author and entrepreneur who thinks she can save the world by teaching everyone a little something about landscape design.






Daily Garden Made Wijaya (Michael White) Tropical Design

Made Wijaya is said to be the pioneer of the ‘Tropical Costwoldes’ and ‘Classic Courtyard’ styles.  He is one of my personal design heroes having built an enviable business creating gardens in the tropics for beautiful homes owned by the likes of David Bowie and even more beautiful hotels.


I love this paving/planting outdoor floor treatment.

The attention to detail (the loose stone and paving combo, the interesting pool bottom, the cut stone bases for the planters, etc.) are, to me, what makes this garden so interesting.  It shows how making each tiny piece a feature adds up to an overall very interesting thing to look at.

I am intrigued by this picture, as it seems to me that by putting the terracotta pots in the gravel of the water feature, the common issue of terracotta and pottery pots drying out too fast would be much more manageable.
