I am always interested to learn of a new (at least to me) landscape designer that creates unique and magical gardens. I was reading Chis Heiler’s blog and came across an interview he did with Ryan Gainey. Ryan’s self description — “Gardener, poet, raconteur, philosopher, mentor, verbite, visionary, designer, and showman all in one…” makes me think I would like him immediately. The interview is worth a read to learn more about the designer who creates gardens today that you would think were from another era.
Definitely a romantic style, I thought I would share a few interesting pictures from his portfolio for your inspiration.
I love this picture of Ryan and this rendering of a show garden for the Chicago Flower Show is something I would love to hang in my home.
