Before & After – Shirley Alexandra Watts

May 13, 2009

I am having a moment here with Shirley Alexandra Watts.  I am completely fascinated and intrigued by her work.
She specializes in “cutting edge designs, combining plantsmanship, innovative materials and foraged urban archeology. She believes gardens can reuse, reinvent and reflect contemporary culture.” Here is a very nice before and after…and also a couple of her every intriguing garden lights.

    Wow, now that’s a makeover. I’m impressed with the separation of space to create different functional areas.

    This is such an improvement! Love the “firewood” wall and the complete lack of lawn!

    This resin mold is fascinating..pine cone clusters or rhody blossoms could be cool…have you seen the woven lighting at birch and willow? not sure of outdoor application but for interiors its quite interesting and uses some local material, woman owned business etc.. boston..
