The transformation Gisela made in her Northern California Garden is truly extraordinary!

All the rusty wheels, springs, bits and bobs really give a cohesiveness to the garden.  It is like an art gallery of rust covered implements.  Repetition in the garden is a good thing and I have to say I never really thought about repeating something like garden art or sculpture in this way to bring together a design.   It has me thinking about other ways (besides repeating plants) to make a design cohesive.   Have you done this in a garden…what non-plant items did you repeat?

  1. Wow… I love it. I’ve never thought about repeated sculpture as a design element either — currently I have NO non-plant items in my garden. Something to think about.

    You added a lot of pop in the back garden area. Using rusty found objects? looks like a good solution…plus I am a sucker for anything with a little rusty (or mossy) patina on it. Matti

  3. Laura W says:

    Great idea, I’m going to remember this for future consideration. In my own garden, I’ve considered the option of staying with one repeating style for planters/pots as well as fences/structures. As soon as I think I’ve made a decision, I see something that breaks the “rules” that I must have. So for now, I keep it consistent within the line of vision from wherever you are viewing the garden.
