In the Garden With: Garden Design Dana

My dear Dana Frigerio lives in in one of my most favorite places – the Amalfi Coast of Italy – can you imagine designing gardens there?!?  So of course her blog is duly inspirational and beautiful.  Surprisingly Dana says that she  was never interested in gardening when she was young, but now cultivates a kitchen garden and enjoys that hard work as she gets older.

What do you do to find inspiration?


I find my inspiration looking to any object in my house or looking to images in my books, they can also be paintings but also from Internet, is an inexhaustible source of ideas . it all depends on your creativity and imagination. This work gives me the opportunity to create always an original project because the location and customer requirements are always different.

Best Garden or Design Advice Ever (Given or Received)?
