Today’s garden has me conflicted. I am a fan of interesting and novel design. I’m also a fan of technically well executed work. But while I can appreciate some of what makes this garden, I don’t have a love of the whole space.
To me it doesn’t fit, it’s quirky off-centerness is cool, but in context, nonsensical. And the materials don’t fit. And there is just so much hardscaping! And I really miss having plants. I think they might make the whole thing more appropriate.
If I were brought in to work on this garden, I might make myself the challenge of not changing the hardscaping too much but instead making it appropriate, and beautiful with just an updating or addition of plants. What do you think of this place? If you love it, I’d like to hear why, but if you don’t I am curious what you might do to fix it on a budget?
