Garden Gallery: Richard Powers Photography

1/19/2011

Recently, I happened across the photography portfolio of Richard Powers.  His work is beautiful but a few of his images really caught my eye.  I have no idea if they are from the same garden (wouldn’t that be an extraordinary place!)  but they are all inspiring me for different reasons.

I simply love the huge bird cage – I think that having one hanging from a tree branch in the garden would be a gorgeous way to add even more fauna to the garden.

How did they do that??? Technically, I am not quite sure, but have you ever seen a land to water transition like this? Reminds me of something you might see at the Garden of Cosmic Speculation or something.

And this rustic take on a modern negative edge pool is reminding me that mixing non-typical materials into a scheme can often provide just the right amount of surprise to make a design really work.

    i love the idea of transition, especially land to water. usually we create such stark borders. but how to do it…

  2. Matt says:

    Maybe they used those recycled PET floating island things that are used for habitat reclamation. Several square ones could be planted with short growing sedge and linked together to give the checkerboard effect along the water line.

    @ Matt:
    Especially on a tidal river/estuary and the appearance of the grassy/water squares would change over the course of the day
