Creating a garden that beckons…

Components:

pathways
curves
plant placement
planters
birdbaths
fences
gates (slightly open)

plant near, close, further

enhance a view
make the view a focal point
make your view, the backdrop

plant in multiples
stepping stones

place potted pants in the interior

structures like obelisks, archways, pergola…

~

The garden that beckons,
come here, play, enjoy
don’t go to work!
come hither…

I create this look, or feeling,
in the garden
with pathways that curve,
placement of a shrub or a tall perennial,
a statue, or garden structure.

– things that obstruct one’s view,
calling out to you, “come hither”
see what’s beyond.

& then an element of surprise
that makes your heart sing
like a sunset or the morning’s mist.

Thank you universe
