At High Glen Gardens, I oversaw a garden “room” called the Summer House. This garden had a color scheme of silver and white with accents of yellow and other bright colors, and featured a variety of plants from the Mediterranean and American Southwest.
Over time, areas of the garden needed to be refreshed. I created new designs for three key areas in the Summer House garden: the arbor, the “window”, and the northwest corner.
The Northwest Corner
This corner of the garden needed some refreshing and the owner wanted to eliminate an unused pathway. The design I created gave the corner more variety and visual structure. Tamarisk shrubs planted near the back helped to screen a utility post.
