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 stone pavilion in the middle of the Summer House garden had a large opening on the east side that framed a section of the garden border. This area was struggling due to poor drainage and needed to be re-designed.
I incorporated silver plants, white flowers, and splashes of color to match the color scheme of the rest of the garden. I also included a citrus tree in a large container with a colorful and dramatic underplanting.
