Simple, Elegant Garden Design
At the East Coast Radio House and Garden Show this year we designed a garden with simplicity and elegance in mind, in order to create a courtyard space that is tranquil and inviting.
The focal point included an elegant sandstone bowl from Wilson Stone, with a unique, one-of-a kind bronze sculpture from Sarah Cronin Designs used as the center piece of the sandstone bowl water feature.
Its whimsical design, which mimics that of water reeds, complements and gives movement and interest to the water feature. Juncus kraussii grasses were used to soften and green the feature.
The base of the water feature was then surrounded by Anthericum ‘Starlight’ (variegated bumblebee grass). These grasses were planted en-masse to create a frame for the focal point, and to not distract from the intricate detail of the sculpture.
Sanded pine was used to frame the garden bed, complementing the natural feel of the design.
The contemporary pergola installed by Mallet Industries was designed to create a framework around the courtyard design, which brings together all the elements. The beautiful botanical art hung on the back wall was the final touch.
