Garden Gallery: Simplicity

Garden Gallery: Simplicity

It is the typical lament of the garden worker that spring is just nuts.  As much as anyone else I am prone to the insanity of the sudden onset of additional work.  I am already craving simplicity and quiet again — this garden brought me right there. I think: Who says we need more than a couple chairs, some grass, a…

Garden Gallery: Ryue Nishizawa’s Garden House

How about this little slice of inspiration for monday morning.  Landscapers are always trying to get architects, homeowners and builders  to involve them earlier and more holistically into the process of site design and construction….and it often doesn’t happen.  So this notion of integrating gardens and greenery to an even greater level seems particularly  remarkable. I do hope we…

In the Garden With: Luke Dixon

In the Garden With: Luke Dixon

Luke Dixon is an apiarist, an apiculturist, a caretaker for bees – I call him a B-man.  His new book, Keeping Bees in Towns and Cities, published by Timber Press, is all about urban beekeeping and not only is it full of helpful advice for urban beekeepers but there are case studies of beekeepers (including me!) all around the…

Garden Gallery: GraftWorks Twisted Roof

Have you ever considered giving your deck a twist – literally?  The idea of changing up the edge, putting some plants beneath and making the whole thing more exciting seems like it might have application beyond the top of a building in Greenwich Village, NYC. I would perhaps try this for a ground level deck or a…

Chelsea Flower Show 2012 – Diarmuid Gavin’s Magical Pyramid

Chelsea Flower Show 2012 – Diarmuid Gavin’s Magical Pyramid

I have been pondering how to bring you the wealth of garden inspiration that I am finding here at Chelsea.   The gardens are, as usual, filled with design inspiration, back stories, pretty plants, and modern ideas.   While I continue to organize my images and my thoughts, I think I simply need to stick with the…

Scrappy Roof Gardens ~ Before They Were Cool

Scrappy Roof Gardens ~ Before They Were Cool

I just discovered Penelope Green’s article titled On City Roof Tops, Scrappy Green Spaces in Bloom in the New York Times.  (It is from last summer…so I guess I am a bit behind).  I wanted to point it out to you, because I love how it shares spaces that were created long before it was cool to create…

Daily Garden: Adrianna’s Long Beach Front & Roof Gardens

Have you taken down your holiday decorations?   Mine are long gone, but I can’t help but post this front landscape and accompanying roof garden (resplendant with pre-holiday decor) because not only is the garden just so cool, but I kind of love the way the pointsettias and the pretty stars play to the landscape in such…

Garden Gallery: Nuria Mora’s Rooftop Garden

Nuria Mora has a new installation on a rooftop by the East River in New York City.  It’s not jsut a painting, but a garden, in the most artisitc sense.  And I kinda adore it’s simplicity.   More about Nuria’s process  here. And if this kind of thing intrigues you — check out this video.

Garden Gallery: Sebastian Mariscal in Tijuana

Happy Monday!!  I’ve got a a little blockade of draft posts to clear out today (Now that I am past Friday’s Bluehost image rejecting drama). This is a quickie — then I have to make an airport run and I will be back again later today. This totally hip garden by Sebastian Mariscal is located…
