Ryan Gainey Inspiration

I am always interested to learn of a new (at least to me) landscape designer that creates unique and magical gardens. I was reading Chis Heiler’s blog and came across an interview he did with Ryan Gainey. Ryan’s self description —  “Gardener, poet, raconteur, philosopher, mentor, verbite, visionary, designer, and showman all in one…” makes me think I would like him immediately. The interview is worth a read to learn more about the designer who creates gardens today that you would think were from another era.
Definitely a romantic style, I thought I would share a few interesting pictures from his portfolio for your inspiration.

I love this picture of Ryan and this rendering of a show garden for the Chicago Flower Show is something I would love to hang in my home.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
