Tree Root Land Art

Roots and all the goings-on underground are that part of the garden that you generally can’t see and whose fascinating structures we rarely visually appreciate.  Hence the reason I love this installation so much.  Its fanciful and interesting to look at but also a subtle reminder that gardens always hold much more than the eye can readily see.

I have totally lost track of where this image originated or if I ever even know who the designer was so if you know, please share so due credit can be awarded.

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.

    Great Post. I did something like this recently but completely missed the opportunity to mimic roots! I’m such a moron. What a great idea. My land art was purely abstract in nature. I call it green amoeba shape.
