Garden Gallery: American Horticulture Society’s Music Garden

New for 2011 – no more ‘Daily Garden’ feature.  Since it wasn’t daily, it was starting to seem like lying.  So now I will simply have the Garden Gallery every Wednesday.  I will share as many inspiring gardens as I can find that week, whatever that number is.  Now, I can stop feeling bad about the name.

The first of today’s gardens was designed by La Pierre Studio.  River Farm is the HQ for the American Horticultural Society.  The inspirations I take from this are the simple planting, the great details of stones in the path (must figure out how that was done), the logs (which I am not sure of their purpose but I like them, casual seating maybe?) and finally — the whole idea of creating a place in the garden where musicians can perform.  Beautiful.

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.
