Before & After: Driftwood Sculpture

I was pleased to see that a piece of driftwood that the owners of Classic Nursery and Landscape Company (in Woodinville, WA) owned made it’s way to being something really fantastic.

Here it is before — being used as a garden ornament of sorts.  It’s ok…but I personally prefer the after.

What do you think, is this a better use?   Personally, I am loving it!  If I were driving past this place — I would totally swerve wildly off the road to take in the nursery.

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.

    I refuse to believe that anyone can like the after better than the before.

    I think that the color is interesting and eclectic. I love the natural look as well but there is something very attractive to the bright yellow!
