Before & After: Sue’s Finnish Rainbow Garden

When I first found this makeover I assumed it was a garden located somewhere in the middle of America.  It just looks so familiar to me that I was surprised to discover that Sue and her garden are actually in Finland!  This is, I think, Studio ‘g’s  first Finnish Garden.

My favorite part is the rainbow shaped path that leads to the apple tree.  The tree of life in a garden full of vegetables and fruit has such a nice symbolism.

Neat and tidy and organized, I find this mostly kitchen garden to be so appealing not only as a place to source all the best of the season, but also to hang out in.   The green tented area is the strawberry patch and I am highly envious of the greenhouse.  It looks like the greenhouse is plastic covered…so much less expensive than the beautiful glass ones that I dream of one day owning…I am wondering if I might be able to swing building one of these for myself…I can always rip it down and replace it when I win the lottery.

More pictures of Sue’s garden evolution are available on her flickr page and also in the gallery (below).

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.
