Before & After: Ulrika’s Watercolor Garden

Are you stuck in the house?  Perhaps dreaming of summer?  Maybe you have a great image of your garden or someone elses and you can do a little before and after work like this.  I guarantee if you try to paint your favorite garden image, you will look at the scene in a different  — and probably more insightful — light.

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.

    Hi Rochelle!

    Nice blog, I’ve visited you a few times already, and I do like your Before and After posts! You show interesting examples. Thanks for kindly showing images from my blog and linking back! Appreciate that!
    I can see that you’ve used the Translater, since Ulrikas correct name is Ulrika Tornare, which would translate to Towers….:-)

    Greetings from a snowy and cold Stockholm, Sweden,
