Are you a reader over at Andrea Bellamy’s blog Heavy Petal.  She writes about urban gardening in Vancouver, CA.   It’s a great blog.  I am excited to share with you her garden makover – she did a terrific job of making a drab urban plot into a sleek contemporary space.

Here are some more details from this beautiful modern garden makeover. The woodland Garden…I love the interest of the pebbles replacing the paver.

The modern white birdhouse really pops against the made over fence.

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.
