Daily Garden: Classic Silver and White

I think the hardest part about making a good design is restraint.  I love such a wide range of styles and looks and I always have the temptation to bring way too many ideas to the table…restraint and defining a refined vision that you can stick to is key to achieving a great design (no matter if we are talking interiors, exteriors, graphic, architectural or whatever).

The lesson I take from this garden is the reminder of restraint.  The simple plant palette and color scheme keep this garden serenely inviting and truly provides the serene respite that so many people hope to create in their gardens.

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 love the slate tabletops that match the pavers. So restful.
