Daily Garden 061: Narducci by Topher Delaney

I am so excited to make this post for Chris in Ohio. Chris commented yesterday about a post from months ago about a Big Red Sun garden where steps and retaining walls were made with steel. Seems he is being met with shaking heads from local landscapers as he tries to create his own version and I love that I have inspired him to push the limits and make them all think outside of the norm. So Chris is looking for more examples of this material being used in the garden…. and here at Studio ‘g’, if you ask you shall receive…
I have to admit, rose gardens are generally not my thing…but this one is so ‘knock my socks off’ beautiful and interesting, I could be talked into a few of these labor intensive plants.

The garden was designed by Topher Delaney is yet another beautiful example of her thoughtful work.

Chris – does that help? Also, if you are in the San Francisco Area (which I know you probably aren’t) – you could get some positive feedback about your ideas in a class that Topher is offering later this month.  I know I would sign up immediately if I were in the area.

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.
