Daily Garden: Patrick Nadeau’s Artistic Forms

How to use what you have available in design?  This, in my opinion, might be the biggest trend in design in recent years.  Would you agree?  Recycling, reuse, and resourcefulness are more important now than ever before (or at least ever before in the time frame of my career).

Imaginative re-use and re-thinking of the typical forms in gardens is the key element of Patrick Nadeau‘s design workshop where students of horticulture and studioents of garden design collaborate to create contemporary gardens.

I think that some of the ideas are really quite good.  Take for example, the table top gardens made from pallets.  This could help those with mobility issues to access gardening more easily.

And this pretty in pink hay bale garden is hands down, my favorite.  The bold sweep of pink with the bold shape of the bales are like a grownup playground of prettiness that I find endlessly appealing.

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.
