Daily Garden: Lake Forest Park Glass Garden

textural plants and glass garden sculpture

I am not typically a big fan of things like this (that is baubles shoved in with the plants) but this combo of textural plants and glass sculpture so nicely and interestingly elevate each other that I am perhaps reconsidering…at least for this one instance.

Picture was taken by jchants on the Lake Forest Park Secret Gardens Tour.

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 see what you mean, but on the other hand the combination of vertical elements and acid colors among those sweeping, mellow plantings is jarring to me.

    I love the glass – especially the plant-like form. But the photo is already busy – many colors and forms jammed together, without organizing lines or repetition. I would love them more in a patch of gold and red heuchera or coleus, tucked along a side yard to make you look. It is a small scale focal point, and needs a smaller frame.
