Inspired by: Anna Garforth

You probably have seen Anna Garforth’s work around….she is one of the original ‘moss words on walls’ artists.  But she has some other really exciting and inspiring work too.   Like this piece called ‘The Big Bang’.  She describes it: “The Big Bang depicts Mother Earth as a seed shattering explosion.”  — I love the varied textures of the mosses used.  Like a painting.


And isn’t this nameless pet sweet?  Perfect company for a gardener who doesn’t want scratched up furniture or pee circles in the grass.

But the thing I am loving the most is this chain link fence installation.  Before seeing this, I could have argued for the complete banishment of chainlink fences.  But combine it with masking tape to create a garden-y typography masterpiece and suddenly, not only do I  want to banish it, but I want some……I wonder if I can do something this cool on the chicken wire that encloses my chicken coop?

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.
