Daily Garden: Heather’s 21 Garden Rooms

And Speaking of Heather Lenkin….check out her garden….images by brewbooks during a Northwest Horticulture Society tour in 2006.

Heather’s Pasadena garden is comprised of 21 different garden rooms on a hillside.  Each room seems to have a new surprise.  The turquoise room not only features these beautiful balls and matching  plants but also a fog machine that definitely creates a certain mood.

Throughout the garden there are exciting details that make each space unique and interesting.

I love this idea of having fun with sculpture….cherubs in a garden would communicate a certain stuffiness that I would generally avoid….but suspending them over head takes them down a notch and makes them playful and quite  funny.  Would you agree?

The other thing that I am enjoying is having a poke around her garden and then having a poke around her design portfolio…you can certainly see how a designer tries things out experiments before carrying an idea into a clients property.

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.
