Daily Garden: Mary Lou’s Swedish Cottage

swedish garden

This Swedish garden belongs to an actress named Mary Lou who spends time here rather than traveling for her holidays.  It is certainly an enviable space – I would be more than happy to spend my holiday here.

Via a twitter design friend I recently learned recently that in western states (particularly California) there has been a significant trend for outdoor bathtubs.  It looks as if that trend – while not in New England, certainly exists beyond the Western US.   This Swedish Tub makes me think that perhaps the idea isn’t quite so impractical in my own Northeastern climate.

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.
