Garden Gallery: Simplicity

It is the typical lament of the garden worker that spring is just nuts.  As much as anyone else I am prone to the insanity of the sudden onset of additional work.  I am already craving simplicity and quiet again — this garden brought me right there.

I think:

Who says we need more than a couple chairs, some grass, a hedge and a few treesWe try to work so much in to our limited areas, but this reminds me that maybe we just don’t need to.  This doesn’t need weeding, and so much of the rest of the maintenance we ascribe to our gardens.  And  it just makes me feel like breathing easy.

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.

    Too much work. That grass would need cutting and the hedge would need trimming and the trees would need pruning. And you would have to move the chairs to do all that.
