I like this garden, the arbor is well sited and strikes an effective balance between rustic and sophisticated. The owner reported that it was custom sized to fit that location. The seed heads and “brown bits” are left over the winter for good bird forage. The crocus sound a delightful note of optimism for the coming spring. Phinney Ridge, Seattle, WA USA
To be most attractive, gardens need to be inclusive enough to be interesting while also being cohesive enough to be pleasing. This garden has lots of visual activity balanced by the Â cohesive elements of Â size, color, and an extremely meticulous level of maintainance.
Particularly good use of the fence that divides the garden from the sidewalk, instead of a bland picket this fence has been made into a display space of its own, featuring rocks, crockery, tiny sculptures and succulents.

In the winter the structure of the entryway becomes more important. Clinton, WA, USA
