Greenwood Gothic Garden

Greenwood Gothic Garden

It is rare to see a setting that expresses an individual vision that is so completely and well executed. The unusual  analogous  color scheme with a preponderance of black lightened by the smart accents of burgundy and blue (note the dyed  blue water in the fountain) make this garden a stand out. Note also the effective use of color in the  foundation plantings. Greenwood, Seattle, WA, USA
