Horticulture, art, design, music, fashion, food and drink. These "best things in life" intersect in a life well-lived, right? They also happen to intersect online, in the wonderfully inspiring blog The Horticult. This beautifully presented site is the creation of the horticulturally-hip and sartorially-savvy couple Chantal Aida Gordon and Ryan Benoit. As they put it:
The Horticult is where we experiment with our space — and also crash other people’s gardens and get inspired. It’s a place where we eat, drink and loosen rootballs, where flora, fauna and culture intersect in unexpected ways.
We were lucky enough to be recently featured in The Horticult and thrilled (but not at all surprised) when just a few weeks later, Chantal and Ryan were discovered in A BIG WAY by the New York Times (see the three page feature Marriage is Yard Work in the Home & Garden section).
Ryan's own design skills are as impressive as Chantal's writing and interviewing talents. Check out Ryan's website Ryan Benoit Design and Chantal's own site ChantalGordon.com to see what we're talking about.
The curiosities Chantal and Ryan explore on The Horticult are influenced by their shared obsession with design and horticulture....and passion for living the good life. We look forward to seeing more of their adventures blossom on The Horticult!

It's artichoke season on California.
During a photoshoot for our new Sculptural Wildlife Habitats (Bee Bungalow, Birdy Bungalow and Birdy Cafe -blog post to come!) we stumbled upon a gorgeous un-staged scene in our edible garden studio that took our breath away. It involved a fruiting artichoke, a bougainvillea 'Orange King' an Akoris Garden Tuteur Sr. in Berry color and a Mira Garden Trellis Sr. in Aubergine color.
We can't help but smile when we see how close the Aubergine color on the trellis matches the underbelly of the artichoke. Each custom color of our TerraTrellis palette is inspired by nature. Case in point.

Pennsylvania is home to untold beautiful gardens and dedicated, passionate gardeners. It's a state filled with horticultural wonders (anyone who's visited the famed Longwood Gardens will attest). A Pennsylvania client named Georgia recently emailed us photos of her glorious spring-summer garden, lovingly filled with a palette of echinacea, roses, geranium and jasmine. Georgia's garden embraces the tradition of a classical landscape that is anchored by strong, architectural elements. We love the juxtaposition of her Akoris Garden Tuteurs against the traditional brick home, giving artful (and functional) structure to the looseness of her plantings.
Oh, and thank you, Georgia, for reminding us of the warmer, more colorful days ahead!
