Where flora & fauna meet design: creating an artful mini ecosystem with the Gracie Modern Arbor

One recent fall morning, photographer and digital media producer Adam Grossman looked out his kitchen window to admire his vine-covered Gracie Modern Arbor in the morning light. 

Just a few minutes later a visitor appeared; a bird of prey taking a bath and enjoying the peaceful shelter of the arbor.             

The solitary visitor was likely a red-tailed hawk a species that live in the nearby Santa Monica Mountains.


Later that day, Adam encountered a different creature of prey, a juvenile mantis taking respite under the same Gracie Arbor. The mantis is considered by many to be a beneficial insect and a welcome visitor to the garden. 

We love to see our sculptural trellises bringing together wildlife and art. Right in our own front yards.
