Dreaming of Spring

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.  

TerraTrellis exhibits @ Dwell on Design 2012

The entire TerraTrellis collection was on exhibit at this year's Dwell On Design conference in Los Angeles.  Dwell on Design is the West Coast’s largest design event, curated by the editors of Dwell Magazine.  This amazing three-day celebration brought together the best and brightest products, art, furniture, structures, ideas and thinkers in modern design today.  Over 25,000 visitors including designers, architects, editors, bloggers, artists, design lovers and gardeners came out to experience this design event.  We so enjoyed meeting thousands of you!

Our clients are so creative.  So clever.  So stylish.  Observe this incredible assemblage of white bougainvillea growing inside our Lazio Vase Trellis in leaf color.  This comes to us from the front yard of Carol Schaeffer (Laurel Canyon resident in Los Angeles). Carol clearly has a great eye for inventive, artful landscaping (notice the exotic silvery succulent and low-water plantings).   Amazing!

There is a must-read article in the May issue of Garden Design Magazine for anyone interested in successfully growing edibles: Up in the Air: Arbors, Trellises and the Edible Garden.  The story, which features TerraTrellis, explores how trellises, arbors and garden tuteurs are essential in creating beautiful, plentiful edible gardens - especially those with sprawling, twining or climbing plants that do well going vertical.
