Chelsea – The Art of Yorkshire Garden

I loved this little garden. It was one of seven small-space gardens called “Artisan Gardens.” Designed by Gillespies, it’s representing, obvious the art & artists of Yorkshire — including Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, David Hockney, Andy Goldsworhty and JMW Turner. It even had a Hepworth sculpture in it.Traditional field patterns form the foreground, rolling moors in the mid-ground, complete with the undulating rocky hills in the background are framed — with a frame — for the viewer.

I liked the frame — forcing a specific view of the garden reminiscent of the landscapes favored by the artists above. I also really like the dry-staked stone walls topped with side-laid slate.

Rolling stone hills represented by the rolling stone walls.

I have a long-time garden blog, a popular garden on America's largest garden tour, and have co-written a book on garden design titled, "Buffalo-Style Gardens: Create a Quirky, One-of-a-Kind Private Garden with Eye-Catching Designs" When I'm not doing all that, I am an advertising designer always out looking to design things to promote your business. Look me up at #jcharlier.

    The little frames give me some ideas for another approach to my little garden 🙂
