The part of the garden that we may not consider, or consider far down the road in our plans, is that of the hardscaping, or garden structure. We plan the shapes and position of garden bed, spend delightful hours poring through plant catalogs, and numerous trips to the nursery while creating our gardens, but often the idea the paths, vertical structures, walls, and other such parts of the garden come only from necessity, inherited from the previous owners, or on a whim. But the more experienced a gardener becomes, the more appreciation builds for planning such features, and the race is on for finding materials and adding to the garden bones of the landscape plan.
This page is that start of a collection of garden design and feature pages centering on the all important hard landscape portions of the garden plan, those stone, wood, and metal forms and structures. Garden buildings such as sheds, furniture such as benches, are all a part of this rewarding part of the garden plan. This will all be with the desire to make this part of garden making more intentional to the purpose that our yards be places of more enjoyment for us and our families.
