The gardens around the home of Debbie Friedman bask in sunshine. A wooded area at the back of the property offers a shady respite. Garden décor made from natural materials are featured throughout. Take a walk with me.
A bench made from a log sits on a flagstone patio in a slice-of-meadow front garden replete with Rudbeckia maxima, Verbena bonarienses, and bellflowers. Fashioned from a stump and nest of willow, the side table complements the bench.
Small ornamental grasses planted on both sides of the front walk guide visitors to the front door.
Log slices, used to create small paths and patios throughout the landscape, signal the transition from front to back yard.
In the backyard, a trio of spheres weaved from willow sit on the lawn.
Hollow stumps become works of art when positioned on their sides.
A wall of bamboo marks the back of the property.
Stems were harvested and used to edge the area under the hammock.
There are plenty of places to relax in both the sunny and shady areas of the landscape.
A fountain welcomes lingering on the sun-drenched patio.
Clematis clambers from the lower patio onto the railing of the deck above.
If you love natural décor in the landscape, the garden of Debbie Friedman was chock-full of ideas. Many would fit perfectly in my own landscape. How about yours? Garden with me!
