I’ve had a number of readers send me photos and links to great outdoor rooms. THANK YOU so much, you are all so helpful to me, thank you! I will be sharing each and everyone of your ideas and photos over time! Today I thought I would share some photos from Australian garden designer Peter Fudge. I found his amazing portfolio through Australian reader Chantal, who has the lovely blog Interior Dreaming. I was so inspired by the photos of this landscape designer. As much as I love color and flowers, I am always drawn to green gardens.
I love the idea of using shapes, layers and textures to create interest. This designer has done a masterful job! This is just a small sampling of his work.
I love this! Repeating plants down a walkway and a piece of garden statuary. Stunning!
LOVE! What a nice little spot to sit and enjoy the layers of greenery!
Symmetry always works well and is visually soothing
Cozy seating in dappled shade and pretty spring pillows!
Love the use of vine covered old shutters and chandelier in the outdoor space.
A few ideas for thought:
- Try repeating plants along borders for a unified and cohesive look
- Create layers of green plants utilizing different shapes & textures
- Utilize evergreen shrubs as a base for long lasting garden landscapes
- Use old shutters, thrift store tables, old chairs and garden statues to create architectural interest
- Use outdoor fabric to make pillows for benches
