Old World Elegance
My yard is divided into five different "garden rooms" with an overall Arts & Crafts style: A Mediterranean garden, a formal rose garden, a traditional English mixed border, and an Italian garden. There is also an adjacent work area. Throughout the garden are strategically placed garden ornaments and architectural features that I have hand made especially for the garden. These features reflect Renaissance, Arts & Crafts and Baroque periods. They are made of natural materials including lava rock, beach pebbles, cut terra cotta and other materials. Ornaments include obelisks, fountains, madonnella, pebble mosaic pavement and pottery.
