The Artful Garden
The most obvious notion of the artful garden is the incorporation of art, e.g. sculpture and ornament, into the garden but another aspect is the realization that structures such as fences and arbors can be artistic, not just functional. Add creative garden design plus thoughtful choices and uses of plant material to make your garden a living work of art. Take home ideas:
- Be bold with color. For instance, fences don’t have to be gray, white, or black.
- Make a vegetable garden more than a place to raise food. Include painted obelisks for vining vegetables such as squashes and tomatoes.
- Art is in the eye of the beholder. This is an ideal time to recycle and incorporate found objects.
