It's Coming On Springtime....



Gorden Hayward 




is a brilliant landscape designer.



Hayward offers amateur landscapers these guidelines:

"
Don't be afraid of straight lines in forming bed edges, lawn shape, and paths, especially near the house. After all, your house is geometric; make beds near it geometric, too. Then let beds and paths curve as you get away from the house."





"......avoid putting all planting beds around the perimeter of your house 
and the outer perimeter of the lawn. "












Is your garden ready for spring?

  1. There is nothing better to me than an "Alley of Trees" to stroll between.

  2. Springtime?!...my Cherry blossom trees bloomed at the end of February and finished mid-March. They have already lost all their blooms and regained all their fresh green leaves.

    And, the tiny apple tree at the curb is a bit confused, standing there bare with all of three rough leaves.

  8. I like his philosophy about straight beds, most interesting and makes perfect sense. Curve your beds & paths away from your house.

    I do think being a landscape designer is next best to an architect or interior designer. Would be an incredible career. His work looks magnificent and he looks from his smile like he'd be a blast with a glass of wine at a dinner party.

    Another great post Renee. Love to you xoxo

    i love an 'alley of trees' myself.
    i think his work is wonderful.

    i am sad for your cherry blossom,
    and for the confused apple tree.

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
