Garden rooms - SWMOgardens - 06-09-2010

I love building garden rooms. I now have 7 in my 1/3 acre garden, ALTA BIRDSONG. Here is one...

I use the hostas as a "wall" to define the space

The stairs define the "entry"

I "decorate" the room with designer hosta and miniature Japanese maples, and "focal point" hardscaping.

This hosta is like a living "sculpture" At the entrance to the room.

And of course, you must have a comfortable chair to enjoy your room.

Nice work indeed! Depending on the layout and the space you have available, I could see a small water feature really enhancing this gorgeous room. Keep up the good work!

Great scaping,looks the colors all blend in.Question What is the focal point from the seating area? Just wondering,if it is a relaxing area, or people watching ?

Now where am I going to sit my coffee mug when we sit and have hot tea or coffee in one of your beautiful "rooms?" I didn't see a side table..hint! hint!

Have you ever tried growing a hosta in a flower pot/container?
We can't have hostas because of the Bambi and friends visiting unless we want to be out there spraying Liquid Fence every clear day. This is what a neighbor has to do and she has beautiful hostas and has offered me some of hers as they need dividing. So far I have declined her offer but am starting to reconsider and try to grow in a nice pot/container on the patio. It would be easier to spray one container than an entire bed of them as she has.
