Garden Designers Roundtable – Enclosure vs. Exposure
I’ve lived in 2 countries, visited many more, and I’ve been in all but a hand full of US states – by 18. Many more now, with my observations heightened over my aging memory. All that in more different ecoregions than I can recall off hand. Each has their own quality, right down to personality.
I could never put my finger on why some places that people built all over, either lured me into them to linger, or had me say “next” and run fast from them.
It was how the successful spaces worked – knowing when to let a view hang out, or hold that view back. It’s skill and scale, dont’cha know?
(my apologies for this late posting for the GDRT…it’s a long story) :-)
1) Our Land
2) Our Cities and Towns
3) Enclosure – Solitude, Privacy
4) Exposure – Fiesta!
What say you?
