Your view is like a green quilt spread out on the back garden. So varied and textured. The Tea House is clearly set off. It sounds like Mark is itching to make something else. Maybe this winter he can make a Japanese style bench to set here. I can't wait to see the plants you use to bring together the moss garden site. It will need a new name too. :)


Gardens really do evolve to meet the needs of the garden.

Definitely a new name needed. Then again we are still referring to an area as the compost corner even though it has not been the site of the compost bins for at least ten years!


What a glorious view from the bench! Can't wait to see what you plant in the former moss bed.

Thank you for that link to Tom Stuart Smith's design. I can see why you were taken with that design. It's phenomenal and incredibly inspiring and I want that! More than anything, I love your design posts. You are so talented and the opportunity to get into your head and understand the process is so interesting.

I loveTom's work and there are tons of pix on google. But somewhere he did say Hakonechloa sometimes just up and died and that could be a problem. I have had good luck with it once I got it established, so I am crossing my fingers.
