How Does Your Garden Glow?comments (0) February 24th, 2009 in gallery
I designed my pond garden to take advantage of both the sunrise and sunset lights cast by the sun. I harnessed the sun's glow on the plants as a "natural spotlight" and back light to bring out the glistening plumes of ornamental grasses and to reveal the inner hues of my strappy Phormiums.
The result? A dramatic and radiant garden, ready for it's close-up when I awake and when I bid the day goodbye!
Eden Maker Design Tip: Don't rush to create your garden until you have spent lots of time in the yard, studying the sun and shadow patterns. Use the natural light to bring out the "hidden" beauty of your plants and add some drama to the garden!
