A Modern Prairie Garden in Poland

Karolina Dziegielewska's garden is an excellet example of a modern prairie garden! We look forward to see what she designs in the spring!

"We designed a large wooden terrace surrounded by modern pond with waterfall. We also created a second patio, which is located deep in the garden. The house has very large windows so the garden views were important. Garden has two views. The first view runs from the terrace to the patio. Both areas conecting the path of the white concrete elements elements. The second view runs, from the living room window to the aromatic place where we can relax and unwind. We planted aromatic plants, like Thymus between the concrete slabs on the ground (when he stepped on it will spread a wonderful smell) and Lavender ( in a big concrete pot). We used light prarie plants: Echinacea, Perovskie atriplicifolia, Salvia nemerosa, Sedum. The garden is not yet finished; we plan to start pond and waterfall ( in the spring) and install a fence with individual wooden poles in various heights."

    The scapes look airy, bright and streamlined. Can't wait to see your future pond and waterfall and how your garden evolves and matures with time. Thanks for sharing a slice of Poland with us today.

    Your location looks dry and sunny so your choice of prairie plants was inspired. Your plants look beautiful especially the double Echincea. That plant packs a lot of color. If you like red try Echincea Salsa. I have had great success with that one. I would like to see the sedum when it fully opens. The flower heads are massive and the plant is so upright. What is the name for that Sedum?

    Oh please share photos of your upcoming waterfall and pond. I have been looking into the pondless waterfall for my rock garden. If I can my son to come home for a visit to help me move boulders, it just might happen.

    Karolina, you have such a strikingly handsome house that the bar is high for your gardens. However, your shared comments reveal you to be a person who puts a lot of forethought into things so I know your landscaping will develop in a very harmonious way with your surroundings. You've already made great choices with the sedums, grasses Russian sage and that fabulous double fluff of a coneflower. I like the unification of your sleek plant container shape in the black and white...all very contemporary and sophisticated. Can't wait to see more of your garden as you add to it and it grows.

    This garden is truly a canvas - it is art! I love the expanse and the fence plans are intriguing. Once again I wish smell-o-rama was real.
