Last Monday, we featured a garden Jay Sifford designed in North Carolina, and things got just a little bit heated (nothing major, but a brief drama.) It left Jay a little nervous to submit another garden, but one of his clients talked him into it!
Jay says this client is fearless, so here goes… Jay says, “I finished installing the initial elements of this lakeside garden earlier this spring. The homeowners, Art and Kim McCulloch of Cornelius, North Carolina, enjoy a lifestyle of informal elegance. Kim is quite artistic and whimsical in her approach to life, which made this garden all the more fun to design.
“The space is filled with a contrast of bright sunlight and dark shadows, which inspired me to use a plant palate of bright chartreuse, dark burgundy, and beautiful blues to balance it all. The stonework is by Ponders, a local company. I came in after the installation of the stone to tie it all together. My strategy revolved around mass plantings and deliberate repetition in order to make an impact in such a large space.”
