Sculpture Surprises in the Garden

Today we get to enjoy sculpture surprises in Roger and Mary Greenberg's garden!

"It has been fun to intersperse sculpture with textured plants in our garden.  It provides  visual interest as well as a structural balance to the different leafy moods  in the garden. Also, when guests are visiting our garden, they love the “surprises”  as they stroll through the paths."

Keep sending in photos, everyone! Whether you've never shared before or you've been featured multiple times, we want to see your garden! Email a few photos and a little info about your garden to [email protected].

    The garden always becomes more interesting with the addition of art. I love the iron art in the 2nd and 4th photos Roger and Mary! Could you please tell all of us about the pieces themselves - the artist or where purchased and how you figured out where to weave them in your landscape. The intermingling with plants are wonderful.

    Thank you Susan for publishing more photos. I am pretty sure it's not just me that appreciates this.

    Wonderful job, Roger and Mary, making such organically grounded art selections for your garden. I can easily imagine the smiles of delight that their discovery brings to your garden visitors. That's a particularly appealing photo showcasing the relationship between the rusted trellis (?) and the red Japanese maple leaves. And, anyone know what the fine leafed plant is in the last picture?
    I share Cherry's graditude for the posting of the additional number of pictures.

      Looks like bamboo to me in the last picture.

    Roger and Mary, your garden and sculpture choices are both exquisite. In what state do you garden? The metal sculpture and the wooden lifesavers are just incredible and very tasteful. I love the texture of your plantings, especially the silver plants with the owl. Is that front, silver, leafless plant Leukophyta brownie? Super cool.
    Yes, thanks for more photos, Susan. I know it's a lot of work!!!

    Gorgeous! What a treat it is to find such lovely and interesting accents tucked away or adding dramatic focal points to what is a wonderful selection of plants. Your garden seems to be on a steep and rocky hillside. I would love to hear more about it, especially the plant names, and see more photos (Thank you Susan for the few more today).

    Roger and Mary, you must get excited every time someone new strolls through your gardens. The smiles on their faces has to give you great joy... you have created something very, very special.

    What a delight Roger and Mary. It would be such fun to wander through the garden and find these surprises around the corner. Love the rusty trellis with the Japanese Maple. Love to hear more about your garden, I gather you are on a hillside which is not easy to work on.
    Thanks Susan for more pictures.

    Roger and Mary,I can't remember if we have seen your lovely gardens before,I think not,correct me if I'm wrong,but I belive I would remember your gardens. I love to see sculpture and dodads added in gardens it adds the personality of the gardeners to the landscaping.Your Japanese maples are so beautiful. Our gardens include many many maples too and they add so much color and texture. I love the bamboo around the interlocking wooden sculptures,what a find or did you carve those yourselves?
    Thank you for sharing your beautiful gardens with us and thank you Susan for more photos to enjoy,it is most definitely appreciated.
