We are nearing the completion of the memorial garden for this stage. There are still artistic elements that have yet to be selected or created. But the stage is set for their arrival.
The entrance into the garden is lined with plantings that create a site line to eventually a fountain. The fountain will be located at the far end which will draw your eye into the space and entice you to explore further.
From an upper view, you can see the layout of the space. It has a formal feel with a strong sense of symmetry.
I selected traditional plants that are associated with formal plantings.. glossy leaves, evergreen, and formal shapes. These include magnolia, roses, boxwood and holly.
The new seat wall is constructed of Winter Blue chopped block with a Silver Mist cap. The taller wall is tiled in slate with an engraved accent tile.
