Boulders often serve as an event on a winding path, a backdrop for perennials and grasses, a focal point and sculptural element in the planting beds. They hold interest through the winter and their solidity brings gravity to the garden beds.
This shared community landscape previously lacked a common thread tying the landscape together as a whole. Our goal was to create beauty by bringing about a strong sense of rhythm, harmony and order in the landscape. Using repeating elements and themes, we designed and installed these gardens to offer the feeling of vibrancy and vitality found in nature. The bold forms of the river rock boulders possess a subtle but strong presence, anchoring the perennial and shrub plantings to the earth while their branches and blooms create dazzling arabesques of texture and color.
