Zen and the Art of Garden Maintenance

There is an absolutely beautiful little blog post which I highly recommend to you all: Keeping Mulch and other BrownScapes ManicuredAfter clearing the "What colour is the zebra" question up for Fereday... it prompted me to think of other gardening-related zenism.....Along the lines of "if a tree falls in the forest, and there is no one to hear it, does it make a sound", how about:"if a gardener steps on his rake, and there is no one around, does he make a girly scream?""if a gardener runs from a spider, and there is no one around, does he look like he's practicing his Morris dancing?"finally..."what is the sound of one glove flapping?"

Why this Garden Works

Each article is presented by landscape designer, Tracy Rich, who will examine a single garden and provide design tips based on that garden's layout, materials and planting.

Tuinen Mien Ruys

Mien Ruys' own garden in the Netherlands is the ideal place to start a new series on design articles on 'Why this Garden Works'.

Lan Su Chinese Garden

Lan Su is a great example of urban garden design. Its whole purpose is to help people relax and to inspire creativity by connecting with nature, even in the centre of town. 

Hauser & Wirth Garden

The main wow factor of this garden is the large perennial meadow out the back called Oudolf Field after its famous Dutch designer, Piet Oudolf. However, the gallery complex also contains some other very interesting spaces.
