3rd Street garden

We designed and planted this small sidewalk garden 10 years ago. To create some privacy we created a layered woodland around an entry opening. There is a delicate transparency to the garden, which has remained and changed in character over the years as the plants have matured. The delicate branching of a Japanese maple and native (white-flowered) Redbud provide a dappled shade for the Rhododendrons, Bluebells and ferns. To the rear are 2 Cypress trees.
