this client had her own fabulous containers – we added some ‘color drama’ to her outdoor living room with elderberry black lace, plecanthus, bright begonias with cool pointy leaves + salvia ‘black + blue’.

a pair of our client’s wood planters flank her back deck – fun with cut leaf maples, heuchera ‘autumn bride’, heuchera ‘creme brulee’ (we use it because it’s such a great name), plecantush, salvia

we are still gathering photos for:  a new look at 1000 pleasant street – this season’s Artefact pairing:  red landscape roses, salvia lyrata ‘purple volcano’, heuchera ‘midnight rose’, gaura ‘passionate rainbow’, hosta ‘august moon’, salvia ‘blue hill’ + astilbe ‘montgomery’ – interspersed with the other plantings that ‘made it through the winter of 2014-2015’ – a rather delightful look….and the 2 blue, white, green + purple garden installs we have completed this season, a classic container grouping in belmont, a wild + vibrant yard, modern plantings in old school planters in arlington

‘white is right’

it’s once again that time of year – Wimbledon at The All England Lawn Tennis + Croquet Club – where ‘white is right‘.  we grew up playing tennis at the clubs on the north shore…where proper tennis attire was WHITE! i have always loved the ‘color’ \ – and we have so many wonderful ‘white’ or ‘almost white’ items at Artefact Home|Garden….
