Ona’s Garden

Our enthusiastic client had a long wish list of theme gardens and landscape features, all to occur on a sloping, two-acre property.

We used transitions, strategic separations and level changes to create a series of gardens to be experienced individually. This resulted in an experience choreographed as an unfolding series of surprises. Looping around the entire landscape, a Wisteria arbor Walk ties together this eclectic mix of gardens. This walk is under-planted entirely in cushiony scented chamomile; the client wanted to be able to walk barefoot everywhere.

Each area—including a Moon Garden, Fuzzy Garden, Mediterranean Garden, Secret Spiral Garden, Tropical Garden, Rose Garden, Gazebo in a Grass Sea Garden, infinity fountain, waterfalls, large koi pond with bridges and beach, and a “lawn” planted entirely in rain lilies— is its own scene set within the larger context of the whimsical overall story.
