I have to admit I see a lot of landscapes in my travels through Bergen County and every once in a while – BAM! I see something that stops me dead in my tracks and makes my eyes POP, and this is an example of such.
This landscaped, arced shaped bed that flows along a herringbone designed golf cart paver path at a local golf course, is one remarkable landscape design. The plant selection, their growth habits creating a wave of textures, colors and foliage, and the stone and rock accents just make for one awesome bed of mother nature at her best.
The continuity and contrast within the bed, just enough color strategically placed, and the plantings themselves being spaced as they should be with regards to growth habits, ensures that this bed as it matures will retain its initial design and overall pleasing appearance. The plants being deer resistant add another plus to this bed’s features.
With a natural retaining wall of large boulders and a herringbone designed golf cart path, the plants in this bed are also placed according to height and growth rates so that nothing is blocked. Eye movement through the entire bed becomes constant as the plantings accented with stone and rock just catches your eye for fleeting moments constantly. There is a bench within to ponder upon the magnificent backdrop of towering Colorado Blue Spruce.
There were miscanthus grasses providing spires of plumes to the background and masses of liriope planted within. Sedum “autumn joy”, drought tolerant and deer resistant, were planted throughout accented with splashes of seasonal color.
Designs like this one stick with me. Down the road, someone will need a bed redone or designed, it will have similar growing conditions and may even be an entrance bed, and although it may not be as large as this one, perhaps incorporating just a slice of this bed into the mix with be all that it takes to create someone else’s vision.
And this is why “I LOVE MY JOB”…
