New Photos of Watershed – The Exception That Proves the Rule June 15, 2011

The Watershed is a mixed-use commercial/residential building and a rare exception to our  residential garden focus.  We can’t say enough good things about the structure (green materials, local artisans, just fantastic inside and out), and we couldn’t be more grateful for the trust that the owners had in allowing us to design and plant their garden.  The plantings at ground level and on each of the many terraces are diverse, super resilient, and require very little water from the rainwater catchment system.  We think that the courtyard and rusting metal water feature are a strong, grounding center to an unusual,  beautiful space.  Buell took a few new shots of the garden yesterday, and we’d love to know what you think!

(More info on the July 9 Open Garden coming soon!)

The basin of this rusting metal fountain is about 5 feet tall
