Spotlight on Philip Nixon Design

Awesome firm!  Note the use of solids and voids.  An excellent display of plants used for traffic control and circulation. 

I also love the use of the planters and water elements throughout the design.

It is also very well illuminated.

This project is a residential one.  The fence is a nice backdrop for the outdoor living spaces and doubles as wood storage for a firepit.

These trees look espaliered to me.  They serve as a high privacy screen.  I would love to see them in winter without their leaves.

  1. These are beautiful but something nags me about them: the severe control, more art than nature. I'd like to see more of the building to see the garden in context.

  2. Beautiful gardens :-) I love the water feature in the third picture and the feathery grasses in the last picture.

    Thanks for the birthday wishes. Victoria totally surprised me with the purple post!! Yeah, she's a pretty good blog partner :-)
