8 Design Tricks From Sunny Botanical Gardens


Desert Botanical Garden

5. Direct the view. Or direct the path too for that matter. This modern zigzag walkway at the Desert Botanical Garden brilliantly pulls visitors into the garden both visually and physically, allowing them to slowly take in the whole scene. Two saguaro cacti (Carnegia gigantea, zones 9 to 10) stand as sentinels and frame the view of the shorter, bushy cactus like big, prickly gateposts, but thanks to the jagged path, it takes your eyes a bit longer to even process that it's the end of the journey.

Tip: To direct views in your own garden, use negative space such as a mown lawn, low-growing ground covers or pathways that lead the eye toward a focal point, be it a garden structure, a statue or a specimen plant. Often the eye already has a path to travel on but there's nothing at the destination.

Plans for vegetable garden box

What would be the best site, book, or organization to find plans to build a raised (only like 2 feet, or maybe just 2 feet deep??) vegetable garden box. Preferably a simple wood or recycled materials design with little to no cutting. I just do not know where to go to ask. Any help is greatly appreciated.
