This post will expand with resources about landscape design, including furniture, accessories, pool, and pool-house design. See also The Gardening Post.

Above: Stepped hedges partially block the view of the pool in the winter, when it’s not pretty. Low hedges are architectural.

Above: This is the one.

Above: Hepper Roost Bird House by Jed Crystal. Anodized aluminum.

Left, top: Handcrafted swing made from reclaimed oak. Crafted by Dzierlenga F+U exclusively for Kaufmann Mercantile. Personalized with initials, name, or secret message. Right: Made from cedar, much of the end grain of this swing is covered to prevent water absorption. All swings are made to order.

Bottom: Swing on the property of  Tim and Sarah Belk’s farmhouse in Chester, South Carolina. Read about the project and Charlotte architect Ken Pursley at Garden & Gun.



Left: Hazel wattling has been woven around upright poles of chestnut, which have been cemented into the garden for extra strength. Made from coppiced wood in the UK, these kings of screens are a better ecological choice than chemically treated softwood panels.
