Art in the landscape runs the gamut from simple to the sublime. Rustic, whimsical, modern, English, or French garden style? Mine is decidedly eclectic, maybe it could described as “modern random”. This is code for whatever makes me smile.
Please share your garden art. Email a good quality closeup photo to me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are some photos of local garden art that might inspire us to add or create art for our own gardens.
Alison Stevens treated this exterior wall with art she created herself.
Our own Kari Gies has been making some marvelous mosaic stepping stones. Her grandkids gave her a hand. This is a great DIY project that can be done on small rocks, pre-made stepping stones like Kari used, birdhouses, your imagination is the limit.
Jacksonville gardener Cynthia Griffin found this wonderful “spirit house” on a roadside with a sign “free” attached to it. It was a little the worse for wear but she rehabbed it and has it in her bird feeding area with other unique objects.
Jacksonville gardener Alison Stevens has this unique object in her eclectic garden.
Garden art can be structures such as arbors.
