    Illusion -- creating magic in the garden. Yes, this is where the fun lies, and where the gardener can set her garden apart from the mainstream. It's all in the details, right?
    Agree! Often it's the extras or the little things that I take away from a garden visit, not obvious elements like hardscape or plants (although I like those too, of course). Thanks for sharing your awesome photos!

    Great stuff to ponder...I needed some good illusion, as I try to remain inspired on working drawings for an unenlightened client, who's a big let-down as is his city's staff. While I don't get Scott C's scene there, the lighting does get me going.

    I am a HUGE lighting fan! Consider it one of the least understood yet most impactful aspects of landscape design. I just wish more of my clients were willing to make the investment.


    Great post! I've been trying to figure out how to do something like these illusions in my garden:

    Some advanced planning, some craftiness and well-placed lights is all I need.

    Beautiful link. I know you're a landscape lighting plan, because even though it's been years, I still remember the excellent posts you wrote on lighting your own garden.


    I think this is a real great post.Really looking forward to read more.
