Backyard Dreaming


Sometimes I find myself planning for the backyard I don’t have (yet). In my imaginary layout, I want room for a pool, but growing up in metro Detroit, it’s hard to picture anything but the standard above ground pool. And then I came across these gardens designed by  Rick Eckersley. Hello gorgeous.

    Thanks for posting a blog with two images of gardens we have designed! Please don’t put in an above ground pool!!! We hope you can achieve something similar to our designs in your imaginary garden.

    Thanks for commenting and for creating such beautiful gardens I can draw inspiration from. I’ll NEVER put in an above ground pool! 🙂
