“A well-designed pool can be a restful, soothing, and sophisticated water element in a landscape,” says Scott Lewis of Scott Lewis Landscape Architecture. Since launching his San Francisco firm in 1993, Lewis has worked on numerous pools and water features in his designs for residences, resorts, estates, and public institutions. “A pool needs to be […]
The garden looks as if it is doing fine without any help, thank you. Why do any chores in June? The reason is August—when perennials will flop listlessly, whispering, “Help me, mommy,” with their last breath. Late summer may feel distant, but it is just around the corner. With some prudent planning, we can get […]
Amsterdam’s great canals were built in the 17th century, prompting the city’s burgers to rush to build elegantly formal houses on narrow plots of adjacent land. Four hundred years later, the city’s canal house gardens offer ideas to steal for any townhouse garden. If you have a narrow backyard, canal house gardens may offer a […]
Planters as sculpture: handmade clay vessels from Belgian-based Atelier Vierkant function as art for the garden. In the US, the planters–which “explore the possibilities of organic minimalism in form and surface texture”– are available from Interieurs and at Outdoor Therapy in Coral Gables, Florida. To see the full range, go to Atelier Vierkant. Above: The vessels […]
Garlic, Allium sativum Pungent garlic is one of the most satisfying crops to grow. From a single clove planted the previous autumn comes a full, fat head of aromatically fresh summer garlic, quite different from the papery clusters you can buy day in, day out, at any supermarket. The flavor of the new garlic is also […]
After 13 years as head gardener of England’s world-famous gardens at Sissinghurst Castle, Sarah Cook may have been forgiven for putting her feet up when she retired to the beautiful Suffolk countryside. But instead of twiddling her thumbs, she has been on a 14-year odyssey to rediscover and collect Cedric Morris’s bearded iris. The Suffolk-based […]
Wicker furniture is woven, and while the wicker sofa may owe its origins to ancient Egypt’s finely woven baskets made of rush, its look can be distinctly modern. Whatever the material—bamboo, cane, rattan, or weather-resistant plastic—a wickerwork sofa has a light, airy look that looks right at home outdoors or in a breezy screened porch. Here are 10 of […]

(Winning projects also will get full profiles on Gardenista, Remodelista, or The Organized Home, and professional winners get automatic entry into our Architect/Designer Directory.)

Lest anyone not know that hair stylist Justine Jeanin is also a #crazyplantlady, she has a tattoo on her forearm of a woman’s head crowned by a tangle of leaves. For many years, the 30-year-old Parisian kept her two passions separate: by day she cut hair and by night tended her 350 and counting house […]
When we discovered the charms of stepladder plant stands, we became secret admirers of all kinds of foldaway display shelves. Fold-up shelving is particularly useful in the garden, where display needs change dramatically with the seasons. In June, there’s pent-up demand for outdoor shelving—the houseplants want to sun themselves. Plus, the citrus trees that wintered indoors are […]
Oregano, Origanum: “Joy of the Mountain” One of my garden clients came back from vacationing in Spain and gave me some oregano that he had smuggled into the States. Really, I thought? Smuggling culinary herbs? After all, I already had some perfectly fine oregano dried in my spice cupboard and growing in a pot out […]
You don’t need to inherit an ancestral estate to make antiques look at home in a garden. Beautiful vintage stone urns, columns, and planters—or even new ones masquerading as old—can be used in almost any space, including tiny courtyards and small cottage gardens. The trick is to make antiquities feel as if they’ve always been there, […]
What I love about warm weather: Guests show up at a moment’s notice. Sometimes it’s easier to feed them than to seat them, though, unless you have a secret stash of folding chairs–the weather-resistant kind that won’t punish you for absentmindedly leaving them outside when the party’s over. Let us help you with that. Here […]
Hosta, Hosta: “Plantain Lily” My introduction to hostas came when I was the new owner of a 1920s brick row house in Queens, New York. Spring arrived and the tiny shade garden in front of the house revealed its past. The shrubs I thought were surely dead turned out to be two scrawny (but living) […]
This week the Remodelista editors found design inspiration in Flanders, where some of the best designs have a flavor of both Belgium and the Netherlands. Here are five Flemish design ideas to steal. Simple Sofas Julie’s latest discovery: Functional, Understated Furniture from Belgian Designer Marina Bautier. White Faucets “If you’re going for a full-on modern look […]
Astilbe, Astilbe x arendsii: “False Spirea” Astilbe is a perennial plant that the noted American garden writer Allen Lacy praised as “vertical pizzazz.” Not only is it gorgeous but also it’s easy to grow. I learned this firsthand in the early 1990s. After spending several years gardening in a Manhattan apartment house on a sunny but […]
Let’s decode the dovecote—the ultimate birdhouse and a quintessential element of English gardens. Where did these charming shelters for pigeons and doves originate? Would you like one for your own garden? If so, what is the best source? Read on. Photography by Britt Willoughby Dyer, except where noted. First, a quick history lesson. Dovecotes have been […]
This weekend we’re wrapping up our Flemish Gardens issue. Up next? Our week on Postage-Stamp Gardens. For now, here’s what’s on our list for the weekend. The Gardenista Considered Design Awards are officially open to weekend gardeners, landscape architects, houseplant obsessives, garden-to-table growers, and everyone in between. Enter by tomorrow (June 10) and your project may be featured […]
“A roof garden is the ultimate optimization of space in an urban area,” says Julie Farris, a landscape designer and founder of XS Space. “You can have a garden on top of your house without buying more land. If it’s done right, you’ll completely forget you’re in a city—and you don’t need to work that […]
Without hydrangeas, would summer as we know it exist? From Tokyo to Nantucket, their big, blowsy blooms are synonymous with warm nights and lazy days. But don’t take hydrangeas for granted. With more than 75 species, the cheerful flowering shrub in your garden could be anything from a variety of H. arborescens (such as ‘Annabelle’, whose white […]
