            Commercial Installation
This photograph was taken in September of 2006.  The Garden
Goddess, LLC had finished the Garden Design and Lawn
Installation in July. The Blueprints for this Garden Design and
Walkways  were created by The Garden Goddess, LLC.
Note the curved Walkway which leads to the entry and repeats
the curvature of the entry lounge.

Trees are so important to the composition of any good
Design.
Their textures and colours and tracery form the backdrop
to your Design "set".  The trick in choosing Trees, is first to
consider what role they have to play, and secondly how many
virtures and how few vices you can combine in a plant that is
going to loom so large for so long in the Design schematic.  The
Thundercloud Purple Plum Trees shown here, which flower in April
and May with hundreds of pink blossoms, showcase the smaller
plum bushes
prunus japonica.
Eventually the trees will form an arbor over the Walkway.

The Design concept for this Installation was based on reducing
the severity of the modernistic lines of the building, and to  bring a
Landscape of colourful beauty that was highly visible from the
street as well as the interior offices.
A Field Granite double
waterfall.  These stones were
handpicked at a West
Cornwall quarry by The
Garden Goddess, LLC and
delivered to the Wallingford
site.
The facings of the boulders in
front are white quartz which sparkle like  
many diamonds in the morning sun.  
From the interior of the Lounge, the
sound and the look of this Waterfall is a
living canvas of natural art and is very
visible, as are the plantings at the rear of
the Waterfall. The plantings directly in
front of the waterfall are mosses and
thyme, which will eventually form a green
carpet.
Notice how lush these plantings look
just 3 months after installation.  
A
masterful stroke was the use of the dwarf
arborvitae, which maintain their greenness
in the winter. These highlight the stark
silvery white trunks of the River Birches
and the furled winter foliage of the
Rhododendrums and Laurels.
 Coe Memorial Park
      Botanical Gardens
Spring Gardening is dramatized by the
mass plantings of bulbs.  This area is
planted with five hundred colourful tulips in
creams, pinks and peaches. The Garden
opposite is planted with hundreds of
Hyacinthoides (bluebells) and lavender
and white tulips. Planted next to a large
clump of bright blue Delphiniums, are
silvery- lilac pinball Alliums and the deep
midnight blue of perennial Salvia.  The
walkway and the curving lines of the
lounge area are planted with Nepata
(catmint). This is kept trimmed so it flowers
the entire season, as well as forms a
border for both areas.
