Hollander Design Contributes to WSJ Trends Article
In the WSJ ‘Off Duty’ article on April 12, Ed Hollander tells the Wall Street Journal about specific ways to create structures in the garden that connect indoor with outdoor and extend living space. When designing any type of architectural structure in your garden, he cautions, make sure it is in harmony with the architectural style of your home: “The designs should be in the same language.” See how garden structures are sympathetic to the architecture in this traditional Hamptons home, while landscape elements – including the fence – at this contemporary pool house are more clean and modern.
When space is limited, Hollander recommends finding features that do two things at once. He notes that a traditional Belgian fence does this well: “You’re espaliering fruit trees to create fences, but meanwhile you’re picking apples and pears.” See how this works not only in an contemporary-styled urban space but also in a country setting.
