Johnsen Landscapes & Pools

First we created the level space with stone walls, then we added the drainage, lighting, plants and more....This Westchester, NY landscape is delightful - and deer resistant too!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

I'm a sucker for a well-placed piece of artwork or sculpture in a garden setting. This classical bowl on a substantial pedestal has the correct proportion within the space. It rests informally on the green carpet of turf and relates nicely (at about half the height) to the border of ornamental grasses behind it. As for scale, there's something quite elegant about the appropriateness of this piece. I can certainly imagine a much taller sculpture placed here. But I do appreciate how the pedestal's volume echoes the tree trunk at the far right.
Movement and ornamentation. There is something so perfect about this snapshot. I'm drawn to it time and again. The scene has two wonderful expressions of abundance. First, there's a sense of movement and energy conveyed by the masses of ornamental grasses on the hillside — they have a kinetic vibe that's dynamic, even if the breezes are still. Second, the ornamentation is sublime. A bowl placed on a pedestal. That's it. Effortless.
2. Ornamental grasses. This is a more unexpected pairing, but one that really works. The smaller leaves of roses and the pop of their color are striking against the softer, more free-form appearance of ornamental grasses.Try some larger grasses, like this maiden grass (Miscanthus sinensis, zones 5 to 9) or switchgrass (Panicum virgatum, zones 5 to 9), or smaller ones, like Mexican feathergrass (Stipa tenuissima, zones 7 to 10), blue fescue (Festuca glauca, zones 4 to 11) and sedges (Carex spp, zones 4 to 9).Note: Some grasses, like Mexican feathergrass, can be invasive in parts of the U.S. Be sure your plant choices are appropriate and recommended for your area.

Movement and ornamentation. There is something so perfect about this snapshot. I'm drawn to it time and again. The scene has two wonderful expressions of abundance. First, there's a sense of movement and energy conveyed by the masses of ornamental grasses on the hillside — they have a kinetic vibe that's dynamic, even if the breezes are still. Second, the ornamentation is sublime. A bowl placed on a pedestal. That's it. Effortless.
