Garden Tour: Inspiration from 10 Botanical Gardens

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Desert Botanical GardenPhoenix5. Direct the view. Or direct the path too for that matter. This modern zigzag walkway at the Desert Botanical Garden brilliantly pulls visitors into the garden both visually and physically, allowing them to slowly take in the whole scene. Two saguaro cacti (Carnegia gigantea, zones 9 to 10) stand as sentinels and frame the view of the shorter, bushy cactus like big, prickly gateposts, but thanks to the jagged path, it takes your eyes a bit longer to even process that it's the end of the journey.Tip: To direct views in your own garden, use negative space such as a mown lawn, low-growing ground covers or pathways that lead the eye toward a focal point, be it a garden structure, a statue or a specimen plant. Often the eye already has a path to travel on but there's nothing at the destination.
