Willow Arch in a Palo Alto Garden Eclectic Landscape, San Francisco

Fall in a Palo Alto Garden re-design. I designed a Willow Arch for this garden re-design project to go with the Willow furniture purchased for the new Secret Garden. The old lawn will be replaced with a low-water, no mow variety.

Thanks for your question. Just saw it. If I am remembering correctly, there are strong steel supports that go into the ground with a flat steel plate on either side at ground level. The Arbor was made by the Willow Farm in Pescadero California in case you need more information on the anchor. I designed it there with him

You could try. I don't know where that came from. I designed around the existing aggregate, which had been in this garden for many, many years. My dear client, wanted to keep some things about the garden that reminded her of her beloved husband and over 50 years in that house together.

A secret alcove. Gardens are often associated with the concepts of purity, isolation and abundance. This secluded retreat blooming with wildflowers is the ideal, distraction-free space in which to get lost in your writing and spend hours observing the intertwined branches around you.Perfect for … finally finishing that collection of free-verse poems about the tragically short lifespan of the mayfly.Get ideas for creating a secret garden of your own

6. An enclosed space. In more open landscapes, adding a sheltered seating area or a small hedged-in garden can help balance a feeling of openness with one of privacy and seclusion. It’s adding a secret garden within a garden, so to speak. Here, a bed of changing fall foliage and a willow archway partially separate a private seating nook from a more public lawn area. This hidden shaded area would be a wonderful place to settle down with an engrossing book or entertain an intimate group of friends.
