The Finishing Touches
Beyond the practical, furniture and accessories set a mood, bring the 'human aspect' to the landscape and complete the artistic composition. Furnishings are an integral part of the garden, providing a comfortable place to relax and commune with nature, enjoy the company of others or take in the view. At Grace Design Associates we see a successful garden as one where the client is an interactive piece in the finished design. To accomplish this, there may need to be a beautiful bench along the path to take in the view or flexible seating around the fire pit for a gathering with friends. An umbrella support in the ground to enjoy sunny days outside around a rustic farm table or a beautiful succulent pot by the front door to add a burst of structure and color even in the cold seasons may seem like a small detail, but make the difference for appreciating the investment in the garden.
