Entering the Garden Landscape: Garden Gates
These two gates are within a single garden landscape for a house designed by Robert A.M. Stern. My favorite is the ‘hobbit’ door. Below the two gates is the garden.
This next gate draws on and enhances the geometries present in a walled garden.
Like other structural elements in a garden, a beautifully-designed gate helps to maintain the garden’s structure and form through that part of the year when nothing blooms. Here is the same gate, which leads to a children’s garden, in two seasons.
Which is your favorite?
