Steal a View

If you’re lucky enough to have a garden which overlooks somebody else’s great-looking landscape, the quickest way to capture what is famously called a “Borrowed View” is to frame that vista by positioning a pair of significant Urns or Columns, or a duo of elevated Finials, at the edge of your property. Placing a single ornament there would only arrest your line of sight, while pairing ornaments to create a virtual window will allow you to claim the view while you expand the perceived size of your own gardens.

But remember: It’s Big out there, so Scale Up on the dimensions of those decorations. Timidity (in matters of scale and everything else in the garden) isn’t rewarded when you’re borrowing a view.
