The Power of Peekaboo

Positioning an ornament so that it’s partially hidden by foliage adds the elements of delight and drama to a garden. Sometimes, coyness is sexier than a full-reveal. Tuck a lichen-covered lion into a crisply-clipped hedge. Hide a marble maiden behind a veil of blossoms. Carve one corner out of a trapezoidal yew to create a majestic backdrop for an urn.

Ornaments which are displayed by using these subtle but nevertheless theatrical tricks will powerfully affect your visitors: their paces will slow, their imaginations will become engaged, and their enjoyment of your gardens will be enhanced.
