Be it a stately statue, column, arch or pergola, an Eyecatcher (as English gardeners call them) instantly provides a focal point within the garden, as well as one which can be appreciated from a distance, and throughout every season.
Nestled in a woodland garden, a tall vertical element will echo the contours of surrounding trees. Mounted upon an open landscape, an imposing Eyecatcher will present a dramatic silhouette against the sky. Espaliered fruits and flowering vines will be healthier if given lattices to cling to and bowers to climb.
Although it may seem counter-intuitive, by adding a few statuesque ornaments to our gardens, the grounds that we design will better harmonize with the natural world.
