First up we have Fredda's topiary chicken shrubs!
Versailles, for example, would not look as grand without all of the knotted shrubs with their clean edges creating a great tapestry of plants. I am more of a naturalistic designer, it's a personal preference, but I favor natural or adapted plants and a design that spotlights a plant's natural beauty. All of that being said, I would have topiary chickens in my yard in a heartbeat if they didn't require constant pruning. How fun are these?
Down the street side of the yard you will find an alley that culminates in a black, wrought iron fountain before ending with the gate to the backyard.
Throughout the yard Fredda has large potted plants which create small focal features and vary the plant height throughout the space. Heading from the backyard to the other side yard, you will find a seating area with a bright blue table and chairs by another of Fredda's mosaic pieces.In the side yard separating her property from her neighbor's, Fredda has created an arbor from an old bed spring, headboard, and some timber. All she needs is a small bench and for her plants to climb up and through the springs and this will be a picture perfect place to spend some outdoor time.
