A childhood friend I have long lost touch with recently sent me an email through one of the websites I had my articles published on. He was actually surfing (combing through the net were his words) to find how he can add some “pizzazz” to their garden in time for his daughter’s wedding. It was going to be a late afternoon wedding with the ceremony and the reception held at the same place… their garden.
Don’t get me wrong, their garden was both sprawling and breathtakingly beautiful as it is with all the trees, flowers and shrubbery, which was probably why the bride and groom to-be chose it as their venue, but it did lack the “pizzazz” or the magical and romantic fairy-tale ambiance I believe the couple and the bride’s parents were looking for. Without it, the place would be just that… a beautiful garden.
After reading my article about how I have been a pseudo “exterior” designer, my friend thought I should see their garden personally so I could suggest what needs to be added to achieve the look they were aspiring for.
When I got to their place I immediately knew what was missing… pool fountains. They seriously need at least two considering the size of the space, so it really is swimming pool fountains.
