Secret Garden

Boulder, CO

Because of this home’s close proximity to neighbors, this project focused on creating a private haven for the owners. Inspired by Victorian gardens, Dakin added a shade pergola with decorative screens and planted wisteria to provide a verdant backdrop for outdoor gatherings or breakfast on the deck. Plantings focused on texture, close growth and the play of light and shade, transforming this in-town yard into a protected haven complete with edible plants.
