We still plan to add a couple more small fences and gates to the garden. So when we were at Anderson Gardens we snapped pictures for our idea file. It is really amazing how many variations they have in the gardens, especially since everything needs a Japanese twist to the design. Note how simple some of these are: just a bamboo pole or a gate with no fence attached; more symbolic than functional. Here are some of our favorites:
I also find it fascinating that the world's most boring Hosta looks fabulous when played against a slightly decorative fence like the one above.
